Hi! My name’s Laura and I’m 20 years old, studying Information Systems at McGill University, and I love Taildraggers! I have been flying with my dad since I was young but only became seriously interested in flying when I saw my first SuperCub. After my first flight in a Cub with the doors open, cruising over Hampton Beach at just a few thousand feet, I knew taildraggers were for me. A few calls later, I began flying lessons in a yellow Champ in a small grass field. A few months later, my family invested in a beautiful Citabria in which I continued to train. I am so happy to say that I got my private pilots license and tailwheel endorsement on August 25th of this year!
Flying is empowering because I know that I am in complete control, how the airplane flies is a direct result of my actions. Getting my license has been a huge confidence builder and I hope to encourage other women to take flight!
I have motivated my brother and father to get their tailwheel endorsements! 🙂 Before flying, I was a synchronized ice skater of seven years. I also love hiking, rollerblading, kiteboarding, and exploring.
