I’m Just a Girl!

I’m Just a Girl!

I just finished the book ‘A Hunger for the Sky’ by Sparky Barnes Sargent and totally enjoyed it. The book is a compilation of 9 women pilots’ personal stories made all the more interesting to me because several are LadiesLoveTaildraggers members. One of the women Sparky writes about is Catherine Cavagnaro, a lady taildragger pilot …… and a whole lot more. Catherine an... Read More »

Elizabeth Reese: Mack Mesa Airport, Colorado, May 20-22, 2016

News from Elizabeth Reese. Hi! Just came to the realization that I never posted an update I said I would after my (private pilot) check ride back in 2012! It went well, although I can’t say it went smoothly! There was bumpy air, we had malfunctioning headsets so it was difficult to hear one another, and there was lots of traffic that day that required the tower to request expedited landings ...

Enjoy the Journey …

Enjoy the Journey …

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 time. The long range weather forecast for KSLR Texas is great but I’m preparing you and me bo... Read More »

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.

Antique Airfield, Iowa vs. Triple Tree Aerodrome, South Carolina

Silly me, I don’t have to choose!! I’ve been busy filling my ‘fly-in’ dance card for spring, summer & fall 2016 and JUST realized I can do both. Two weekends – two great fly-ins back to back. They are both fabulous grassroots, my kind of flying events, one of which I have never been to. I am thrilled to learn that if I can save up enough PTO work time, I can hit t... Read More »
