Sharon Johnson is based at Tradewind Airport (KTDW) Amarillo, Texas.

I just love vintage aircraft. They have so much personality. My personal airplane is a 1935 Fairchild C8C.

My husband and I own and fly both a 1942 Stearman and a 1947 Republic Seabee. For a living we team fly a Citation 5.

Our little vintage airplanes are much more fun.

We live at Tradewind Airport where we have a hangar attached to our house.  We also have a hangar and part interest in a grass strip south of town, Blue Sky Airfield.  The Fairchild has won a few awards at airshows.  We are also in the process of rebuilding an Aeronca Champ.  We said it would be done in the spring, but wisely didn’t say which spring!
