Priscilla Repton is based atÂ 6K5,Â Sisters Eagle Air Airport, Sisters, Oregon.
I started having an interest in flying about a year ago. I told my husband I wanted to learn to fly and he thought it was a great idea. So, we decided a Taildragger would be the best plane to learn in because it would be the hardest and if I had to fly anything else it would make it easier. I also love the look of taildragger planes. I love polished planes. We used to own a Decathalon but I never had a desire to fly aerobatics because I got really ill. From that experience I didn’t think I could fly a plane.
Brian Landsburgh taught my husband to fly tailwheel so he said “Talk to Brian”. So, I did. He said he could fix that illness thing and here we go. I am able to fly longer and longer without feeling ill. I am really enjoying it and want to continue on.
As I am over 40 (not by much) they say it is harder to learn but… I will prevail! This is too much fun not to….
