The ultimate accolade for Champ G-TECC

The ultimate accolade for Champ G-TECC

Many thanks to our own UK Aeronca Champ pilot, Nic Orchard, for sending this wonderful account of the 2014 Goodwood Spirit of Aviation Revival event. Nic is based at Maypole (EGHB), United Kingdom, and with a tailwind, a 70 minute Champ flight to Goodwood Aerodrome. Having received the ultimate accolade for G-TECC – an invitation to be part of the static display at the famous Goodwood Reviva... Read More »

I’m ashamed to admit it but my real ... Read More »

Where oh where are the airplanes?

Where oh where are the airplanes?

I’m happy. I’m WAY south of my home in Indiana, delivered to the warm and very sunny state of Florida by the Boydster. We came in the Mooney 231 for the Mooney Summit, climbing out 3.5 short and comfortable hours after departure. The difference between our Mooney flight and a Rans S7 or a Super Cub flight compared to ANY Mooney flight, is huge. I actually fell asleep on the way down in... Read More »

Beech’s everywhere!

Beech’s everywhere!

You bet Beech’s are everywhere, we’re at Beech Party 2014. Staggerwings, Beech 18s, Travel Airs, and more V-tails, Dukes and Debonairs than you’ve ever seen in one spot. It’s not all about the planes though, it’s about meeting new people – new pilots. Thank you to whoever suggested photographing all the lady pilots. We got a kick out of posing in front of Stagge...

What a blast, bumps and all!

What a blast, bumps and all!

Anne and I had a blast flying down to Tullahoma today. Silky smooth early in the morning then we bumped our way into 3M7 for super cheap fuel. $4.89 a gallon! The guy on Unicom announced we looked like “a homesick angel flying up to heaven”. I admit it, I was showing off! Yes there are lady Taildragger pilots here! We bumped into Joy Terrell and Kelly McClure right off the bat. It̵... Read More »

I’m gonna miss pacing myself with that p... Read More »

“NO, don’t bring your fly-in here”

“NO, don’t bring your fly-in here”

“No, don’t bring your fly-in here.” Unbelievably, that’s the message I heard today when I phoned Lake Murray State Park about the possibility of holding our 2015 LadiesLoveTaildraggers flyin at their state park resort and airport. Don’t get me wrong, their refusal to even consider allowing our group to come to their airport had nothing to do with our ladies. It had ev... Read More »
