Nov 2010 Misty Allsup (Oklahoma)
Misty Allsup is based at Antlers MunicipalÂ Airport (80F), Antlers, Oklahoma and is a student pilot who owns a Champ.
Misty named her new Champ “Marilynn”!
First of all, I just didn’t like flying. Â I couldn’t get used to the feel of banking and I had a bad case of getdownitis so I first needed to find a plane that I simply liked so much that I would give flying a chance.
Last year, my husband bought me a 1959 Aeronca 7FC, that had been converted to a conventional gear, as my 30th birthday present. Â I named her Marilynn, and she’s so special to me. Â I love my little Champ!
My fear of flying didn’t instantly go away with Marilynn’s arrival so it’s been a slow process but such an awesome journey.
“Tailwheels are the only way to go!”
My husband and I also own a Waco UPF7, a Micco SP26, and a Piper Seneca II, and have our own hanger and grass strip in SE Oklahoma. Â We’d love to have ‘ya so drop a line for coordinates.
Judy, love your website, especially since so many of the ladies have Champs. With my husband’s stable of planes, everyone overlooks my poor little Champ so I like to see them fully appreciated!
