Kristena Cook is based at KLOU, Bowman Field, Louisville, Kentucky.

I have two daughters, 14 and 9. They’re excited I’m a pilot. I have been flying almost two years and also a full-time student at Eastern Kentucky University and will have my Bachelor’s degree in May. I am an active member in 99s, WAI, OBAP, and Bowman Eagles (tailwheel flying club). I am always excited and eager to be around airplanes. I work at SDF for American Airlines. It’s been 3 and a half years I’ve been there and I’m grateful.

Aircraft flown: C172, Citabria, Piper Warrior

Dream taildragger: Citabria ~ I hope to own one someday!

Thoughts on taildragging: It seems different with the center of balance. The little bitty wheel on the back is so cool! The landing nose-heavy descent is so different than a C172, but I love it. I’ve been in love with flying these aircraft since I first got in one January 2018.❤️
