Coming Back

Coming Back

I’ve recently watched an amazing transformation happen to one of our lady taildragger pilots. Anne Wright, the original “Nervous Nellie” when it came to flying the Supercub she’s owned for over 10 years was afraid to fly. She has flown very rarely the last couple of years and always with much anxiety. But the good news is, things have changed and Anne is back in the pilot&#... Read More »

2014 LLTD Gaston’s Fly In Video

Here’s some FANTASTIC video footage from our LLT Gaston’s Fly-in! Dennis Long flew his Aeroprakt A20 to our fly-in, with a video camera mounted on the wing, and captured some amazing shots from the weekend. If you couldn’t make the flyin, no worries. You’re about to feel like you were there, buzzing the runway, in and out of the low morning fog, flying the river, and the Sa... Read More »

Let’s get this party started!!

Let’s get this party started!!

Whoopee! We made it to North Carolina! It was a 6:45 a.m. departure from Indianapolis heading out southbound just shy of the thunderstorms to our north. But I have to say, the further Anne and I flew away from Indy the better we felt and the happier we got. We were in the “Let’s get this party started!” mode but not too sure if the weather would cooperate. Of course, nothing̵... Read More »

On our way to the Ladies Only NC26 Fly-in!!

Yep, we’re finally heading southeast and on our way to NC26 in North Carolina, home of the first ever Ladies Only fly-in! What was to be a Supercub and Rans S7 flight of two turned into a flight of one when my formation flight partner, Anne Wright, got rained out in Michigan. She made it to Indy though, albeit by car, so I now it’s a two pilot, one airplane trip. Wish us luck ’ca... Read More »

A Smile a Mile Wide

I frequently receive interesting and enjoyable emails from people but this recent one from Dee Ann Ediger was extra special. Dee Ann attended our LLT flyin at Gaston’s and sent this one I just have to share. I think you’ll love it as much as I do. On Saturday afternoon at the Gaston’s flyin, a young lad with his grandparents visited the airport in order to see the airplanes. When you a... Read More »
