Judy Johnson (Washington)

Judy Johnson is based at Arlington Municipal Airport (KAWO), Arlington, Washington and flies a Top Cub.

It is SO nice to hear about this group!

I grew up in the midwest (would have been an easier flight to the LLT flyin in Ohio from there!) but have been in Washington since about 1987. Took my first 40 hours or so of flight training in a J-3 Cub, finished my private ticket in a Cessna in 2008 and got my tailwheel endorsement last summer, flying a Top Cub (new version of the old Supercub with all the Alaska mods built in). My husband got his license the year before I did.

Farthest east it has been is Alexandria, Minnesota but it would be so great to get back there and meet you all!  I have lots of lady pilot friends but most fly tricycle gear planes and think I am crazy.  (They are correct.)  I will definitely spread the word out here.

Take care and Happy New Year!

    Judy,
    Come to Idaho this summer with the “baby” and check out the fun and informative Woman Wise Airmanship Adventure on LLT home page or on my own site http://www.mindelevations.com. You would fit right in with your great plane. I fly a scout, live in McCall Idaho, and have gone to heaven after our move from Colorado for the amazing backcountry aviation out here. Camping if FREE. Limited lodging and even teepees (nice ones) across street. See if you can attend. Register on this site or mine. Hope to see you…

    Thanks, Anne! So happy to find a group of Gals who love what I love! The freedom is great and especially in STOL aircraft like supercubs. The big tires are great, but you look hard for grass runways when they are on. I’m learning so we have 26″ goodyears on now, in the pic are 31″ bushwheels.

    Welcome to LLT, Judy! I think you win the prize for “Biggest Tires” on this site – I’ve only got 8.50s on my Supercub, but they do the job for me.
