The two-week period began with Andreas Ritter's arrival to finish getting checked out in his Cessna 140 and to do a little maintenance on it. Andreas brought his daughter, 14-year-old
Andreas and Anna helped me change the tires on their Cessna 140.
Anna, who pitched in to help with a bunch of the work. The two launched off in Andreas' Cessna 140 and reported that they made North Las Vegas in a couple of days. The 140 will be put in a container and sent to Germany.
A fun father-daughter flight from Sisters to North Las Vegas.
A phone call came in from Marlena Cromwell, who reports that she just took her check ride for the Instrument rating. I'm just delighted that this talented young flier, who was doing landings in a turn in her second or third flight lesson, is going forward with her flying career. Kudos as well to her flying mentor, Jim
Marlena when she started flying in the Tailwheel Town Cessna 140.
She'll be back in a while for some more tailwheel flying in the PA 12.
And, speaking of coming back, Clay Silsby, a brilliant former student who is conducting flight training in Oregon and Florida came back for a fun lunch at Tailwheel Town. Clay is running a couple of flight schools and we had a great visit.
Clay Silsby. Note he's a tailwheel guy!

And Angela did her fourth dead stick approach and landing, proving that the value of practice is huge.
