Wendy Beye is based at KRPX, Roundup Airport, Roundup, Montana. I learned to fly a Piper PA-12 in 1985, bought a 1948 Aeronca Sedan (that’s a 4-seater 150hp taildragger) in 1987, and went on to accumulate over 2,600 hours as a grey hair-inducing, backseat driving, flight instructor. I retired in 2014, and sold the Sedan to a young man who had taken his very first airplane ride with me in the... Read More »

Genevieve Zasada is based at KCOS, Colorado Springs Municipal Airport, Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’m an active 99s member and I am testing for my PPL checkride tomorrow morning! I typically fly172s but a friend let me take his Supercub for a spin and I was immediately hooked. It really taught me how to fly and how to use the rudders. I’d love to get more time in a taildragger! Genevi... Read More »

I have always loved aviation history and enjoy hearing stories from WWII. When the opportunity to own a piece of history in the form of a 1942 PT-22 came up, I jumped at the chance. I’m still new to Taildraggers, and I love feeling the excitement... Read More »

Laura Noel (Colorado)

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!
