Here’s a link to a story about one of our lady taildragger pilots that is sure to inspire. Fighter pilot, Lt. Col. Jill Long learned to fly the civilian way, then went on to learn to fly “the Air Force way”. A Jill ‘nugget of wisdom’; never take “NO” for an answer.

It’s January and the perfect time to watch videos about flying on skis. In this one, they’re not just flying on skis, they’re plowing through DEEP snow in Aeroncas and C140s, getting stuck, getting un-stuck and having one crazy, fun time!

And finally, have you seen this IWC watch commercial staring John Malkovich? John’s most memorable line….”No, there are no “real” pilots anymore, just people in nifty uniforms who operate computers ….. “. After watching the video, the men may be lining up to buy IWC watches but I’m keeping my Timex! Come on, is the “woman pilot” actually flying with the yoke?! Kick back and be entertained by this 9 minute mini-movie. Then you decide how many watches you’re gonna buy!
