Which are Private Grass Strips? Which aren’t strips at all?

Which are Private Grass Strips? Which aren’t strips at all?

I flew the Boydster (a.k.a. my husband Boyd) on an aerial adventure around central Illinois recently. We were in my Decathlon, just a few months new to me but not a spring chicken at a 1973 model. We had a fun day and were totally into it. If you fly across the central Indiana state-line westbound i... Read More »

well, tell us about it 🙂

On the first day of.banner tow, my pilot said to me.......

Hello Ladies, I am looking to finally get into a taildragger as an owner, and am looking for opportunities in a partnership. I live in The Woodlands, TX, am a professional pilot and CFI, and began my career as a conventional gear instructor. Wanted to find out if any of you ladies, or any of your friends, would entertain something like this. It would be cool to partner with another female. If the right opportunity presents itself, it would be great way to share the cost of aircraft ownership. I am closest to CXO and DWH, but Dan Jones Int’l is a cool venue as well.

If you are interested in sharing expenses on your airplane with another airplane nut, let me know. If you have wanted to get into an airplane but didn’t want to handle the financial burden yourself, I have a lead on a PA12 with an O-320 150 hp that I have personally flown, she’s a great bird and for sale now. If you have two kiddos, she’s a 3-seat airplane. I can help with a checkout in the airplane to get you up to speed. PM me if you or someone you know is interested. You can read my profile for more info about me. Cheers!

We are now the proud owners of this beautiful Stinson. Now I can finally finish my training that I started almost ten years ago. Hubby says I might as well get my license in a classic tail dragger. Good thing he's a patient man because he's the one who gets to train me. ... See MoreSee Less

One of my favorite planes. Had a 108-2. N8000K, you'll love flying it!

A great classic ! I have always wanted either A Luscombe, or a Taylorcraft. I wound up with the latter.

Congratulations

Congratulations. The Stinson is an easy forgiving airplane

Congrats!!! Post your adventures!
