Oct 2015 New Taildragger Endorsement: Gail Stillings Burch (Florida)
I did it….I took two days and drove to Hartford, Wisconsin and met up with Steve Krog from Cub Air. I spent 3.8 hours in the air in his cub and got my endorsement.
He taught me so much and made it so much fun. I did three point landings on the turf, on the paved and even on the taxiway. I followed those with wheel landings, then crosswind landings on one wheel, then emergency landings, and slip to landing and short field, soft field and even take offs diagonally across the runway.
All the while he sat in the back seat and chuckled “away we go”…..what a blast….he taught me how to prop start and kept me in the front seat to ready myself for the Luscombe.
Luscombe N519SB (Sassy Brat) or Stillings Burch (the 1946 Luscombe my son and his wife and I bought, currently being restored by the great crew at Ormond Aircraft) should be in the air by Christmas.
