AVWeb video “Cub vs. Champ” Shootout

AVWeb video “Cub vs. Champ” Shootout

Hot off the AVWeb press is lady taildragger pilot Elaine Kauh and co-presenter Paul Bertorelli comparing two great old taildraggers, the Aeronca Champ and the classic Piper J-3 Cub. It’s chocked full of nice flying video and commentary on the differences in how they fly. And for those thinking about purchasing a light sport aircraft, a few thoughts about flying a 60+ year old taildragger vs.... Read More »

SUN ‘n FUN 2015 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Meetup

Who’s going to SUN ‘n FUN?!! I am! And hoping the Lakeland Linder Airport in Florida will be covered in SUNSHINE April 21 – 26, the week of the fly-in.

Only problem is, I don’t have a meet up location.┬áIf you know SUN ‘n FUN better than I do, ... Read More »

Amal Ajmi & her

Wisdom in the Bush(es)

Amal Ajmi lives in Alaska and flies in the Fairbanks area. If you’ve been around LadiesLoveTaildraggers a while, you’ve read one or more of her contributing posts. She’s good – really good! I recently asked Amal to send me an update on her AK flying and she responded in spades. I read her email, then I reread it and made a few notes to self. I tell you people, we’re a... Read More »

Say “YES” to The Tailwheeler’s Journal 2015

Say “YES” to The Tailwheeler’s Journal 2015

Brian Lansburgh from Tailwheel Town is on a roll – figuratively and literally! He kicked off 2015 with a couple of not-to-be missed articles in “The Tailwheeler’s Journal” making me happy I’m on his auto email list. Brian has a way of cutting to the chase and is a very vocal advocate of practicing precision airmanship via flying closer to the edge of the envelope. He&... Read More »

EAA Skiplane Fly-in 2015

Thank you Jessica Voruda for forwarding your fantastic skiplane flying video! Jessica explains, “It’s a collection of video I shot during the 2015 EAA Skiplane Fly-In at Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on February 7th, 2015. A lot of nice taildragger aircraft on skis. Filmed and edited by this lady.” And you are so right Jessica. I loved the panoramas of Pioneer Airport and... Read More »

Air & Space Smithsonian Magazine Inaccuracy

I’m late to the Facebook commenting party! However, I did read (with much interest) Katie Mullins’ post in the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Facebook group. For those not on Facebook or those who didn’t follow it, Katie posted: “Only 555 women have completed their pilot’s license in the past 35 years! WHAT!?!” She followed her comment with a photo and link to an articl... Read More »

Ladies really DO love taildraggers!

Ladies really DO love taildraggers!

Guest Blogger: Michelle Agee Based: KMQJ Indianapolis Regional Airport My mother has always been highly enthused about my flying and so supportive. She’s flown with me several times, but she really wanted to do some ‘fun’ things. As I did not have my taildragger sign off, I arranged a flight in a Citabria at KFNL for her. I certainly had some ‘fun’ in that airplane an... Read More »

What’s the word on a Cameron Airshow 2015?

What’s the word on a Cameron Airshow 2015?

Here is one of the best airshow videos I’ve seen. Produced by Scott Slocum it’s a high impact, cram packed 4 minutes, edited to entertain even the most hyperactive among us. Totally awesome! Cameron is located in northwest Missouri and watching this video of their 2014 airshow makes me very sorry I missed it. I can’t find anything about a Cameron Airshow 2015 – anybody know...

Woohoo! Circle Indy’s Grass Strips Flyout Video!

Woohoo! Circle Indy’s Grass Strips Flyout Video!

I always love it when video shows up unexpectedly, especially when it’s flying footage from a terrific event. I was happy as I could be when a friend gave me video he had taken at our fantastic “Circle Indy Grass Strips Flyout” — way back in 2013. The flyout was something I put together and kept my fingers crossed somebody would show up for, and did they ever! It turned out... Read More »
