Sep 2012 T. Determan (Washington & Minnesota)
T. Determan flies out of Â KYKM, McAllister Field, Yakima, Washington.
I first learned to fly taildraggers with Gus Pooler. He’d always ask me what the ball was doing… because I never had it centered. After many patient hours of his tutelage, I was ready to fly!
Most of my taildragger experience is in Citabrias and Decathlons.
My favorite flights are with my Mom, she has such an appreciation for the beautiful scenery around the Yakima Valley, and for cloud formations.
I live in Minnesota, so I get to fly when I visit my Mom & Dad in YKM.
