Mar 2015 Lisa Buckner (Texas)
Lisa Buckner is based at 81D Flyin’ Tiger Field,Â Angleton, Texas.
I am a newly solo-ed Legend Cub student pilot, training under legendary Bruce Bohannon and his two grass strips.Â I decided to take to the skies after my boyfriend was tragically killed by an inattentive driver. “What do I want to do”, I was asked. Tears, many tears. “I want to learn to fly”. So here I am.
I didn’t know anything about planes but I did know after my first taxi in the tailwheel, that ALL of my concentration was going to be needed…and then some. Training, flying, the 75-minute drive each way for my lessons, LIFE in 3D, all helped me heal, grow, and gave back to me the AWE and JOY in life. The journey continues….
I have had the good fortune of meeting quite a few female pilots, many taildraggers. I am impressed by their energy and enthusiasm and so appreciate their encouragement. I was told about your organization by Bruce and am looking forward to becoming a member.
