Hi! Iâ€™m Sidney. I started learning to fly in my Dadâ€™s Cessna 195 and was hooked!! Iâ€™m currently at a regional airline but have done all sorts of flying. (Instructing, banner-tow, sky-dive, and air tours at the Grand Canyon) However, hopping in my Dad’s 195 is still my favorite!!

Dream taildragger: Cessna 195, but would love to fly the DC-3!!
Thoughts on taildragging: Where do I begin?!? I guess Iâ€™m partial because that is what I learned in, but there are also just so many amazing taildraggers. Iâ€™m a sucker for older birds, which a lot of taildraggers are, so I guess I love the history behind a lot of them.
They also make for great pilots! They donâ€™t give you a choice and the stick and rudder skills you develop are priceless.
