Jul 2018 Peggy Tucker (Louisiana)
Peggy Tucker is based at a private airstrip, 68LS,Â Myrtle Grove Airport,Â Waterproof, LouisianaÂ across the levee of the Mississippi River.
I am married to pilot hubby Doc Charles Tucker and we enjoy aviation together.Â I’ve been a pilot for 7 years, living in Waterproof, LA, and we own a Texan AT6F, Stearman biplane and a Cessna Skylane.
Ratings: Private pilot,Â Tailwheel endorsement,Â sea and land
Aircraft flown: Cessna 150, 172 and 182, J3 Cub, Citabria, Stearman and AT6
Dream taildragger: P51, of course!
Thoughts on taildragging: My husband bought our 450 Stearman in 2007 and sparked my wanting to “learn to land it” which pushed me into getting my pilot license. This started my love for taildraggers. I got my tailwheel endorsement in a Citabria and have time in a 200 Stearman and J3 Cub.
