Debra DuBois-Brinker is based at 67AR,Â Wedington Woods Airport,Â Fayetteville, Arkansas.Â
I am a private pilot soon to be working on my tailwheel certification. My husband and I have two taildraggers, a 46 Aeronca Champ and a 46 Globe Swift.
We live on a grass strip and love the sound of airplanes in our backyard!Â
I grew up in Ottumwa, Iowa where the Antique Airplane Association originally used to be at the airbase before they moved it to Blakesburg, Iowa. Â My dad was an airplane mechanic during WWII Â and he loved taking me to air shows when I was small. Â My mother shoved me in an airplane when I was 7 or 8 at one of those fly-ins and I was in love with airplanes. Â Time passed and and I didnâ€™t get my license until Â I was in my early 50â€™s now at 60 I am looking forward to that tailwheel sign off.
