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!

Help get Julie to AirVenture!!!

I just discovered that Julie Vessigault won’t be at OSH because she flat-out can’t afford to get there. Julie’s the special lady that drives cross country to airshows & flyins across America, washing aircraft to pay her way. Julie’s not a pilot but she LOVES taildraggers.... Read More »

Congratulations to our next 2016 Scholarship Winner!

Amazing things can happen when goodhearted aviatrixes are involved. I received a message a week ago that a lady taildragger pilot would like to make a donation to our LadiesLoveTaildraggers Scholarship Fund. A whopping $1500 donation! My heart nearly stopped. If it happened, we could send our next-i... Read More »

Guiding Force or Remarkable Coincidence?

Guiding Force or Remarkable Coincidence?

You decide. Was it a remarkable coincidence or a supernatural guiding force? It’s noon, the air is transitioning from ‘morning smooth’ to ‘afternoon thermals’ and I’m flying along at 2500′ on a solo cross-country. I’m flying my Rans S7, all 680 pounds ... Read More »

Dennis ForsterThis is kind of old post but planes aren't moving all that well and it still might be available... I was thinking Grand Forks, North Dakota but it could also be Grand Forks, B.C., you'll have to ask. Sent: September-28-15 Subject: Skybolt Hi there I have sold my home and I am moving to Kelowna this weekend. I just wanted to let you know that my new phone number will be 250-868-3633. The plane will remain hangared here in Grand Forks under the care of a pilot friend. I will be back and forth and can be here to show the Skybolt any time, if you are still interested in it. My email address will remain the same. Mary Relkov <relkov@gmail.com>

Oh no, how did this even happen? I just wanted to fly taildraggers! 6 Years ago I would choke if I had to introduce myself to even a small group. No one on earth was a worse public speaker and I preferred to go unnoticed. My family says I've self actualized, whatever that means. All I know is I just agreed to an AirVenture Announcer's stand Show Center interview Wednesday to talk about all you ladies. And for the 4th year LLT will be part of Thursday's Vintage in Review program. Crazy! ... See MoreSee Less

Judy BirchlerThanks for your encouragement everyone! Anne Scheer Wright, you are absolutely right, I'm surely not introverted. It's just that the darndest things can pop out of my mouth if I get flustered. It's ok though, I'm going to OSH to have a good time - and I will!
