To Ted (husband of Tiffany):

You are too cool dude! Your lovely wife, Tiffany, may not yet have her PPL but she is a lady learning to fly in a T’craft which certainly qualifies her to be a member of LadiesLoveTaildraggers. Congrats on your long marriage and ESPECIALLY for the decision to learn to fly in a taildragger. If marrying Tiffany is the best thing you ever did, that may be a close second!

Tiffany won’t register for this site yet as she is a student pilot and working on that goal. We have been married for 27 years, our youngest is 15. We are getting close to being empty nesters. We both decided to embark on a new adventure and decided to learn to fly.

Doing Ground School and Flight Lessons together and having a blast.

What better aircraft to learn in than a 1940’s taildragger!!

P.S. I am sure that Tiffany will add to this site very soon, with her thoughts.

Tiffany, keep us in the loop as you continue your training. We ALL remember those days, the excitement and adventure of learning to fly a taildragger. We wish you happy landings as you progress towards getting the magical ticket!

    Carrie and Helen,

    You gals are t-craft experts and it sounds like you still love to fly them! That is awesome and based on the amount of fun I am having flying my little plane I hope to become one too! After what seemed like millions of touch and go’s with my infinitely patient instructor I finally got my landings and I am happy to report that I did my first solo today, so much fun! Thank you for your messages!

    Warning, Tiffany…. these little planes will spoil you and consume your flying life! I’ve owned mine for 15 yrs. and have close to 500 hrs. in my Taylorcraft. They are delightful to fly. And you will have to learn to be patient with the many elder aviators who will walk up to you and tell you about their first flight in a TCraft. Please keep us posted on your progress and welcome to the group!

    I have thirty plus years and close to 1000 hours in my Tcraft. You made a great decision in both an airplane and a husband. Way to go girl.
