I started flying sailplanes when I was a teenager and become a glider pilot when I was 19. Tow planes are mostly taildraggers and flying with them made me fall in love. After adding a power rating to my pilot licen... Read More »

Karen Croskell is based at CO8, Silver West Airport, Westcliffe, Colorado. August 2016 Update (And Karen, we hope you get to the next LLT fly in too!) I am back into flying again with our Aerotrek 220. It is 500#s lighter than our Super Cub was so it takes some getting used to, especially with flaperons. Turbulence? You can feel a rabbit fart! Hope to FINALLY get to some LLT fly ins! Original post... Read More »

Wendy Beye (Montana)

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 »

Donna Miller is based at KAPA, Centennial Airport, Denver, Colorado. I learned to fly in South Korea while working as a civilian for the Air Force. 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 »
