Mar 2019 Jessica Vanderzwaag (Missouri)
Jessica Vanderzwaag is based at 1MO, Mountain Grove Memorial Airport, Mountain Grove, Missouri.
I am a veteran of the Air Force and was introduced to flying by an old friend. I had no idea my PPL was an option and made it work, even though it took a little while. I come from a big family whose parents taught me to work hard for my dreams – that I am capable of anything if I put my mind to it.
Ratings: Private Pilot 🙂
I have flown a Cessna 152, 150, 172. I have also flown a Luscombe and Globe Swift (but never taken off or landed these two since I do not have my tailwheel endorsement yet.)
Taildragger thoughts: The dream is to own my own taildragger and possibly airstrip one day. Big goals! Some of the coolest airplanes are taildraggers! The Piper Cub will always be a favorite along with Stearman’s, Wacoâ€™s, and all the other fun taildraggers. They all have something different to offer!
