New pictures from Tia!!
Tia Robertson is based atÂ 5GA4,Â Air Acres Airport,Â Woodstock, Georgia.
I earned my private pilot license in a Luscombe 8E March 8th 1981. A few days later the Luscombe and I were on our way to the Sun-N-Fun Fly-in! I continued to build time and add an instrument & multi-engine rating, commercial, CFI and a few years later was flying Jetstreams for a commuter in Atlanta. A few more years and hours and I was hired by Eastern Airlines.
I went out on strike in 1989 and was later hired by United Airlines where I progressed from the engineers seat of a 727 to the right seat of a 737-200 then 757 and 767. In 2001 I took an early retirement to spend more time with my young family. I was a 737-500 Captain at the time. My husband and I have a Cessna 195 that we have had for 16 years and a Taylorcraft that has been with us for 29 years.
I love taildraggers because they just feel right! I wish I could make it up to the Dayton Fly-in but my youngest will be going off to college next week and I have much to do!
From Judy: I left a note on this beautiful 195 at Oshkosh after I heard a woman had flown it in. You know I’d give my eye teeth for a beautiful 195! When I heard it belonged to a woman it made my day. Â OK, she shares it with her husband but all the better…. he’s got to be one happy guy. They’ve got a 195 and his wife loves to fly it!! Unfortunately, Tia left me a message they were heading out before I could meet her but she did register on Ladies Love Taildraggers. Thanks Tia!
