I started flying in 1974 at Islip Airport, Long Island, New York. Since that time I have had a great time flying and over the years earned Commercial SEL, SES, (Instrument) MEL, (Instrument) Glider, Instructors license and ground instructor. Also ground school for DC8 flight engineer. Passed with a 98%, higher than a friend of mine who worked for Pan American World Airlines for years, and always a personal joke between us, getting a score 11 more than him.

I am a Life Member of the 99s International Organization of Women Pilots since 1976 and was awarded the Amelia Earhart Scholarship for my Multi Engine rating in 1983.

Recently purchased a 1940 J-3 Cub and my friend Lynn O’Donnell signed me off on my tailwheel endorsement in N30937. Lynn taught in J-3’s at Williamsport, Pa where the Cubs were manufactured and recently retired from United Airlines as a 767 Captain.

I’ve owned a 1976 Grumman Tiger, N74359, since February 9,1979 (only owned by a woman).

Now my Tiger has a Cub!

Currently I am in real estate sales at the Premier Residential Airpark, Spruce Creek Fly-In, Daytona Beach, Florida (east coast of Florida) with Spruce Creek Fly-In Realty. Would love to share information about where we are or just take a look at for the fun of it. Where can you sit or show property as airplanes taxi by your window as you work.

I would love to share experiences with other Lady Taildragger Pilots. We are so fortunate to be able to fly.

Pat & Skybolt

The very best to all.
