The last two weeks at Tailwheel Town
Copies of "Swoop" are still available! Here's the link to take you right to Amazon if you'd like to get a copy for yourself.

In the pattern at Madras the other day, I had one of my former applicants say "howdy" from his airliner cockpit high above.   It is always a great experience when former applicants make themselves known!  

Old Pal John Rogers stopped by for a little flying and a PA12 checkout and we had a good time in the irrigation pivot.

 He was followed by one of the best applicants who has ever visited Tailwheel Town.

 Ella Blanks received her Spin Endorsement and got to experience the "Tailwheel Town Short Approach".

And my pal, Mike Macon showed up to help John and Ella with a little formation flying. I can't tell you how much I appreciate Mike's help when we need another airplane!  Something tells me that Ella will be back!
A new article on the Tailwheeler's Journal

Perhaps I'm humoring myself, but I like to think that my readers are an educated bunch who love to read.  And that is why I've chosen to treat you to a new book review!  This time it's something quite unusual.  "The Doughnut Boy" is a fascinating offering from Mike Dennis.

Mike, with his research assistant, Gayle Crowder, traced the
 background of Mike's father and the result is one of the most unusual books you will ever read.  Get comfortable in your nicest easy chair and take the time to get into this great read. Enjoy "The Doughnut Boy".

In two weeks, the next article will be "Prop Slingin', a Specialty".  It's a fascinating story of a little-known specialty of a friend of mine... and I think you're really going to like it!
An older article worth another look...
What a coincidence!  This week's older article is from one of my very favorite writers, Gayle Crowder.  It's #62 "Simple Things.  It's a wonderful story that makes a statement about modern life.  By the way, I'm very happy to report that Gayle, much to her
 presumed  regret, has agreed to be my editor for The Doughnut Boy Press on my new book , "Airshow Pilot", soon to be published. 

The Tailwheeler's Journal is proud to team with Oregon Aero in our quest to promote safer pilots through  development of greater flying skill.
