Not only is the Champ’s new paint job beautiful, Jennifer looks pretty awesome in her LadiesLoveTaildraggers tshirt too!

I’ve always walked around facing skyward but I didn’t actually get my pilot’s license until 13 years ago, well after my kids were well established in their own lives. With the encouragement of my husband I fulfilled my lifelong dream and am ever so happy that I did! I’ve owned a Grumman AA1B for 12 years but let my medical expire a year ago. Even though my husband is a wonderful right seat, I really missed flying by myself and so purchased a 1946 Champ 7AC earlier this summer (2014) so that I can fly under light sport rules.

I currently have about 10 hours of tailwheel time and am still working on my transition with Charles Lewis at 05N in Winterville, NC. I have found the transition more challenging than I expected but the grin factor is huge! Each flight leaves me anxious to get back for more! Through Charles I have discovered a whole new and exciting world of flying to grass trips in my own backyard that I never knew existed before. I love flying taildraggers!
