Peppermint Patty, our 1950 Cessna 140-A

Hi! I am a professional pilot flying for a major US airline. I learned to fly in the 90’s, flight instructed, and have flown for a regional, national, and fractional companies before joining my current company. In 2008, I received my tailwheel endorsement and then didn’t touch another tailwheel for years.

In December of 2015, my husband and I solved that by buying a beautiful 1950 Cessna 140-A that I have dubbed Peppermint Patty. She turns heads wherever we go!
