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”.

Me and Lil Red at the Women’s Air Race Classic start in Ft. Myers, FL.


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. 😀
