Christine Rhubarb (Massachusetts)

Christine Rhubarb is based at 1B9, Mansfield Municipal Airport, Mansfield, Massachusetts.

I started flying at 14, soloed at 16 and was a cadet in the Civil Air Patrol for many years. Took several years off from flying to focus on college and my mechanical engineering career. But now I’m back and I own my own Cessna 170.

 

Ratings: PPL, Complex, High Performance, Tailwheel

Favorite taildragger: The one I’m flying today!

I love the versatility of a tailwheel aircraft. Pavement, grass or snow. It can handle it all.
