Lang Wu (California)

Lang Wu is based at KPAO, Palo Alto Airport, Palo Alto, California. I’m a new tailwheel pilot. I moved the US from China then start my PPL training in 2015. In Last September, I started to think that it’s time to make my flying more precise instead of rely on AP. So I jumped to a Citabria. It was so frustrating in the beginning. But finally I got my endorsement. I’m so glad to be a tailwheel pilot which my instructor calls a “real pilot”. Can’t wait to join this amazing community. Ratings: PPL with Instrument rating.

Anna Rusinowski (Canada)

Anna Rusinowski is based at CZBA, Burlington Executive Airport, a small, privately operated general aviation registered aerodrome in rural Burlington, Ontario west of Toronto. Anna is a 2019 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarship winner! My name is Anna Rusinowski and I’m from Toronto, Ontario. I completed my PPL in 2014 and have been flying recreationally ever since. More recently I have started commercial ground school in hopes of becoming a flight instructor in the next couple of years. I have never had airline aspirations and prefer spending my time in small piston engine aircraft. I have some time in tailwheel aircraft but have not yet solo’d. I am hoping to do so in 2019, it is on my bucket list for the year. I am very active in the aviation community and volunteer a lot of my time to promoting women in aviation. I manage the 99’s Instagram page, and the public relations person for an event called Girls Take Flight and am on the Board of Directors for the Northern Lights Aero Foundation. So excited to be a part of this group! Ratings: PPL Aircraft flown: Cessna 152, Cessna 172, Cessna 177, Piper Pacer, Piper Tripacer, Aeronca Champ, Lake Buccneer, Cessna Birddog L19, Trojan T-28, Piper Warrior, Dream taildragger: Kitfox Thoughts on taildragging: As Amy Johnson once said, “I think it is a pity to lose the romantic side of flying and simply to accept it as a means of transport”. Flying taildraggers is aviation in its purest form. I want to fly over southern Africa in a Tigermoth like Robert Redford, the first movie I watched that inspired me to fly....

And the LLT 2019 Scholarship Winners Are…..

And the LLT 2019 Scholarship Winners Are…..

