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, 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!

OSH: The crowds are arriving.

OSH: The crowds are arriving.

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 »

We’re HERE!

We’re HERE!

“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...

Stephanie Stephenson’s new bird AND new digs

Stephanie Stephenson’s new bird AND new digs

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 »

Just seeing other women having fun flying taildraggers is a great way to promote what we love. Please send your pictures and stories to ladytaildraggers@gmail.com for posting. Read More »

Rudder Cable Incident, Rans S-7

Rudder Cable Incident, Rans S-7

If you’re on Facebook, you may already know about my incident while attempting to depart my airport yesterday evening. I want to thank all my Facebook friends for your comments, especially your suggestions and recommendations. It’s pretty amazing that I can have a problem, post pictures on Facebook and have real time, immediate, knowledgeable and useful information just that fast. You all are amazing. For those that don’t know, I decided to do a solo, evening flight after dinner last night and, if I was lucky, enjoy a nice vie... Read More »
