Feb 2017 Emily Daniel (Texas)
Emily Daniel is based at KCWC,Â Kickapoo Downtown Airport, Wichita Falls, Texas.
I started flying when I was 13 with the dream of becoming an aerobatic pilot. Since then, I have logged around 800 hours, and have completed most of my ratings, with the hopes of finishing my MEI in 2017. While I have only begun my aerobatic training, I have learned a lot and am excited to keep learning. My husband and I recently purchased a Steen Skybolt to help me build more tailwheel time and get some aerobatic instruction! My ultimate dream is to become an agricultural pilot. I’m currently working as a CFII in the North Texas region, but I’m originally from New Jersey!
One of my favorite tailwheel moments was flying myself into my own wedding! My dad gave me my tailwheel endorsement several years ago. We flew into my wedding together in his J3 Cub, and it is an experience I’ll never forget!!
Ratings: Instrument, commercial, multi engine, CFI, CFII
I love the feeling of “real” flying. Nothing makes flying trickier than using your feet and using them well! It is always a challenge, and you can never let your guard down. I love to challenge myself each and every flight!
