I was there. Came in as part of the flight of 4. Sorry to miss you
Sorry I missed you also. Nice little fly in
And nice plane that tootsie is
I was fortunate enough to buy my first taildragger, a Champ, with partners in the summer of 2019. A couple weeks ago, some friends and I formed a company and bought a T-6! Its pretty cold in Ohio, but it was totally worth bundling up to go flying today. Now to learn how to fly it...thank goodness my husband is a CFI! ... See MoreSee Less

Wow! A Champ to a T-6... what a change!
You are so Blessed!! 😎🌴
Awesome! You can do it! I started out in a J3 Cub. Within two years of getting my Private, I had soloed my T-6 and currently give rides in it. Good luck to you!

Congrats!! T-6s are the best!!
Wow!!! Someday i hope to have a radial taildragger 😊
I've got 45 minutes of dual in an SNJ in my log. Most fun I've ever had flying.
Have fun! It’s big and noisy, but remember, as my Harvard Instructor told me, ‘it’s just an aeroplane’!
ENJOY!!! Congrats! 😀
Congratulations. It is a big fat cub! Have fun!
I sent you a PM! 🙂 just a heads up!
Just putting some feelers out... Since you ladies are the very best resource ☺️
I'm getting my instructor ratings & it's been a dream of mine to 1. Get my own plane, and 2. Become really proficient with taildraggers. I was mulling over maybe getting one & leasing it back to my school for endorsements & spin training (or just doing it myself). This wouldn't probably happen for a couple years unless i come across something really special.
Is there an aircraft out there that would be good for this sort of thing? I'm not looking for an Extra or anything crazy, but if there's a good, sturdy little bugger out there that's spin-certified, I'd be really interested in it! I'm just not very familiar with what's out there.
Feel free to tell me this is a ridiculous idea. I'm just brainstorming & dreaming a little 🤣 any and all suggestions are welcome. Thank you!!!
PFA: one of the Archers i fly now, all prettied up for a video shoot ... See MoreSee Less

Citabria would be hard to beat for your goals. If you just want a fun economical taildragger for your self to enjoy then look into the Cessna 120/140’s.
A citabria can do both...great tailwheel trainer and aerobatic certified. Just be cautious with the wooden spar if your planning any acro beyond basic spin training. Some have been changed to metal spars but they cost more.
Super Decathlon or Citabria.
Citabria is pretty standard for tail wheel and spin training
I had owned a Cessna 140 and that's an awesome plane for both plus more economical!
+1 for Citabria. Bought mine (7KCAB) as a student pilot 16 years ago and still fly it today!
Careful on the lease back. Insurance will be a bear!!!! To keep my insurance down on my champ no pilot with less than 500 tailwheel can fly it. The insurance is still about 700 a year. Citabria or decathalon are 2 great ones. Depends on if you want to carry more people, build time or have a little bit of fun and carry one passenger
If you want your airplane taken care of like you’d take care of it, you’ll likely not be pleased with a leaseback. Get some experience and be a good instructor in a good airplane, that you take care of and know how it was flown prior to you jumping in it.
Bang for the buck would be a 7EC 90HP Champ. Had one for several years and used it for tailwheel endorsement training and a spin course as well as for CFI spin endorsement training and skiplane training. Have a Super Decathlon now which is perfect but more expensive. Left-Base doht kom
Citabria, and if you pull the power way back, it has decent range.
What Deanna said. They’re fun and easy to fly, and you get a decent useful load for the front pax.
It's been a long, long time, but I'm just popping in to say hi. I haven't flown my Supercub since Aug 2017, but I've been flying as AirCrew for the USCG Auxiliary, so at least I'm UP. I recently joined a local glider club, so hopefully that will get me going again. I'm at KARB, so call me if you're in the area! ... See MoreSee Less

💕 Hi Anne Scheer Wright , I miss you and hope to see you flying your awesome bird again. If you choose not, I hope you remember I have first right on your Supercub. We can share it 50)50 or I'll buy it 100%. I'm in love with it and hope you remember me and our fun flying together!
Hi Anne. Coming to FL anytime soon?

I’ll try and help
Lisa Allen also does this
Yes, send me a message.
I was a pilot/biologist for FWS, msg me if you want to know more about the profession.
I was until I lost my medical.
Talk to Lisa Allen
All my buddies said I didn't have a brain to do that work... haven't done it for awhile but I may remember something useful (PBY-5A, Grumman S2F, Douglas A-26, Firecat and CL-215) ~ pick away! 🙂
I want to take a second to express my gratitude. My family and I have simply been overwhelmed by the love, support, and sheer kindness shown to my brother. Thanks to your generosity, he has received an estimated 200-300 cards, and around 100 packages. At present moment, Matt and my parents are still trying to open everything. Matt was certainly surprised! I have never seen such happiness and excitement on his face. Matt may have had a crappy 2020, but thanks to the kindness of so many strangers, 2021 was just made for him.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who took the time out of their day to send Matt a little something. We can’t begin to tell you how much it means to all of us. Thank you. ❤️

That school is in WA and I have long wanted to try it out but I am not super agile. My short, fat self has enough trouble climbing through planes sitting on the ground. 😉 Looks like a blast though!
I had a trip booked to do that last summer but had to cancel due to the pandemic. I hope to reschedule for this sumner!
So cool! I've always wondered how people learn to do this, didn't know there was a class 😅 I'm not brave enough for this personally but this is badass!
Kayla Jane Fairchild
Whew, I also skydive and have gone out a balloon and a helicopter, too, and I still can’t bring myself to stomach wing walking! You are a strong, strong woman! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
I was asked to do that in my early 20s... ummmmm.... no, not for me. 😝😂
That’s so badass!!!!
My legs are going numb just looking at this😅. Great job!
Yeah, that’s a big ‘ol nope from me..
The Masons are a pretty cool.aviation family. I wish I would have logged all my wing walks thus far .ive been at it for 17 years so that's a lot of wing walks! Glad you got to experience it 🙌
I've always wanted to do that! What an awesome experience!
Always wanted to do that! Good for you.
I've NEVER wanted ti
To do this But admire you for the adventure
So amazing looking but I’m a chicken
I held my breath the hold time eat hi g that video! Amazing and whew!
