Christine Potje (California)

Rating: Private pilot certificate. Taking my Instrument checkride on March 7th. I earned a 90% on my written knowledge test for instrument rating.

Dream Taildragger: Boeing Stearman!!!

Thoughts on taildragging: Three weeks ago I was invited to go on a “lunch fly-in” with some local pilots. I sat in the rear seat of a Cessna L19 Bird Dog. This taildragger was used in the Vietnam War as a spotter plane to located enemy ground positions. After spending the afternoon with the pilot and getting the full education of this plane, I realized how lucky I was to have had the experience in this old Cessna. This made me realize that tailwheel planes are a sparse and not-common endorsement for up and coming pilots. The history is so important and I do not want it to be forgotten. I would love the opportunity to have my tailwheel endorsement and to utilize that skill that I can pass onto my future students as I become a CFI.