The list of LadiesLoveTaildraggers’ scholarship winners took a giant leap forward in 2019. This year we’re awarding an incredible 12 scholarships, amazingly twice as many as last year! As you know, the mission of our organization is to encourage more women to fly taildraggers and that’s exactly what we’ve focused this year’s scholarships around. We also want to encourage top-notch taildragger flying so advanced training scholarships have also been awarded. Here’s how it shakes out. 10 Scholarships went to well deserving lady pilots who will be earning their Tailwheel Endorsements in 2019 2 Scholarships went to existing lady taildragger pilots who will be receiving advanced flight training very soon A Special Thank You None of this would have been possible without the selfless volunteerism by several CFIs across the country and the unwavering support of individuals who donated to our 2018 GoFundMe Scholarship campaign. Our new Approach We changed things up this year with an entirely new approach to our scholarship program. After we announced we were looking for women CFIs willing to donate their instruction time, and if possible, their aircraft to help other woman pilots, the door cracked open. Those conversations led to women CFIs volunteering themselves and sometimes an aircraft. Although it was a little more complicated, this maximized the number of women we could support. We used our scholarship fund to cover the discounted aircraft rental, hugely discounted flight training, and travel expenses for scholarship winners as necessary. Unfortunately, due to proximity of applicants vs CFIs, and reasonably priced aircraft rental, not all CFIs could be utilized. This new system isn’t perfect, but still 100% better than last year. With a little luck and more volunteer CFIs, we can take this program even further next year. Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarship Recipients and Their Instructors Instructor: Dianne Wieman Instructor Dianne Wieman donated her time and her aircraft, a 7AC Champ, to train two women pilots. Dianne is based at 1TE4, Zuehl Field, San Antonio, TX and is a CFII, ASEL with a CFIG (glider) rating and an A&P/IA. Dianne will be instructing 2 Pilots: Pilot Samantha Bledsoe, Charleston, SC will train with Dianne Wieman in San Antonio, TX. Samantha is 20 years old,  a college student and assistant manager at Clean Juice Calhoun. “I believe that my dedication to aviation is what sets me apart from other scholarship applications. I am driven, so when I set a goal for myself I will do everything in my power to achieve it. My days start at 5:30 am, and do not end until 9 at night. These days are filled with work, classes, studying for aviation-related subjects, volunteering, and flying when I have the money.” Pilot Anna Rusinowski, Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada will train with Dianne Wieman in San Antonio, TX. Anna is 30 years old and is an Allocation Analyst at TJX Canada. “My long term goal is to become a flight instructor and I am currently working towards the completion of my CPL Ground school. I am an activist for women in aviation and hope to share my passion with others throughout my journey.” Instructor: Laura Stants Instructor Laura Stants donated her time and arranged for a deeply discount hourly rate in the Aeronca Champ she’ll use for instructon. Laura is based at a grass strip near Kokomo, Indiana, Glenndale, 8I3, and is a corporate pilot and CFI/CFII/MEI who gives tailwheel instruction in a variety of aircraft including the T-6. Laura will be instructing one pilot: Pilot Amy Hills, Avon, Indiana will train with Laura Stants, Kokomo, IN. Amy is 34 years old and currently working toward becoming a CFI/CFII. “A tailwheel endorsement will change my flying for the better. It will vastly improve my stick and rudder skills, and give me a great understanding of the history of aviation and allow me to move forward in my ultimate goal of becoming a CFI – I want to teach all manner of single engine planes, including tailwheel.” Instructor: Christine Mortine Instructor Christine Mortine donated her time and aircraft and will be instructing in her C140 at KOSU, Ohio State University Airport, Columbus, Ohio. Christine is a musician and former professor who is now a full time flight instructor and a MEI with a SIC Citation 500 rating. Christine will be instructing one pilot: Pilot Delaney Johnston, Chicago, IL will train with Christine Mortine, Columbus, OH. Delaney is 23 years old and an Environmental Planner at Ricondo & Associates, Inc. “As a young child, I was transfixed by old photos of my grandpa during his time as a pilot in World War II. I grew fascinated with flying, and by the age of 17, I was up in the air where I belong. Although my initial interest was sparked by my grandpa, it developed into a full-blown aviation obsession throughout my teens and late 