Sue Schaffer is based at KMYL,Â McCall Municipal Airport, McCall, Idaho and sent this update. Congratulations, Sue, on passing your private pilot written exam AND your new Scout, all decked out and ready for the backcountry!
Been married to a pilot for 33 years, and recently he got interested in back country flying. Â Knowing that I couldn’t even sit on the back of a motorcycle, I knew I would have to do something about this flying thing, and I wondered if I could really learn to fly.
We winter in Arizona and the initial thought was to take some back seat time in a cub and get used to it. After a half hour flight, I knew I was signing up for the whole deal. Since we are interested in taildraggers, I decided to go that route for my private certificate. Happy to say that I solo’d one day before my 52nd birthday in a Supercub on Friday, April 12th.
Loved seeing all the smiles on the women on this website and thought I’d join…but really, I think I was just taking a break from studying for the written!
