Ratings: Sport Pilot with taildragger Aircraft flown: Sky Arrow CTLS Champion Taylorcraft Dream Taildragger: Cub Thoughts on taildragging: Taildraggers are more “real.” All I have for navigation is a compass and I love how it’s such an art as opposed to a science.

My Flight of Self Discovery

My Flight of Self Discovery

I just returned from a whirlwind, solo flight RT from Indianapolis, Indiana to Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas. Once there, my Decathlon and I circled the enormous metroplex, 180 miles +/-, and poked ourselves in and out under the Class B Airspace as we saw fit. Ground covered; approx 1,700 statute miles in 3 days. My decision to fly to Texas Monday afternoon came out of nowhere and was totally spur-of-the-moment. It was not planned and was brought on by a single text message I received the day before that included this picture. Or at least I thought I... Read More »

Help! Need a Taylorcraft Owner to Come to the Rescue!

Help! Need a Taylorcraft Owner to Come to the Rescue!

I’m looking for a Taylorcraft owner to come to the rescue. The story is… Grandpa is 75 and has owned his Tcraft forever. His son (based at my airport in Indianapolis, KMQJ) flies a Citation and has over 10,000 hours. Following in his dad’s footsteps, 500+ hours were in his own Tcraft! Generation 3 happens and his son solos on his 16th birthday; first in dad’s Tcraft then in Grandpa’s. Awesome! This is where you come in. They want to do a 3-generation photo shoot, all flying Tcrafts. Our 10,000 hour pilot would fly ... Read More »

Andrea McGilvray is based at private grass strip about 10 minutes north (Medina TX) from TE90, Flying L Airport, Bandera, Texas. I love to fly! It started with a 2 seat Beaver ultralight in Canada. There you needed a minimum of 5 hrs. and I soloed at 4.5 hrs. I got my private license in 1987 in a Cessna 172. After I got my ultralight lisc, I dated my flight instructor and got to fly all kinds of airplanes. I also flew an Eipper MX2 – loved it, I pulled up to go over fences (BIG SMILES). Ted flew up north in Alberta so I got to experience that k... Read More »
