Thank you to Barbe Park for sending in this pilot update. Barbe is based at KMMV, McMinnville Municipal Airport, McMinnville, Oregon.

Lindsay Kitson (Canada)

Lindsay Kitson is based at CYAV, St. Andrews Airport, St. Andrews, Manitoba, Canada. My instructor’s favourite plane is the Citabria and that’s the plane they teach aerobatics in at my flight school, so it took no encouragement at all to make me want to learn it. I love the challenge, but I really couldn’t say what it is about the taildragger planes that I like about them. I aske... Read More »

Julie Jetzer is based at NC26, Long Island Airport, Long Island, North Carolina. I decided to start learning how to fly after living in an Airpark for five years and walking past our Cessna 150 almost everyday. It started to drive me crazy so I walked up to my husband (also a non-pilot) and informed him that I needed to be added to the Cessna’s insurance since, I was going to start lessons. ... Read More »

In 2003, we moved to Wyoming and my h... Read More »