20s due to feelings of liberation and pride every time I stepped into an airplane. The confidence, diligence, and sense of adventure I’ve gained from piloting an airplane has translated to many aspects of my life. Exciting cross countries out west, day trips to nearby towns, and introducing the world of aviation to my friends has solidified my passion, and I cannot wait to develop more skills in my future training.” Instructor: Carol Walker Instructor Carol Walker, owner of Big Q Aviation, Midlothian, TX, will be training two ladies in her 1940 J-3 Cub at Mid-Way Regional Airport, JWY, and has discounted her standard rate to make these scholarships available. Carol is a full-time flight instructor who teaches exclusively in tailwheel airplanes and gliders and flies J-3 Cubs to adrenaline-soaked Pitts S2-Bs and anything in between. Carol will be instructing 2 pilots: Pilot Nicole Lund, Omaha, NB will train with Carol Walker, Dallas, TX. Nicole is 20 years old and currently works three jobs to pay for her college degree and flight training; TAC Air- Customer Service Representative, Frontier Airlines- Gate/Ramp Agent, and NASA- Student Worker for Nebraska Space Grant Program. “I fell in love with aviation the first time I went to a military air show when I was five years old and knew I wanted to be a pilot. My parents told me that if I ever wanted to get my pilot’s license, I would have to pay for it myself. I began walking cornfields at thirteen years old and continued to detassel corn the following nine years. I put every penny I made into a savings account that I did not touch until I began my private pilot training as a Freshman in college.” Pilot Emma Redfearn, Alisa Craig, Ontario, Canada will train with Carol Walker, Dallas, TX. Emma is a 21 year old college student. “As an officer in the Canadian Reserves working with the Air Cadets I work with youth between 12 and 19. Part of the mandate of Air Cadets is to provide youth with opportunities in aviation. As an officer with the cadets, I have the opportunity to act as a tow pilot for gliders which fly exclusively taildraggers. I would be able to give back to the aviation community and provide young people with the chance to fly.” Instructor: Sarah Rovner Instructor Sarah Rovner donated her time and her aircraft, a Supercub, to train two women pilots. Sarah is a CFI/CFII and flies for United Airlines.  She is also founder & CEO of Full Throttle Aviation, a company that offers ferry pilot services and aircraft delivery. Sarah will be instructing 2 pilots: Pilot Katelyn Ebdon, Pasadena, TX will train with Sarah Rovner, Philadelphia, PA. Katelyn is a high school senior who will be 18 this spring. “As a H.S. senior I spent all of my savings on my private pilot certificate so that I will save a year’s worth of tuition at ERAU. I was able to obtain my PPL, complex, high performance, and began working on my tailwheel endorsement while working at Texas Aviation Academy this summer, but now that I have taken out 2 college loans my mom prefers me to pursue paying for college, and not additional endorsements. My family is unable to financially support my aviation endeavors.” Pilot Kaitlyn Ciomperlik, College Station, TX will train with Sarah Rovner, Philadelphia, PA. Kaitlyn is 23 years old and Director of Customer Relations at Brazos Valley Flight Services. “You know that flying is a passion when the highlight of a vacation is not the actual vacation itself but the flight to and from your destination. As I earn hours towards my Commercial minimums and eventually work towards my CFI rating, I would love to continue my training in tailwheel aircraft so I can be one of very few tailwheel instructors at the flight school I am employed at.” Instructor: Lisa Martin Instructor Lisa Martin is temporarily based at Mesa, Arizona, Falcon Field, instructing full-time through March. Lisa is a CFII and Flight Instructor and A&P at Classic Air Aviation, Tour Pilot at Brooks Seaplane Service and Co-Owner at Coeur d’Alene Seaplanes. Lisa will be instructing one pilot: Pilot Stephanie Frazier, Chandler, AZ will train with Lisa Martin, Phoenix, AZ. Stephanie is 25 years old and a flight attendant. “Since my first flight in a 1943 Piper J3 Cub I have been in love with tailwheel planes. I strongly believe, as many others do, that flying tailwheel builds important stick and rudder skills, making for a better pilot. My goal is to build up my tailwheel time and skills once I get my endorsement and commercial certificate with a job flying tailwheel planes by banner towing or dropping skydivers. I plan on pursuing aerobatics once I reach my goal of becoming a commercial pilot as well.” Instructor: Brian Lansburgh Instructor Brian Lansburgh, CFI from Tailwheel Town, Sisters Airport, Oregon has happily agreed to return to the Ladies Love Taildraggers’ scholarship program.  