Oct 2014 Carol Walker (Texas)
Carol Walker is based at KJWY, Mid-Way Regional Airport, Midlothian/Waxahachie, Texas.
Twenty six years ago I learned how to fly in tailwheel aircraft (Citabria and Champ) in Kutztown, PA. Ever since then I have made my living as a flight instructor and I presently own a school south of Dallas, TX where we teach exclusively in tailwheel airplanes and gliders.
My husband Pete and I have a stable of aircraft, each with their own unique charm. This allows us to fly anything from a charming, slow J-3 Cub to an adrenaline-soaked Pitts S2-B and anything in between.
Our primary students are taught to fly in a 150 hp Citabria. The students who desire aerobatic training begin in our Great Lakes biplane and then move on to the Pitts.
And for those pilots who want to take in the world at a slower pace there is always the Cub!
Ten years ago my husband Pete and I were married aloft in a beautiful DC-3. Pete loves taildraggers too!
Owner Big Q Aviation
I own this with my husband Pete. We teach people to fly taildraggers, to fly gliders, to fly biplanes and to do aerobatics. We tow advertising banners around the cities.
