Our Mission

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. We introduce ladies to aviation and encourage women (and men) to join the wonderful world of conventional aircraft!

I just finished the book ‘A Hunger for the Sky’ by Sparky Barnes Sargent and totally enjoyed it. The book is a compilation of 9 women pilots’ personal stories made all the more interesting to me because several are LadiesLoveTaildraggers members. One of the women Sparky writes abou... Read More »

Elizabeth Reese: Mack Mesa Airport, Colorado, May 20-22, 2016

News from Elizabeth Reese. Hi! Just came to the realization that I never posted an update I said I would after my (private pilot) check ride back in 2012! It went well, although I can’t say it went smoothly! There was bumpy air, we had malfunctioning headsets so it was difficult to hear one an... Read More »

Enjoy the Journey …

Hey people, have you seen a LadiesLoveTaildraggers Fly-in video?!! The year is 2013 and, same as ALL of our fly-ins, the good weather is sometimes punctuated by periods of crappy weather. Funny thing though, those that fly, sit and wait out the weather, and make their way to our fly-ins have a great... Read More »

Leanne PowersLOL--I'm just about to do my checkride--in an airplane (not mine) that's been sprouting one ugly MX issue after another, so I'm trying to be the picture of a super-conservative pilot. I didn't even know that I wanted to do stuff like acro until I started flying my plane--it's been teaching me WAY better fundamental stick/rudder skills, and the by-product is you learn how much fun you can have in a little airplane once you REALLY start to fly it. Now I just want to learn more...but I might also need a bit more horsepower to get there. 😉

I'm just curious if someone could give me an idea of how much a pair of original 1946 Luscombe 8A wheel pants would be worth??? ... See MoreSee Less

Cathy White Page and Ross Wood like this

Scott SewellIf they are like new in box l would think at least $500.00 for the pair. A friend bought some new ones for his Cessna 195 and paid about $1,000.00 and was happy to get them. But the price always comes down to how bad do you want them, or how little you are willing to take ...

Cathy White PageI think the originals are a little rare, but they look soooo much better that the fiberglass ones.

I'm no longer a lurking tricycle pilot longing for a tail wheel to fly. My new bird has come home to roost. A little training to refresh my endorsement and off I go. ... See MoreSee Less
