To encourage women everywhere to have fun flying taildraggers!

Ride Sharing to the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas Flyin: Just wondering if there are pilots with empty seats who would like some company. Please post if you'd like a passenger or if you're looking for a ride.

Kaitlin Mroz posted this a while back but no takers. "Can't wait to go for my first time! If anyone from the DFW area wants to cram into the spam can, I'll be taking my 120 that way."
