Patricia Burch is based at KJDD,Wood County Airport,Â Mineola/Quitman, Texas.
I am 67 years young. I’ve been flying since I was 16. Nobody else in my family had ever had any exposure to aviation until I “lost my mind” and started flying. I am an ATP single & multi engine land, Commercial SES & rotorcraft/helicopter. Flight instructor ASMEL, Instrument, Seaplane and helicopter.
I own East Texas Flying Service Inc at KJDD (Wood county Airport-Mineola, TX) a full service FBO & maintenance facility. I have over 10,000 hours in all sorts of airplanes & helicopters. I even ferried a few German Airforce Dorniers from Germany through Sweden, across the North Atlantic and on down to the Bahamas.
I have flown taildraggers since 1980. I own a Piper PA-16 with 150 HP but am currently fitting it with floats.
