Julia Kirchenbauer (Colorado)

Julia Kirchenbauer is based at KFTG Front Range Airport, Denver, Colorado. Completing my ticket has been a work in progress for nearly 5 years. I started flying lessons while I was in the US Navy and had a large number of set backs each time I would hit the ground running. From temporary closure and eventual permanent closure of the Navy Flying Club on base, to detachments at other Naval Air Stati... Read More »

Ginny Stromberg (New York)

Ginny Stromberg is based at KITH, Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, Ithaca, New York. I fly out of KITH. Love Tailwheel airplanes! I remember at my first flight school (where I soloed). They had this beautiful Citabria that I just found enchanting, but since my goal at the time was to fly a big jet, it just seemed impractical to learn to fly it, so it just sat in the corner of the hangar, lonely. ...

Cindy Fritz (Idaho)

Cindy Fritz is based at KBOI, Boise/Gowen Field, Boise, Idaho. I learned to fly in my 1972 Citabria 7GCBC. I received my PPL in December 2014. A week after that the skis went on and I am baby stepping my way into Idaho snow covered backcountry airstrips! I look forward to flying the Citabria with and without skis, and, of course, upside down. A lifetime of learning and fun ahead!     Read More »

Ladies really DO love taildraggers!

Ladies really DO love taildraggers!

Guest Blogger: Michelle Agee Based: KMQJ Indianapolis Regional Airport My mother has always been highly enthused about my flying and so supportive. She’s flown with me several times, but she really wanted to do some ‘fun’ things. As I did not have my taildragger sign off, I arranged a flight in a Citabria at KFNL for her. I certainly had some ‘fun’ in that airplane an... Read More »

Emily Carpenter (Ohio)

Emily Carpenter is based at 57D, Ray Community Airport, Ray, Michigan. My name is Emily Carpenter, a.k.a. Miss Maverick. I am a student pilot and I am training in a Pitts S2B in my pink heels (so I can reach the rudders). I started flying because I was, and still am, terrified of flying commercially. I love flying because even though it frightens me, the fear has been my driving force. I was absol... Read More »

Beech’s everywhere!

Beech’s everywhere!

You bet Beech’s are everywhere, we’re at Beech Party 2014. Staggerwings, Beech 18s, Travel Airs, and more V-tails, Dukes and Debonairs than you’ve ever seen in one spot. It’s not all about the planes though, it’s about meeting new people – new pilots. Thank you to whoever suggested photographing all the lady pilots. We got a kick out of posing in front of Stagge...
