The Last Two Weeks at Tailwheel Town
The new syllabus that was started for the LLT Scholarship winners is now a reality. Judy Birchler from Ladies Love Taildraggers has presented two scholarships for it.

I think we're going to have a lot of fun with it.  If you're interested in finding out a little more about the new syllabus, head for the "Flight Instruction" page on  www.tailwheelersjournal.com .  I've changed it to reflect the new course.

Aden Kailin.
Aden has been fighting the weather but will be the first to run through the new course.  I think he and Taylor Edwards will be very happy with it. 

Taylor Edwards had his course interrupted but is ready to resume.
A New Article on the Tailwheeler's Journal

A Sikorsky HH52A like the one featured in this week's article.
" Midair" is this week's new article. I guess that even that name strikes fear in every aviator's heart.  This is the true story as I recall it from my days in the Coast Guard.
An Older Article Worth Another Look...

My son, Hooper in the front seat with his CFIG, Dale Masters in the back.
This week's older article is "Who needs a glider rating?" in case you missed it.  I still maintain that glider flight is really useful for the power pilot... it's just been made complicated to get the rating, but who needs the rating. You just need a little glider time and maybe to solo.  Forget the rating!  

Happy Swooping,
