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 t... Read More »

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!
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 »
Hey all you lady taildragger pilots, what and where are you flying this summer? It’s time we heard from you. If you’re like me and want to encourage other ladies to fly, and fly a taildragger, the best way to do it is through pictures and stories. Just seeing other women having fun flying taildraggers is a great way to promote what we love. Please send your pictures and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org for posting. Read More »
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 »
I am so excited I’m counting down the days till AirVenture! An army of volunteers are arriving at OSH and are already working hard, preparing for the onslaught of aviators soon to arrive. Half a million people, including LOTS of lady taildragger pilots, are about to converge on a small town in Wisconsin and rattle the skies for days on end. Geez, can it get any better than that?! Oh yes it can! One of my favorite people, my sweet niece Kate Chambers, is flying with me to OSH this year. Kate’s heard plenty of stories about this aweso... Read More »
Joyce Wilson is based at 4O4, Bogata, Texas. I’ve been flying for just over 7 years and am an instrument rated private pilot. I just got a 2005 Aviat Husky A1-B this year and built a 1200′ grass strip on our ranch. As a friend of mine said, it’s a little tight but it will keep the amateurs out. :-). I wanted to learn on a stick and rudder taildragger to help make me a better overall pilot. I also have a 2006 Cirrus SR-22 for those longer cross country trips. I just wish I would have had the opportunity to learn to fly when I ... Read More »
· · · – – – · · · HELP! Yes, seriously! I would like to find a few people willing to take on some pretty big tasks to help LadiesLoveTaildraggers continue to thrive and grow. They are very specific in nature and entail a lot of detail & follow through, but I’m guessing someone will come to my rescue. If you’re interested, please read on. First, I should give you a little LLT background information to kick this request off. When I started LadiesLoveTaildraggers a little over 5 years ago everything involved was pretty easy to mana...
