Apr 2010 Donna Guerin (Alabama)
Donna Guerin is based at her home and has a 2200′ grass strip in her front yard. Â It’s about 10 nm from Huntsville, Alabama’s Moontown Airport (3M5).
I got my Private in May of 2007 after flying right seat for 6 months with my husband – no reason for him to have all the fun! Â Since then I have gotten high performance and tailwheel endorsements. Â Bought my little jewel (a 1940 J5A) in Sept of 2008 and have logged over 100 hours in her. Â We have a 2,200′ grass strip in our front yard. Â Talk about blessed! Â I really enjoy flying the Cub and get her out as often as the weather allows.
We just finished restoration of another 1940 J5A that was given to my husband by his Dad before he passed in 2004. Â It is the red and Â white J5 in the picture.

Donna, this is neat. My first airplane that I owned was a 1940 J-5 s/n 9. It was a ragged old thing that needed TLC. But that was in 1972 and I was a college kid working as a flight instructor at a local airport. I didn’t have the money to fix it up. I flew it for about a year then sold it. I always wondered where it went. It was NC26953. The J-5 is so much roomier than the J-3 and flies better too. You have a wonderful airplane and glad you have it in such nice shape.
