Aug 2011 Kim Huntington (California)
Kim Huntington is based at KSMX, Santa Maria Public Airport/Capt G Allan Hancock Field,Â Santa Maria, California.
I have been flying taildraggers for over 30 years and other than float planes, they are just too much fun not to fly them. My husband and I converted his 1962 150 into a taildragger, but I just had to have my own. In 2009 an opportunity arose to purchase a Champ (my 6th 7 series), converted from a 7AC to a 7CCM w/the C90. This aircraft has history with my husband and was a 4 time award winner in the early 90s. In late 2010 we had to pull the engine (it was way overdue) and finished a bootcowl forward restoration in January of 2011.
We can be found on any weekend flying formation locally or to exotic and not-so exotic locations around the Central Coast of California.
