Update from Stephanie
“My RV-6 is very basic and turns 20 this year, with about 1300 hours on it, and it still looks and flies great.Â BTW, I’m building an amphibian – pic attached – also a taildragger.Â Hopefully it will fly this spring, and I hope to take it to Oshkosh and land in and camp at the lake.Â Won’t be doing the ARC this summer – it’s a pretty expensive proposition!Â Maybe in the next few years I’ll get a chance. Â Stephanie”

Stephanie Wells is from Colorado and is based at Rocky Mountain Metro Airport (KBJC).
I gotÂ your link from Gail Schipper, up in Longmont, CO.Â We definitely do have some lady taildragger pilots here in Colorado. Â I have an RV-6, a perfectly fast aerobatic sweet-flying airplane. (But I did not build it – I am the 4th owner). Â I have a total of about 850 tailwheel hours, including PIC in Luscombes (8A and 8E), Citabria, Decathlon, Scout, CE-170, Champ, Pawnee, Cassutt, Stephens Akro, and Smith Miniplane.Â Gotten a chance to fly more fun stuff like a Pitts and Stearman. Â Wish List: DC-3, Beaver, P-51.Â (sigh…)
RV lovers, eat your hearts out!

Hi Stephanie. You’re not too far away…what a relief. I feel lost in a sea of men up here. Not that there’s anything wrong with them, but I sure crave female companionship in flying sometimes. I have one good friend who will ride with me anytime she can (she’s a 6th grade science teacher), but that’s about it. I have a friend in Dubois, WY that has an RV6. Boy do I like to hop in with him for a ride!

Hey Stephanie how’s the amphib? If you need a copilot for ARC please give me a shout. Hope the skiing’s been good this year!

Great photos. Would love to come out and fly the amphib when you finish. Retirement surely suits you! Best of luck.
