WOW …. I received the following email from our very own lady taildragger pilot, Sneha Harish, formerly based in South Africa. Â If you’ve frequented LadiesLoveTaildraggers for a while, you’ll surely remember Sneha because she LOVES to fly, loves to instruct in Bushbabys, bubbles over with excitement in her flying adventure updates, and happens to be one beautiful little lady.
Here’s Sneha’s email – along with some great pictures – and it’s one AMAZING story. Keep reading, but I should tell you that I only know “Howard” through this blog and haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him or Sneha – yet! Judy
“I am writing to tell you once more what an absolutely wonderful job you have done with the website! I have my own little selfish reason in saying so this time around though! I am now a charter pilot and CFI in Uganda, East Africa. And you will never guess how I found this job! Or how the job found me! One of your acquaintances/friends, Howard Davenport (and his girlfriend and now my colleague, Sanae Ishitani) found me through Ladies Love Taildraggers! 🙂
This is a job I hadn’t applied for even! He just found me on the site, wrote to me saying he’d like me to fly for them, I packed my bags, left South Africa and here I am!
How amazing is that?! It’s been 2 months now and I am thoroughly enjoying it! We fly out of Kajjansi Airfield which is on the shores of gorgeous Lake Victoria. LOTS of flying and it’s a beautiful country!
Howard flies a Great Lakes and a Bucker (upside down mostly!) and those are the only taildraggers here. We are looking forward to the arrival of a Chipmunk in the near future.
Howard has a little message for you. He said he wants me to quote him in this exact fashion. ‘Judy, thanks to your website I found a darn good pilot to fly for us here!’
A BIG thank you from me too, Judy! I got to make it to the USA soon to fly with you and the rest of the fabulous women out there!
Here’s to lots of time in the big blue yonder!”
