Peggy Tucker (Louisiana)

Peggy Tucker is based at a private airstrip, 68LS, Myrtle Grove Airport, Waterproof, Louisiana across the levee of the Mississippi River.

The day I got my tailwheel endorsement in 2010 or 2011.

I am married to pilot hubby Doc Charles Tucker and we enjoy aviation together. 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, Tailwheel endorsement, sea and land

Aircraft flown: Cessna 150, 172 and 182, J3 Cub, Citabria, Stearman and AT6

Dream taildragger: P51, of course!

On a P51 ride I got to fly, loop and roll.

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.

Smoke on!
