Heidi Stoeppler, “Flying my Taylorcraft”

Thanks to Heidi Stoeppler for sending in some great summer flying shots and a description of the fun she’s having in her Taylorcraft. Keep it up Heidi, you’re an inspiration! I flew out to Hot Springs, SD from Fort Benton, MT to start my shift loading SEATs for the summer. That was an adventure in itself. It got too hot so I stopped in Colstrip, MT for the night. Met some good people a... Read More »

Heidi Stoeppler (Montana)

Heidi Stoeppler is based at 79S, Fort Benton Airport, Fort Benton, Montana. I absolutely LOVE flying! I am working on buying a small taildragger to fly around in. Mostly to get hours (I want to be a crop duster some day) but also so I can explore the country and go to all the fly-ins! I am working on getting my tailwheel endorsement, so I don’t have it yet, but SOON. I’m also a member ... Read More »

Nudist Camp   (Contest Entry #5)

Nudist Camp (Contest Entry #5)

Nudist Camp by Gayle Crowder I’m in my thirties. Over the past few years, since I began flying, some of my best pals have become folks in their sixties. Other than my parents, I’d never really talked to people in that age group. I’m so lucky that my venture into aviation has delivered me these gifts of friendship. Otherwise, I’d have missed out on all sorts of crazy things!... Read More »

Sarah Rovner is based at KDWH, David Wayne Hooks Memorial Airport, Houston, Texas. **Thanks for the pilot update Sarah!!** Since discovering the awesomeness surrounding conventional gear aircraft, I have made an effort to make most of my flying in these type of airplanes. After building time in a Champ to meet the insurance requirements, I began towing gliders at my local soaring club in a Piper P... Read More »

Shannon Gallagher is a PILOT!!

I have always been interested in flying since I was young but the timing just wasn’t right. Then about 4 years ago I met my other half, Chuck, who just happened to have a 1940 Taylorcraft. Soon after I started to take instruction at our local airport. After almost a year and a half of time my instructor backed out because of airport politics. At this point my student pilot cert was getting r... Read More »

Michelle Boyd (Indiana)

Michelle Boyd is based at 83I, Glenndale Airport, Kokomo, Indiana. I just earned my private pilot license in July, 2012. Even though I took my lessons in a Cessna 172, I spent all my free time hanging out at a private strip nearby and flying with “the guys” in their Luscombe, Chief, Citabria, and Champ. I learned to love tailwheels. My boyfriend and I just purchased this 1946 Taylorcra... Read More »

Tiffany Goettl (Arizona)

Tiffany Goettl is based at P52, Cottonwood Airport, Cottonwood, Arizona. I am now a private pilot! I received my certificate May 14, 2013 in my 1946 Taylorcraft on a windy, blustery day. Learning to fly was probably the most challenging yet rewarding thing I have ever done. I knew nothing about aviation, never even thought about flying. It was something other people did and mostly men. But when my... Read More »
