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...

My earliest memories include landing on the dirt road close to my house, or the field behind our shelter belt. It wasn’t unusual for me to stare at my father’s profile from the backseat and think he was magic. ... Read More »

Lucia Galgano (California)

Lucia Galgano is based at KCMA, Camarillo Airport, Camarillo, California. Even though I own a Bonanza, my favorite airplane is a Citabria.

Ginger Davidson (Contest Entry #10)

The Grasshopper and I . . . by Ginger Davidson It was a cold December day when I found myself alone for the first time in my own airplane.

Like everyone else, I had read the stories about barnstormers wh... Read More »
