Kate Kyer is based at 4TX3 Forest Hill Airport, Petty, Texas. My husband and I live on our little farm with a runway in North Texas.

Lots of BE-18 time, flying newspapers back in the 80s, towing gliders in a Citabria, etc. We’ve owned a Pitts S-2B for 16 years... Read More »

Kathy Wurst is based at KGCY, Greeneville-Greene County Airport, Greeneville, TN. I’m learning to fly in a 1945 Piper J3C-65 Cub. I like taildraggers because they fly low and slow. Much like life, it’s all about the journey, not the destination.   Read More »

Ruthie Wells (Indiana)

Ruthie Wells flies when possible at airports around Indianapolis. I met Ruthie a few weeks ago at an Indianapolis area airport. She had ridden her bicycle nearly 10 miles on a very cold day to get there. Ruthie told me she rides that bike everywhere and it’s her only mode of transportation. That may be something you do in NYC but it’s a really difficult thing when you live way out in t... Read More »

It has been with their po... Read More »
