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!

Hey people, have you seen a LadiesLoveTaildraggers Fly-in video?!! The year is 2013 and, same as ALL of our fly-ins, the good weather is sometimes punctuated by periods of crappy weather. Funny thing though, those that fly, sit and wait out the weather, and make their way to our fly-ins have a great... Read More »

Chris Owen: Gullwing Stinson V-77 Reliant

LLT pilots are the coolest ladies on the planet! If you don’t think this ultra-short video of Chris Meigs-Owen departing Tampa in her Gullwing Stinson V-77 Reliant is the ultimate, you just may need to crank your volume up a little. Chris recently sent me a few pictures of herself, her bird an... Read More »

Mother Nature looks like she is doing her thing for LLT.
What didn't look good at all is now
"CLEARED FOR LANDING AND A GREAT TIME TO ALL ATTENDEES OF KLSR FLY-IN!"

Judy Birchler - you owe 'her' one wink wink. Looks like I have to get my camping gear, walking boots and "elbow grease" packed. WE'RE HEADED SOUTH THIS THURSDAY!

I'm bringing my LLT goodies I have for you from last year and examples of my artwork for the silent auction table.

Get me a "high-and-dry" camping spot for arrival 3pm-ish Thursday.

Good evening flying around the area where the LLT fly in will be next week. Even had a Cristian Eagle pilot stand and admire my bird as I taxied out of Mesquite! I spoke to a lady on the phone about a month ago about flying out with her to the fly in but haven't heard a peep back. So, if indeed I don't hear back from her, I very well may have an open seat to SLR from the DFW area Friday / Saturday. Small folks only! While legally within weight limits, the 120 is awful anemic when the temps run above the mid 80s if you load it up! (if anyone has a o-200 with prop, I'm looking to either buy or trade...) ...

Ateyo SyaksyukIt was kind of neat to stand in the shadow of the target drone. I hope none of the local Army flight ops take it as an invitation for a strafing run! (just kidding)

Niri TawäHopefully they take it as an invitation to stop for a quick cup of coffee. ( I just LOVE the sound of freedom).
