Olson Fenwick (Idaho)

Olson Fenwick is based at D28, Tanglefoot Seaplane Base, Cavanaugh Bay, Idaho.

From my first introductory flight in 1988 I was hooked! I still have my first plane we bought that year, a Lake Renegade.

My husband soon bought me a beautiful 450 Stearman for flying aerobatics.

Today, I enjoy flying the Back Country of Idaho. I am very proud to be both a lady seaplane and taildragger pilot.

We have Tanglefoot Seaplane Base on Priest Lake, just a walk away from the Cavanaugh Bay grass airstrip, 66S.

I don’t fly the Mallards but they are pretty! From Tanglefoot Seaplane Base Facebook page

Fly in and visit!

      Hi Ray (the handsome man in the photo with the Husky),
      As long as the air temp is above freezing I can fly the Lake off water until the bay freezes over. In the meantime I hope to have the Stearman up this winter. How ’bout you, skis on the Husky yet?
      Cheers, Olson

    Hi Olson,
    Could I get your email address? I don’t get on LLT or facebook as often as I’d like.
    I haven’t been to the Bird museum in Sagle but Sally has been there on several occasions. I’ll have to ask her if there is anything about mom there.

    I love Cavanaugh Bay. Washington Antique Airplane peoples went there twice on their biennial airplane tour.
