Mar 2012 Valerie Thal-Slocum (Tennessee)
Valerie Thal-Slocum is based atÂ 4TN3, Hawks Nest Airport, Moscow, Tennessee.
I am an MD 11 Captain for FedEx. I grew up flying taildraggers, Â Beech 18’s, DC-3’s, and I own a Cessna 195. My husband, Jim is also a taildragger pilot and he recently soled our two daughters, Holly (age 15) and Heather (age 14) in a 2-26 glider. It is kinda a taildragger!
I love networking and encouraging young aviators. I am a world class Skydiver with numerous World Records. Guess I just like the air!
Check out http://bentprop.org/. It is a group that I am part of that travels to the South Pacific and searches for WWII airmen and their aircraft. Â We have a documentary, last Flight Home, about our efforts!