Brian returns with both a new airplane and a new training syllabus. Training is now being done in a Piper PA12 “Super Cruiser” with an 0-320 engine.  Brian says the new trainer is one that Piper only built for a couple of years and which is simply a three-place Super Cub. Equipped with ADS-B, the new Super Cruiser is a great tailwheel and back country bush trainer. Brian’s precision airmanship flight training methods have made him a leader in the world of tailwheel flying. Those who win a scholarship to Brian’s “Tailwheel Town” will receive a ten-hour course, rather than a six-hour course. The flying at Tailwheel Town is quite varied and students may choose to get experience in Mountain Flying, Bush Flying, One-wheel work and Spins, with attention paid to “G” force, one wheel work and unusual attitude recovery.  Attention will be paid to each applicant’s comfort and no one will be expected to undergo anything but fun flying and some applicant’s will even have a chance to test their accuracy in the famous Duck Box Crash! Brian will be instructing two pilots, one Tailwheel Endorsement and one Advanced Training scholarship winner: Pilot Kendra Hart, Phoenix, AZ will train with Brian Lansburgh, Sisters, OR. Kendra is 24 years old and a remote agent at Aira Tech Corp. “As a military spouse, my need for any additional endorsements and ratings is critical as I move around the country applying for jobs at each new station. I am also resilient and dedicated, relentless in pursuing aviation! After marrying my husband and in the middle of my commercial training, we moved to a rural area in Texas where flight training was not available but I knew it was a matter of when – not if, I would finish my commercial rating. While we were there, I found a flight school that was an hour and a half drive each way and I made the drive five days a week to do a CFI ground class and move closer to finishing my commercial training.” Advanced Training for existing Tailwheel Pilots a.k.a. Name Your Own Scholarship Advanced Training Instructor: Lynn Gardner Instructor Lynn Gardner is a professional corporate pilot, CFI/ CFII and back-country pilot with an emphasis on off-field/hostile environment emergency landings. She is also an experimental aircraft builder and has completed two Just Aircraft Highlanders and a Rans S7. Lynn will be instructing one pilot: Pilot Karen Ewart, Fayetteville, NC will train with Lynn Gardner, in north-central FL. Karen is a 53 year old stay at home mom with CFI and CFII ratings. “I want to review basic flight maneuvers, especially stalls and unusual attitude recovery and then move on to refining my short field and spot landing techniques.” Karen’s goal as a CFII who has not instructed in many years, is to get back into active flight instruction. Advanced Training Instructor: Brian Lansburgh Instructor Brian Lansburgh  returns to LadiesLoveTaildraggers and will be training in a Piper PA12 “Super Cruiser” with an 0-320 engine and a great tailwheel and back country bush trainer. New scholarship winners will get the chance to practice landings in a turn, Dead Stick Landings and spins, among other innovative training maneuvers.  Those who win a scholarship to Brian’s “Tailwheel Town” will receive a ten-hour course, rather than a six-hour course and will soon be looking down their noses at those who are graduates of what Brian refers to as “Acme” flying schools. The flying at Tailwheel Town is quite varied and students may choose to get experience in Mountain Flying, Bush Flying, One-wheel work and Spins, with attention paid to “G” force, one wheel work and unusual attitude recovery.  Attention will be paid to applicant’s comfort and no one will be expected to undergo anything but fun flying and some applicant’s will even have a chance to test their accuracy in the famous Duck Box Crash! Brian will be instructing: Pilot Christie Osburn, Kotzebue, AK will train with Brian Lansburgh, Sisters, OR. Christie is a 30 year old wildlife biologist. “I live and work in northwestern Alaska where roads barely exist and access in and out of communities is limited to travel by air, boat or snow machine. Aviation is the lifeblood of these small, rural villages. My aviation goal is to be a pilot-biologist and my goal is within reach; however, many more hours of training and experience will be necessary to conduct research flights both safely and effectively. Many wildlife survey are flown at low airspeeds and low altitudes where safety margins are slim. Having upset recovery training would not only help prevent upset conditions in the first place but also provide for efficient reactions in situations when time and altitude are limited. Pilot-biologists are routinely flying in new terrain and variable conditions; adaptability and an intimate knowledge of the functionality of the aircraft (and one’s self) are essential for the safety of pilot and observers.”...

