Feb 2011 Gene Nora Jessen (Idaho)
Gene Nora Jessen is based at (BOI) Boise Airport, Boise, Idaho.
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.

I would love to meet you someday in the not so far off future. I am planning a trip from Portland to Salt Lake City this summer. Boise is not far off the direct path to SLC. Would you be up for a meet at the airport if I flew through?

Could be, but it would have been a good while back – I was there perhaps in the late eighties. Gene Nora

Without our elders, who would share all the experience we can never hope to get ourselves? As for age, I’m sure the average of most pilots now is over 50…
Did I meet you at Sun’n’Fun once? I came with Pat Hange, who is in Arcadia.
