Dec 2012 Follow up to “What taildraggers do the ladies fly?”
Verb.Â To calculate again, especially in order to eliminate errors or to incorporate additional factors or data.
Alrighty people, because of comments and emails about the “official” numbers posted regarding what taildraggers the ladies love to fly, I’m back with this update. As always, your comments are very much appreciated. I’ve recalculated, grouping similar taildraggers together… within reason. This time I’m reporting actual “numbers” vs. “percentages” but again, don’t take my numbers to the bank. As Natalie McHaffie wrote in her comment, “And hereâ€™s a good example of â€œyou canâ€™t keep up to dateâ€. I sold my Pitts last weekend!”Â Â My goal is to get as close as I can to reality and not shortchange any taildragger types!
Starting with the third most popular group…
Cessnas #3; 120, 140, 150TD, 170, 180 & 185 – Total 49
Aeroncas #2; Champ, Chief, Citabria & Decathlon – Total 54
And at Number One
Pipers #1; J3, J5, PA-11, PA-12 & PA-18 (only tandems) – Total 68. (Add in Cub clones & you’re up to 74)
What I thought was the most interesting is that over 50% of our members fall into one of these groups. Â And for the many onesie, twosies like aÂ Warner Air Sportster,Â Whittman Tailwind and Summer Martell’s Student Prince – you’re in the rarer breeds that we love to read about. Keep flying and send in your updates ladies!! Â mailto:ladytaildraggers@
