May 2018 Sarah Moore (Oregon)
Sarah Moore is based atÂ 4S2,Â Ken Jernstedt Airfield, Hood River, Oregon.
I am a graphic designer by trade but an adventurer at heart. I hike as often as I can and plan vacations around remote adventures. After 10 years of sitting behind a computer I had a realization at the top of a mountain.Â I thought, â€œhow can I have this view everyday?â€ The next week, on Valentineâ€™s Day, I went to the local FBO and asked for a discovery flight. They took me up in a little Cessna, it was fun but when we got back I looked at a J3 Cub and decided that is how I wanted to learn! I came back the next day to start training with the goal of becoming a backcountry pilot. Iâ€™m still working towards my PPL,Â just soloed and working hard!
Ratings: Just soloed, Student Pilot
Aircraft flown: Piper J3, Piper Top cub
Dream taildragger: I donâ€™t know enough about them all, but I do love the J3 I soloed in.
Thoughts on taildragging: The taildraggers have been so fun to learn in. I think it will make me a better pilot in the end and get me one step closer to my back country goals!
