Aug 2016 Recruiting Lady Taildragger Pilots!!
Breathtaking, exciting and adventurous all describe it. This fast moving & oh-so-fun video from Kim Huntington is one I guarantee will get you as excited about flying the backcountry as it did me! Yes, you can have this much fun in a Champ! Kim is flying herÂ 1946 Aeronca L16B replica “Jimmy” with a video camera mounted inside — and getting some spectacular footage. Thank you Kim!
“I heard a piece of music on TV and decided it would be perfect for recruiting women tailwheel pilots. All videos were shot by me from my Champ. The camera is a Contour Roam 2 using a suction cup mount in the upper left area of the windshield.
Most of the landings are on The central coast of California, in the Santa Maria Valley area. The blind landing into the sun is Lake Hogan up in the Gold Country region of the state. Some of the private airport landings are also in the Gold Country.
My husband and I have been “off roading” for about 4 years, and even tho it wasn’t an off-road trip, we flew the Champ and my husband’s Sport Cub to Kalispell, MT in June. 2400+ sm in a Champ!
Me- I’m an ATP ASMEL, Commercial ASMES/glider, CFII-MEI and an A& P.
I would hope that the video would inspire more women to fly and fly tailwheels and love that LLT continues to grow.” Â Â Kim
