Tina Hunter (South Africa)

Tina Hunter is based at FAKR, Krugersdorp Airport, Krugersdorp, Gauteng, South Africa.

I have wanted to get my license since I was a teenager. I got my PPL in August 2016 at age 37 in a C172. I am currently converting to tailwheel on a Kitplanes Safari that was built by my husband.

We like to do air races that take us to unusual places. Last year we won the beginner category at Race 4 Rhinos in Botswana.

Ratings: PPL, Paraglider Pilot

Aircraft flown: Cessna 172, Cessna 150, Kitplanes Safari

Favorite Taildragger: Vintage Cessna180

Taildraggers are really sexy aeroplanes and are extremely fun to fly. My flying, especially landings, have improved so much after my tailwheel training.
