May 2017 Jessica Bower (Wisconsin)
Jessica Bower is based atÂ KATW,Â Appleton International Airport,Â Appleton, Wisconsin.
I caught the flying bug at age 6 when my dad took me for my first airplane ride. I got my license at 19, just after starting college for aerospace engineering. I have worked as a design engineer in big aerospace and in the experimental kit world.
Ratings: Private Pilot SEL, taildragger endorsement
Aircraft flown: Citabria, Sonex, RV6, Piper Cherokee, Cessna 172
Favorite taildragger: At the moment, my Citabria! Other than that I’d love to fly a Lockheed Model 12
I am new to taildragger flying, but I love the challenge and the opportunity to improve my stick and rudder skills. Plus, they just look better!
