Good things can happen when one lady taildragger pilot meets another. Tina Thomas from Poplar Grove Airport is a fantastic ambassador for taildraggin’, spreading the word about LadiesLoveTaildraggers every chance she gets. Thank you Tina, keep on keeping on!! 🙂
Welcome to new member Jane Hartsock who is based at KPOH, Pocahontas Municipal Airport,Â Pocahontas, Iowa.
Jane Hartsock emailed me last week.
“We recently met Steve and Tina Thomas in Poplar Grove. Tina encouraged me to send a picture and join the LadiesLoveTaildraggers group. Â My current airplane is a Cessna 140.Â I flew both of the taildraggers in this picture when we owned them.Â I have flown several taildraggers.Â When the weather gets warmer, Iâ€™ll get a picture with the C140 and send it to you.” Jane Hartsock
Wow, check out the list of aircraft Jane has flown. If my count is right, 10 of the 14 are taildraggers! C150, C172, 7KCAB, PA12, 7GC, PA20, 8GCBC, PA25, PA22, 7EC, C140, Beech P35, C195, and C180.Â Jane says she’s been flying for 20 years and flies mostly locally.
Jane’s dream taildragger is a Cessna 140 and she loves to fly low and slow.
