Sep 2012 Kerry Conner (New Zealand)
Kerry Conner is based atÂ NZMS,Â Masterton/Hood Airport, Masterton, New Zealand.
Hello,Â I am from New Zealand and own a flight training organisation specialising in taildragger training.Â The only aircraft I have for training ab-initio through to CPL are taildraggers. Available on-line we have a Piper Cub (100hp) no flaps, a Piper Pacer (160hp, 4 seat), a Cessna 180 and a Tiger Moth.
I have over 3500 hours in taildraggers and love flying and teaching in them. Taildragger aircraft I have ratings in are all those mentioned above plus The Cessna 150 taildragger, Cessna185, Maule, De Havilland Chipmunk, Gardan GY-20, Jodell D11, Thatcher CX4, Percival Piston Provost, North American Harvard, World War I aircraft such as the Pfalz DIII, Fokker DR-1, Airco DH 5, Fokker DVII, and the SE5a. I have also flown a J3 Cub, DH90, Auster, Cessna Bird dog, Beech Staggerwing and the Thorpe T18. I have been flying since 1984 and have over 7500 total hours.
I live and work out of a town in New Zealand called Masterton, which is home to “The Vintage Aviator Collection” of WWI aircraft, which I am very privileged to be a part of as a pilot and get to fly their unique aircraft in airshows.
I am also a member of the NZ Warbirds Assn, NZ Women in Aviation, AOPA and the NZ C180/185 group.Â
If anyone wants to come to NZ for a holiday and needs a taildragger fix, please come and see me, it would be great to fly with other women who love taildraggers. Â Find me atÂ http://www.ace-aviation.co.nz/
