Just discovered your group via AOPA – terrific! I learned to fly in a Champ in 1956 then worked my way through The Univ of Okla teaching in Champs. My book “The Fabulous Flight of the Three Musketeers” tells what all that led to. I flew the Air Race Classic one year in a Husky and there are often one or two tailwheelers in the race. The “good old boys” at one stop said, “We’re glad there’s somebody in this race flying a REAL airplane.” Living in Idaho, though I now fly “something else”, this is tailwheel country into our back country – lots of Super Cubs, and Cessna 180s and 185s. Love your group and enthusiasm.
