May 2016 Enjoy the Journey …
Hey people, have you seen a LadiesLoveTaildraggers Fly-in video?!! The year is 2013 and, same as ALL of our fly-ins, the good weather is sometimes punctuated by periods of crappy weather. Funny thing though, those that fly, sit and wait out the weather, and make their way to our fly-ins have a great time. The long range weather forecast for KSLR Texas is great but I’m preparing you and me both for the possible periods of inclement weather. If you’re flying to the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas Flyin-in/Splash-in, start early. Give yourself extra hours or extra days. Fly safe and enjoy your trip. Half the fun is your adventure to and from so don’t shortchange yourself.
Let’s hear from you if you remember the 2013 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Fly-in at Savannah, TN!
By watching the aircraft comings & goings at the airport I am based, I know many pilots rarely fly cross-country. The reality is most rarely stray more than 50 miles from home. I object to that and believe the real fun starts when you are in unfamiliar territory. You need to get a tiny bit out of your comfort zone to stretch yourself and grow as a pilot. Whether it’s the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Fly-in/Splash-inÂ or another fantastic fly-in on the horizon, please do it. Years from now, in the end, you will only regret the things you did NOT do.
