Flight Around Michigan

By Judy Birchler, host of LadiesLoveTaildraggers.com Since I love an adventure, and my husband is willing to join me in anything that involves flying in an airplane, we decided to take 3 days and try to fly the shoreline all the way around the state of Michigan.  We made the trip this past weekend, trading the pilot seat back and forth, but had to cut some corners to get back home before the thunderstorms moved in.  We accomplished our goal, albeit with a modified flight plan and incredible headwinds most of the time.  Here’s just a few p...

Jessica Beauvais (New Hampshire)

Jessica Beauvais flies Champ N2505E based at Skyhaven (DAW) in Rochester, NH. I am the treasurer of a local aviation club, the Yankee Ultralight Flyers (don’t let the name fool you, we are associated with all kinds of aircraft. The name is just for nostalgia at this point).  I started flying at the age of 14, soloed at 15 and got my license at 17, just two years after my father got his license, both Sport Pilot licenses. When I became interested in aviation my dad sold his ultralight and bought the Champ with a fellow club member, the sec... Read More »

Terri Vrbancic (Ohio)

Terri owns & flies her 1946 Taylorcraft BC12D1 and is based in Ohio. “I fell in love with taildraggers after taking an intro course to aerobatics in a C150 Aerobat.  Since then I have flown in several aerobatic contests in borrowed airplanes such as a Pitts S2B, Christen Eagle and a Decathalon. ” “One of my favorites is a little homebuilt SE5 (French WWI) replica.  It only has one seat and when I was offered the chance to fly it, I was a relatively new tailwheel pilot.  I jumped at the chance without thinking about it.  As...
