Laura Noel (Colorado)

Laura Noel is based at 7CO0, Parkland Airport, Erie, Colorado. I’m an avid general aviation pilot and always wanted to learn to fly a taildragger but didn’t have access to one. Last Spring a shiny Luscombe 8F became available and spurred me to find a place to learn. I found a flight school near me had a Citabria for rent, and the rest is history. I brought the Luscombe home to Colorado... Read More »

Vicki Coles (Washington)

Vicki Coles is based at KVUO, Pearson Field Airport, Vancouver, Washington. My first flying lesson was in 1975 in a Taylorcraft at Evergreen Field, Vancouver, WA. I soloed in the Taylorcraft and then “moved on” to the Aeronca Champ. (One didn’t “move UP” to the C150 until one had mastered the taildraggers.) I earned my Private in 1977, my Commercial in 1978 and my CFI... Read More »

I gave my husband his tailwheel endorsement about 5 years ago in a borrowed Stinson S108-2. We didn’t have anything to ... Read More »
