Lady Taildragger pilots; we come in all sizes at OSH. I had a little fun hanging out with Mennonite Highlander pilot, Ivy, and Howard DGA pilot Trish Volker in the Vintage area this morning. That’s because Ray Johnson featured lady pilots in today’s Vintage in Re... Read More »

The WIA breakfast and group lady pilot photo came off without a hitch this morning. We packed the EAA nature center and took over Boeing Square, a beautiful thing. Judy, Lynn & Brenda Hey, Adina’s here ! What? Julie’s here and not in warbirds! It was great to... Read More »
To encourage women everywhere to have fun flying taildraggers!
This blog isn’t about ratings, hours in the logbook or owning an award winning airplane. It is about flying taildraggers just for the fun of it, introducing more women to aviation and encouraging women (and men) to join the wonderful world of conventional aircraft! The only requirement is having recorded time flying a tailwheel aircraft. We love student pilots too!
It was an absolutely spectacular 1st day at OSH. There are lady taildragger pilots popping up all over the place! One at a time, and sometimes in groups, the LadiesLoveTaildraggers gals are at AirVenture. They’re even here in art form on airplane cowls, fuselages & tails. If you’re coming, don’t even think about wearing the baby blue high heels “Crazy Woman” is wearing. You’ll be walking MILES so pack your most comfy sandals or tennis shoes and get here soon! I had a huge treat today when I got a call fro... Read More »
This may well be the most amazing thing about AirVenture, whether you are flying in, listening on the ground at OSH or just relaxing in your easy chair at home. KOSH Fisk VFR Approach KOSH South Tower (Rwy 18/36) KOSH North Tower (Rwy 9/27) Read More »
AirVenture officially begins tomorrow and that means right now this place is crawling with pilots, vendors, volunteers and families. We ran across this camping family who has attended OSH for over 30 years, just like so many of us. I don’t have the badges and buttons to prove I was here, but believe me, I’m not a newbie. This is one week of fun and excitement I always look forward to! We bumped into lady taildragger pilot Victoria Holt from Texas this afternoon and had a great time hanging out with her during one of today’s ra... Read More »
“Welcome to the show!” was our greeting to OSH this afternoon by the Fiske controllers. We rocked our wings and followed the tracks to 27 and were tickled to land on the green dot. Kate and I flew in today but oh man, it was no simple feat. We skirted thunderstorms early in the day and landed at White Co Airport to sit it out and refuel. We made our way to our next refuel stop, East Troy. One little problem though, I left my billfold back at White Co. Airport! OMG. No money, no credit cards, not even a pilot’s license or drive...

Who: Kate & Judy What: A one week adventure at the Mecca of aviation Where: AirVenture a.k.a. OSH Well, we beat the thunderstorms out of Indy by less than an hour but had to land at White Co to wait it out. It’s clearing up fast so we’ll be on our way again soon! Air tractor crop dusters all over the place here in corn country! Everyone fly safe. Hope to see you there! Read More »
Thank you to Stephanie Stephenson for sending an update. We love to get pretty new pictures of planes, people and more! Stephanie tells me she not only has relocated to an airport community, Kelly Airpark, CO15, Elbert, Colorado, she’s also the proud parent of a beautiful J-3 Cub too. With AirVenture 2014 upon us, you may remember Stephanie was one of two ladies we featured at last year’s Vintage In Review Program. OSH was all about radials in 2013, and Stephanie did a beautiful job showing off her gorgeous C195. Stephanie and her... Read More »
Tammie Searles is based at T82, Gillespie County Airport, Fredericksburg, Texas. “Me holding the keys to my new plane!” I just moved to Texas (T82) from Cali (E16). Next week my husband and I are flying (commercially) to SJC to jump in our own airplanes and fly them back here to Texas. I’m excited to fly my Citabria N1926G that far. It will be the longest cross-country for me. Ever! Thanks! Tammie Read More »
