Flying Adventures

Flying’s like a trip to the Mall…..says Bill Tracy

Flying’s like a trip to the Mall…..says Bill Tracy

This was posted on our LadiesLoveTaildraggers Facebook group and is just too good not to share on the website. ”Flying’s like a trip to the mall” says Bill Tracy and I think you just may agree. Chill out people, it’s an analogy – there’s more to this than the title. Reprinted with Bill’s permission. Yesterday I spent some time talking to Windy throwing dar... Read More »

Judy’s flying adventure week begins at the Midwest LSA Expo

Judy’s flying adventure week begins at the Midwest LSA Expo

Did I mention I’m off work next week – all 7 days of it – till Monday, Sept 16?! It’s called PTO, “paid time off”, the absolute best way to be out of work! My decision to take the week off was rather hastily made. I woke up a few days ago at my normal 5:11 a.m. and cringed once again at the darkness. Have you noticed the days are getting shorter – it’... Read More »

Home from Gaston’s OK18 Fly-in

Home from Gaston’s OK18 Fly-in

Kate and I flew home from Gaston’s Airpark at Mountain Home, Arkansas yesterday. I delivered her to 3EV, Evansville, IN, then flew the last 160 miles back to Indy timing it perfectly between 2 areas of weather. Of course I indoctrinated Kate in ALL aspects of flying including the joys of refueling. As you can see, she’s getting very comfortable around the S7! We managed to get in lots ... Read More »

Flying with the Ohio Bush Pilots

Last week when Bill Tracy posted on Facebook, “This weekend looks good for supper at Butler Ohio. Anyone interested in flying in?” I had to give it some serious thought. After all, it’s 4 hours round trip in the S7 and even though I love to fly, I love it best when I’m not flying in a straight line! But the chance to fly to a beautiful grass strip in eastern Ohio and meet u... Read More »

Amal Ajmi says “Happy Spring!” from Alaska

Hi all, spring has FINALLY come to the interior and with the lengthening days comes………..you guessed it, SKI flying!!! I am very new to this area of aviation (20 hours), but found a primo tie-down spot this year that allows me easy pull-in and pull-out capabilities. My 5’2” 115 lb., little person frame, (having no issues moving my bird around on tundra tires in the summer) is constantly pondering w... Read More »

Louise O’Grady     (Australia)

Louise O’Grady (Australia)

Louise O’Grady is based at YBLA, Benalla Airport (BLN), Benalla, Victoria, Australia. My first ever flight was in a Chipmunk, when I was an Air Cadet at 13! Well before my first flight, I had a fascination with aviation. I am not really sure where it came from, as none of my family or friends where involved in Aviation. Amy Johnson was from my home town, Hull, Yorkshire UK. I use to walk pas... Read More »

Carri Eve Hoagland hopping rides in Wisconsin!

Carri Eve Hoagland hopping rides in Wisconsin!

Here’s something that proves the power of ONE. Carri Hoagland sent in this wonderful post that should motivate us all to share our love of flying. “We had our little community Fall Festival and Fish Boil recently (Wisconsin’s largest). On a spur of the moment my son-in-law and I made a couple of crude signs Saturday morning and put them up in our little town of 450 souls. I parke... Read More »

Jean O’Cuilinn’s flight to Terlingua Ranch Airport

Thank you to Jean O’Cuilinn for the great pictures and information about her recent flight to Terlingua Ranch Airport! This is where I flew for lunch a few days ago and is somewhere I fly to fairly frequently. The pictures are the approach to Terlingua Ranch, 1E2, Alpine, Texas. Terlingua Ranch Airport is a dirt/rock, one way strip (because of the gradient and you have a mountain at the sout... Read More »
