Jun 2019 Terri Minter (Oregon)
Terri Minter is based at Starks Twin Oaks Airport, 7S3, near Hillsboro, Oregon. Check out this update and the new bird Terri’s flying!
I’ve owned four airplanes, all of which have been Cessna taildraggers. My current airplane is a Cessna 170B, customized for camping.
Ratings: PPL, High Performance
Aircraft flown: Cessna 120, Cessna 140, Cessna 170B
Dream taildragger: My current airplane is a dream to me, my C170B. I love it!
Thoughts on taildragging: I appreciate the versatility of being able to land on pavement, a farmer’s field or a gravel bar.

“June 14, 2013: Today I earned my TW endorsement! Yahoo… A few weeks ago I purchased my first airplane. My 1946 Cessna 120 was flown home with a friend of mine from Phoenix. It was the most memorable vacation of my life. It was so exciting seeing fantastic scenery and learning more about cross-country flying. I simply can’t stop smiling.”
“Thanks to my dear friend for helping me find just the right taildragger and flying us home safe, all while having a wonderful time together. I’m looking forward to discovering grass strips, suitable for my little C85 hp bird, for camping and picnics!”
