Lang Wu (California)

Lang Wu is based at KPAO, Palo Alto Airport, Palo Alto, California. I’m a new tailwheel pilot. I moved the US from China then start my PPL training in 2015. In Last September, I started to think that it’s time to make my flying more precise instead of rely on AP. So I jumped to a Citabria. It was so frustrating in the beginning. But finally I got my endorsement. I’m so glad to be a tailwheel pilot which my instructor calls a “real pilot”. Can’t wait to join this amazing community. Ratings: PPL with Instrument... Read More »

Go to the Freakin’ Airport!

Go to the Freakin’ Airport!

Lucky you, you picked just the right day to visit LadiesLoveTaildraggers! Today I’m kicking off the first in a series of observation articles by flier, film maker, and founder of … not to mention one of the best tailwheel instructors I’ve come across, Brian Lansburgh. A former airshow performer, Brian has a writing style all his own. When it comes to aviating, he doesn’t mince words and leaves you with no doubt what side of the fence he stands on. “I feel that modern flight instruction f... Read More »

Cheryl Kraemer (Texas)

Cheryl Kraemer is based at 2KL, Sunrise Beach Airport, Sunrise Beach Village, Texas, and looking forward to getting her tailwheel endorsement. I got my private in 2000. Life was busy working full time and flying took the back seat. When I retired in 2015 we bought a Grumman Tiger, I got current and got back in the left seat! Now our flying is just local and we are no longer into the long cross country trips. We sold the Tiger and have a Cub to fly. I have been in the 99s for many years and love how we support each other. I also am active with t... Read More »

Jessica Vanderzwaag (Missouri)

Jessica Vanderzwaag is based at 1MO, Mountain Grove Memorial Airport, Mountain Grove, Missouri. I am a veteran of the Air Force and was introduced to flying by an old friend. I had no idea my PPL was an option and made it work, even though it took a little while. I come from a big family whose parents taught me to work hard for my dreams – that I am capable of anything if I put my mind to it. Ratings: Private Pilot 🙂 I have flown a Cessna 152, 150, 172. I have also flown a Luscombe and Globe Swift (but never taken off or landed these two ... Read More »
