You’re kidding, right? Â Who WOULDN’T fly a tailwheel??! Those airplanes with the thing under their nose, they just look wrong! I fly a 7KCAB Citabria…………..
Love my tailwheels!Â And love your organization!!

ooohhh, i only just now checked my messages on our wonderful taildragger site…so sorry if i didn’t get back to any of you!! i love this site and reading about all of YOU!
i flew an open air biplane this weekend, a Marquart Charger!! did 2 hammerheads & 1 aileron/barrel roll (can’t decide what it really was!!), and flew about 50 feet over the Willamette River for about an hour!!!
landing it was hilarious and thank goodness, a very forgiving aeroplane, but needless to say, forward visibility was nill!
i was freezing and my legs totally frozen on the rudder pedals but i’m ready to jump in her again, any time!!
have a great day!!

How fun! I’m looking forward to that next item on my list, aerobatics (and open cockpit would be awesome), after I have finished a glider rating.

It was great to meet you at Lenhardt and I love seeing you here to represent Oregon. We missed you at breakfast Friday but the gals are planning another breakfast fly-out next month. (Oct 7th, I believe) Hope to see you then.

Hey Barbe! Seen you on FB, nice to see you on here!
I was just at KMMV last weekend – got married Sat & brought my family & several pilot friends to the Evergreen Aviation Museum on Sun. We traveled in a fleet that Dave loaned us from Willamette Aviation. I was eyeing that gorgeous Citabria while following it in on downwind & missing my Super Decathlon!
Wish I’d known you were around KMMV – I’d have looked you up. Next time!

Come out and MEET some of the taildragger pilots–and a few others, at my Woman Wise Airmanship fly-in (or drive in) Symposium at Smiley Creek Idaho. Details on this website with photos. Promises to be a lot of fun. And, you’re not that far. Love the paint scheme on your citabria… Come on out!

Hi Barbe. McMinville isn’t tooooo far from Wyoming. Maybe I’ll run into you some day. My mom and dad spend time in Bend about once a year and I’ve always though about flying there to visit. Seems like it’s always a busy time of year for me though (work-wise). Oregon seems to have a very healthy GA community.
