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!
