I solo’d in an Aeronca Champion the early 80’s but didn’t finish my license until many years later. I currently fly a Grumman Traveler out of TX36, a private fly-in community in central TX. Once a summer my husband gives me a treat, some time in a T6 in Florida. I doubt they will let me solo but at least I get to fly “big iron”.

Another pilot on our strip just completed building an RV8, and said I could fly with him, while my husband insists we need a Cessna 195. So, more taildraggers are in my future.

I love taildraggers (and am still in the group who hasn’t yet) because I feel they have made me a better pilot. The check pilot said he could tell I had flown taildraggers when he flew with me for my PPL.

      Hi MaryAnn,
      You introduced me to the site; I was following your flights on your Facebook page and you referenced taildraggers. But, yup, it is a small world, so I hope to see you soon!

      Oh yes indeed! Quite a handful, 450HP makes for exciting accelerated stall training. 😀
