Lisa Martin     (Montana)

Lisa Martin (Montana)

An update from Lisa Martin! Lisa and husband John have relocated from Wyoming to Montana. I got my private license in 1989 while 7 1/2 months pregnant with my oldest child. The family priority slowed my flying some, although my husband and I owned and operated our own aviation business in Montana spraying and doing other surveys with airplanes and helicopters. In 2003, we moved to Wyoming and my h... Read More »

Tiffany Goettl     (Arizona)

Tiffany Goettl (Arizona)

Tiffany Goettl is based at P52, Cottonwood Airport, Cottonwood, Arizona. I am now a private pilot! I received my certificate May 14, 2013 in my 1946 Taylorcraft on a windy, blustery day. Learning to fly was probably the most challenging yet rewarding thing I have ever done. I knew nothing about aviation, never even thought about flying. It was something other people did and mostly men. But when my... Read More »

Deb Nelson (Arizona)

Deb Nelson is based at Casa Grande Municipal Airport, Casa Grande, Arizona and KEPM Eastport, Maine. Here’s a very cool email I received from Steve Trieber, the happy guy that’s married to Deb Nelson. I really want to meet them both! If you read through these updates, all sent by Steve, you’ll understand why I think husbands just don’t come any more supportive than him!  &#... Read More »

Heather Pinsky (New Mexico)

Heather Pinsky is based at KCVN, Clovis Municipal Airport, Clovis, New Mexico. Hi, I’m Heather. I fly AC-130W’s as my primary job for the AF but my true love is tailwheels. I own a 7AC Champ that’s living at home in NJ with my mom at the moment. Here are some photos of me and N1202E. I’m also an avid glider pilot and you can find me flying any number of gliders or towing in... Read More »

Sally Canning     (New Mexico)

Sally Canning (New Mexico)

Sally Canning is based at Tuscon Valley Ranch, New Mexico. 600 hours in a Citabria; 400 hours in a Maule. I fly a taildragger because that is all I have ever known and because of our ranching. I don’t gather cattle with the plane but prefer to keep the plane at home. I live far enough away it is more convenient to fly to town (and a lot more fun). For many years we had several ranches and th... Read More »

Stefanie Spencer     (Arizona)

Stefanie Spencer (Arizona)

Stefanie Spencer is based at E95, Benson Municipal Airport, Benson, Arizona. I’m not sure when my love for flight began, but building model airplanes with my Dad when I was young might have sparked my interest.  I remember later on, maybe when I was 10 yrs. old or so, being admonished, “Flying is only for rich people, and we are not rich.”  I might have put my dreams of flying as...

Deb Ings     (Colorado)

Deb Ings (Colorado)

Deb Ings is based at 1CO8, Everitt Airport, Parker, Colorado. I’ve been an airplane freak since I was ten years old. I started flying gliders in college and then flew in the Air Force for 12 years. I have been a pilot for United for almost 20 years. Flying a taildragger keeps me “on my toes”… Literally! Any airline pilot will tell you how lazy our feet get! I love my Pacer ... Read More »

Priscilla Repton     (Colorado)

Priscilla Repton (Colorado)

Priscilla Repton is based at 6K5, Sisters Eagle Air Airport, Sisters, Oregon. I started having an interest in flying about a year ago. I told my husband I wanted to learn to fly and he thought it was a great idea. So, we decided a Taildragger would be the best plane to learn in because it would be the hardest and if I had to fly anything else it would make it easier. I also love the look of taildr...
