Aug 2012 Shauna Burrow (California)
Shauna Burrow is based at KFOT,Â Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, California.
I started flying in 1990 (Nose wheel Mooney M20C) and also had a fly-in B&B for 12 years. Â During those year I had a guest stay with us who had an RV. Â He took me flying, Â I loved it. Â I loved the rate of climb, I loved the stick and made up my mind I would own an RV. Â My dream of having an RV never changed, but lots of things in my life changed.
Finally my opportunity struck! Â An RV was up for sale in my area, in my price range but it was a taildragger. Â So I bought it! Â Then I had to learn tailwheel. Â I drove up to Creswell, Oregon for many weekends flying with Dorothy Schick. Â Finally I got it, then finished up in Eureka with Ann Elsbach in my RV9! Â I have been flying the RV9 for 3 years. Â It makes my trips to the Sierra Mts very enjoyable.
