May 2017 Tina Hunter (South Africa)
Tina Hunter is based atÂ FAKR,Â Krugersdorp Airport, Krugersdorp, Gauteng, South Africa.
I have wanted to get my license since I was a teenager. I got my PPL in August 2016 at age 37 in a C172. I am currently converting to tailwheel on a Kitplanes Safari that was built by my husband.
We like to do air races that take us to unusual places. Last year we won the beginner category at Race 4 Rhinos in Botswana.
Ratings: PPL,Â Paraglider Pilot
Aircraft flown: Cessna 172,Â Cessna 150,Â Kitplanes Safari
Favorite Taildragger: Vintage Cessna180
Taildraggers are really sexy aeroplanes and are extremely fun to fly. My flying, especially landings, have improved so much after my tailwheel training.
