I’ve hosted a wide range of contests on LadiesLoveTaildraggers and I’ve always loved running them. They’re super fun for me and everyone who enters! Contests entice readers to ponder the question “should I enter?”, put in a little effort, and reward LadiesLoveTaildraggers’ readers with the fun results. I’m happy to report this contest actually has a prize,... Read More »

Damn, am I overflying a SWAT event?!

Damn, am I overflying a SWAT event?!

What the heck is going on below me? I am low, 800′ AGL, the sun has set, it’s getting dark and ultra bright LED police strobe lights are flashing at intersections ahead of me. I see SWAT trucks in a recently combined corn field ahead. All intersections within 2 sq miles are blocked by police with lights flashing. I’m overflying, approaching my home airfield, KMQJ, anxious to land... Read More »

Wally and me!

Wally and me!

The day I met Wally Wogenstahl I had other things to do.

I wasn’t going to look outside and I surely wasn’t going to go flying. There was important work to be done! That was until Wally called wanting to see my Ran... Read More »

Personally, my goal is to fly as much, as often, and as far as possi... Read More »

Should It Stay or Should it Go?

Should It Stay or Should it Go?

It’s been an emotional week for me but, truth is, it all began months before 3rd Class Medical Reform passed and was signed into law. So what’s going on? First I should say, I’ve held a private pilot ticket since I was 21. Five years ago I made the difficult decision to exercise my right to fly light sport privileges and forgo the whole medical thing. Even though it seemed ridicu... Read More »
