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!

Texas, we love you!  The 2016 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas fly-in is history now.

‘Awesome on steroids’ is the word on today’s LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas fly-in! An upbeat comment like that usually doesn’t jive with 500 foot a.m. ceilings or the fact that we had to nix our fly-out poker run, but the crappy flying weather turned out to be a blessing in di... Read More »

Hello LadiesLoveTaildraggers!

I would like to invite you and your friends to the Texas Chapter, Antique Airplane Association’s 54th annual fly-in, October 7 and 8 at Gainesville Municipal Airport (KGLE).

We are working hard to make 2016 a great fly-in for all and encourage you to attend and enjoy a day or two with us. Last year we had over 160 aircraft fly in and my goal is to exceed 200 this year.

I am reaching to war birds, antiques, EAA, enthusiasts, type clubs, museums, our youth, veterans, military, etc…in an attempt to create a fun fly-in for all.

I know it is a lot to ask to have you fly aircraft in but we need as many as we can get.

If you cannot make it -- but know someone that may be interested, please feel free to forward my information along.

Let’s work together to keep these airplanes flying!

Very best regards,
Joel Meanor
