Feb 2012 Judy Phelps (California)
Judy Phelps is based at KSZP,Â Santa Paula Airport, Santa Paula, California.
I am the co-owner of CP Aviation, a flight school located in Santa Paula California. I am a CFII and specialize in Tailwheel and Emergency Maneuver Training.
My career in aviation began while working at the local airport restaurant where I met my husband Clay Phelps who owned the flight school next door. This was the beginning of an amazing journey and a life changing experience.
In 1999 I earned my Private Pilot Certificate and in 2003 I became a Flight Instructor.
I own a variety of taildraggers starting with my favorite a Pitts S2B. In August of 2011 I flew my first airshow, something I thought I would never do. I also fly Decathlonâ€™s, Citabriaâ€™s and a Cessna 180.
Itâ€™s official, I am now a part of Ladies Love Taildraggers!
