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 »

LLT pilots are the coolest ladies on the planet!

Thomas Michael EdmondsonKayleigh Bordner - Your photo just gave me a great idea! The "Jump for LLT" challenge I put our there a few weeks back is taking off, you've proven it. I just started my business as Judy Birchler shared with LLT. I will take anyone's "Jumping for LLT" (or your favorite photo with your plane) and convert it into digital artwork and print on gallery wrapped canvas and ship to your home, ready to hang on your walls. I WILL DONATE 10% OF EVERY SALE FROM LLT MEMBERS BACK INTO LLT. I'll write Judy Birchler a check to put back into the LLT organization. WIN-WIN situation! Here is your photo as a digital watercolor on textured paper. Once printed on canvas this pops! and people think it is the real deal! See my other samples at www.facebook.com/photosintoartwork

I want everyone coming to the flyin to have a great time. If you'd have an even better time helping out, I could use help...
#1 Photographer. Someone to shoot posed and unposed photos & videos each day.
#2 Poker Run coordinator at KSLR. Lupita Wisener did a great job picking the airports, coordinating people at each and organizing our lunch stop. Bill Tracy is delivering cards to all the airports. We need someone at KSLR to direct the poker run, tally the cards and determine winner.

Not to stir up things again, BUT....
When I viewed this photo and thought of that Sun-N-Fun "ladies event" posting (just this short of being a Tupperware party), and I know how upset I was AND some of LLT members, I just HAD to post this bad-boy photo that SAYS IT ALL. I think it should be printed off, laminated and put on the props next to your plane info for 2017 Sun N Fun just to get the message across with an added note, "THIS PLANE FLOWN AND WORKED ON ==BY A WOMAN==".

Thomas Michael EdmondsonLADIES LOVE TAILDRAGGERS CHALLENGE (Judy just gave me the idea). Who is up to doing their OWN photo shoot with an airplane in the hanger with tools askew and you working on your plane. POST HERE. Or actual photos of you working on your airplane. I know several A&P members who have posted on other FB pages doing this.

Helen WoodsI obviously missed the original post. Are you referring to the SNF "ladies pavilion"? If so, I've been asking Lites to change the name for three years now. He assured me he would but... Most disappointing I could not get any support from WIA on the issue. Happy to lead the effort if you all would like to help.

Helen WoodsThey have a very similar tent at OSH. I think they call it an "activities pavilion" or something along those lines.
