Sandy Newfang, Cessna 150 Aerobat

Sandy Newfang and Cessna 150 Aerobat taildragger conversion.

I’ve been a private pilot since 2003 and earned my seaplane rating in April 2010.  I’m relatively new to dragging my tail.  My husband & I have a nosedragger and a taildragger; our taildragger “Sassy” is a Cessna A150M with the Bush conversion. We also own and fly a Cessna 150D (nose dragger) “LuluBelle”.  I grew up with taildraggers.  My father was a habitual builder of experimental aircraft.  It was gyrocopters in my early childhood,  fixed wing ultralights in my teens, and eventually RV series aircraft.  He currently has an RV4 and RV8. Looking forward to getting to know the group!

You may remember Sandy from the “I’m just a Girl!” video posted last year.  Sandy and Catherine Cavagnaro created this incredibly funny video spoof on women pilots. If you haven’t seen it yet don’t miss it!! And by the way, we need you on Ladies Love Taildraggers Catherine!!

    Hi Sandy!
    I lived in Land O Lakes from 1992-2007 and flew my Cessna 120 out of Pilot Country. I live in Oregon now and my husband and I fly our Interstate Cadet. Glad to find this site and find you. We still have property right on 54 near Tampa North and still come to Florida at least once a year. Hope to meet you sometime!
