Laura Noel is based at 7CO0, Parkland Airport, Erie, Colorado. I’m an avid general aviation pilot and always wanted to learn to fly a taildragger but didn’t have access to one. Last Spring a shiny Luscombe 8F became available and spurred me to find a place to learn. I found a flight school near me had a Citabria for rent, and the rest is history. I brought the Luscombe home to Colorado... Read More »

Cindy Fritz is based at KBOI, Boise/Gowen Field, Boise, Idaho. I learned to fly in my 1972 Citabria 7GCBC. I received my PPL in December 2014. A week after that the skis went on and I am baby stepping my way into Idaho snow covered backcountry airstrips! I look forward to flying the Citabria with and without skis, and, of course, upside down. A lifetime of learning and fun ahead!     Read More »

I am working on getting my tailwheel endorsement, so I don’t have it yet, but SOON. I’m also a member ... Read More »
