Introducing young girls to flying

This post submitted by lady taildragger pilot Lynn Gardner.

On March 7th I was pleased to participate in introducing a group of young girls to flying. Held in Ocala, Florida, we had 20 young girls attend a morning event sponsored by the local EAA chapter and coordinated by CarolAnn Garratt. The group each flew a young eagle flight, did a preflight, had a ground school session and took a tour of the tower. It was a very busy morning.

I am very pleased that 3 of the 5 aircraft giving the rides were flown by Lady Taildragger pilots. Not all are members here, but I’m working on it.

Next year, it would be great if ALL pilots came from our group. I will keep March 6, 2016 open and I hope you will as well.
