This is about the wonderful world of obsession as it relates to one lady taildragger pilot. And mind you, not just any obsession. By definition, obsession is a state in which someone thinks about something constantly or frequently in a way that is not normal. Seriously? A lady taildraggers pilot not normal? Well just maybe. Obsession is a crazy thing but lady taildragger pilots do not obsess about the usual run of the mill obsessions like…

  • germs (heck no)
  • cleanliness (no way)
  • superstitions about lucky/unlucky numbers (better things are calling us)
  • blurting out obscenities (ok, maybe this one)
  • washing hands excessively (how else ya gonna get all that grease off)
  • putting things in order…over…and over…and over (no – don’t think so)

No, those are not our thing.We may be obsessed, but germs, cleanliness and order are probably not at the top of our list. We’ve got way more important, way more obsessive things to worry about. Taildraggers!

As an example, I offer you one very obsessive, very dynamic, very taildragger obsessed lady, Terri Hull.

And if 3 taildraggers isn’t obsessive enough, Terri is type rated as captain and flies SIC on the Citation XL for NetJets as a day job. Talk about living and breathing airplanes, Terri is one of my favorite people that truly does it all.

One more awesome lady taildragger pilot I’m happy to say is a member of our organization.