Go to the Freakin’ Airport!

Go to the Freakin’ Airport!

Lucky you, you picked just the right day to visit LadiesLoveTaildraggers! Today I’m kicking off the first in a series of observation articles by flier, film maker, and founder of … not to mention one of the best tailwheel instructors I’ve come across, Brian Lansburgh. A former airshow performer, Brian has a writing style all his own. When it comes to aviating, he doesn’t mince words and leaves you with no doubt what side of the fence he stands on. “I feel that modern flight instruction fails miserably in developing much skill in those who are taught in the vast majority of flight schools. If we want to produce safe pilots, we’d better train pilots to a much higher skill level than is currently found in the majority of pilots.” Brian Lansburgh “After You!” (Or, “Go to the Freakin’ Airport!”) When this article was sitting in the folder where I keep unfinished articles, it had a note at the top. It said, “I’m not sure that this article will be understood”. Well, the article is finished now and shuttled off to the Tailwheeler’s Journal queue. I hope it will be understood. If it is not, it will be because its writer failed to express his thoughts well or that his readers just weren’t up to understanding it. You be the judge. I will always remember one of the few times that Bill Warren was actually giving me dual. Most of the instruction I got from Bill was in the form of osmosis, gained while we were doing something else, like filming or simply going somewhere. But on this occasion I was entering a traffic pattern. I was evidently going to some point from where I could join a pattern leg. Bill didn’t hide his annoyance. “Where in the hell are you going?” he asked with obvious irritation. I may have stammered an explanation, but Bill set me straight. “If you’re going to the airport, then GO TO THE FREAKIN’ AIRPORT!” (Bill didn’t actually say “freakin’”. I’ve just cleaned it up for my more easily offended readers. You know who you are). I’ve never forgotten the lesson I learned that day, nor its foundation in logic. **** Kelly and I launched off of the airport where he hangars his Stinson 108-1. Our plan was to arrive at a nearby airport at about seven thousand feet so we could execute a simulated engine failure and practice a circling approach to a nice, long runway. This is a really important maneuver and one I try to make sure that every one of my students comes close to mastering. It’s one of those maneuvers which I feel can save your life. But convincing you of the value of the power-off, circling overhead, accuracy approach is not why I’m writing this. When we were at seven thousand feet and calling our intentions on the radio, we were immediately answered by a guy in a high-performance single. I knew he was there and I knew what he was doing. I saw him way out there, actually flying away from the airport so he could come in on that ridiculous five-mile-long forty-five (“Why don’t they just go to the freakin’ airport?”). That’s why at first I was surprised to hear him transmit and say, “I’ll go around out here and wait for you to finish your maneuver.” I did a mental double-take, but I’ve got to admit that I’m no longer THAT surprised by this move on the part of another pilot. This guy had time to write a letter to all of his friends, send it to them by pigeon and then wait for them to form up in echelon formation and land before he’d have been in our way. But why didn’t he see that? Probably for the same reason that so many power pilots used to do the same thing to me when I was flying the Big Yellow Glider at Sunriver. I’d call my position just so people would know where I was. They, on the other hand, would immediately stop their approach and tell me that they were going to get the hell out of my way. There’s a huge weakness in the ability to grasp situational awareness on the part of so many pilots. They will burn untold gallons of gas and spend gobs of increasingly expensive flight time because they simply have no idea how long it takes them to land. They also are, for the most part, unable to execute a short approach. Glider pilot Dale Masters and I would often explain to other pilots that there was a huge window of time in which we could land and clear the runway. We would explain to them that, even in the absence of lift, we could go to minimum sink (they normally don’t know what that is) and loiter while they continued in to land. Or we could dump the nose, open the spoilers and swoop in, using a fraction of that time in order to land ahead of them without causing them any delay. They could not grasp it. And we were flying a sailplane! THEY were the guys with the engine! It was hopeless. They’d drone around out there forever waiting for the guy who had just told them that it wasn’t necessary. Oh, and then they’d complain about “that damned glider”. Here are the things I’ve learned from that and similar experiences: There are several things that the overwhelming majority of amateur general aviation pilots cannot do or understand. They can’t land long; they can’t make short approaches; they can’t fly formation and they can’t figure out when they can swoop in ahead of another guy without “cutting him off”. These are just a few of the reasons that general aviation is plagued by such abysmally low flying skills on the part of such a large segment of its population. Just the other day, I was doing a transition course with a good pilot. We did a touch and go behind a Cessna 172 at a busy Central Oregon airport which will remain nameless.The guy we were following just kept departing straight out, even though he was in a closed pattern. We turned out and our crosswind was executed at just about the same time as his. As we turned on downwind, I transmitted that fact. A few seconds later the guy in the Cessna called his downwind, “behind that Stinson that went in front of me”. I think I detected the old “you cut me off” tone in his voice. We continued to do that landing, which was our last landing of the day, cleared the runway and taxied to the hangar. As we neared the hangar row I looked back to see the Cessna on final. That would be the Cessna that we “cut off”. In case you missed it, let me say it again: We were at the hangar and he was just turning final. And yet, he probably felt that we’d “cut him off”. I hope that I will never unfairly criticize an individual for what I see as deficient skills. I will, however, blame such a pilot for failing to work to increase his level of skill and to learn to judge his place in the pattern. If you recognize yourself as one of those under-skilled pilots, don’t beat yourself up over it. Simply go out and practice. Practice until you can do those things. Do your part to make us all look qualified to wear the moniker, PILOT. And while you’re at it, enjoy…HAPPY SWOOPING!Brian...

Cheryl Kraemer is based at 2KL, Sunrise Beach Airport, Sunrise Beach Village, Texas, and looking forward to getting her tailwheel endorsement. I got my private in 2000. Life was busy working full time and flying took the back seat. When I retired in 2015 we bought a Grumman Tiger, I got current and got back in the left seat! Now our flying is just local and we are no longer into the long cross country trips. We sold the Tiger and have a Cub to fly. I have been in the 99s for many years and love how we support each other. I also am active with the AYA in which we have many great friends.

Jessica Vanderzwaag is based at 1MO, Mountain Grove Memorial Airport, Mountain Grove, Missouri. I am a veteran of the Air Force and was introduced to flying by an old friend. I had no idea my PPL was an option and made it work, even though it took a little while. I come from a big family whose parents taught me to work hard for my dreams – that I am capable of anything if I put my mind to it. Ratings: Private Pilot 🙂 I have flown a Cessna 152, 150, 172. I have also flown a Luscombe and Globe Swift (but never taken off or landed these two since I do not have my tailwheel endorsement yet.) Taildragger thoughts: The dream is to own my own taildragger and possibly airstrip one day. Big goals! Some of the coolest airplanes are taildraggers! The Piper Cub will always be a favorite along with Stearman’s, Waco’s, and all the other fun taildraggers. They all have something different to offer! Vote at:
