The Last Two Weeks at Tailwheel Town
Many thanks to Walt Lasecki of Outlaw Aviation for letting me use his nice Cessna 140 while mine is undergoing re-build.  And to Elana Gordon, who, after a long period of not flying, has decided to get current. Wow, what a talent she is!  I'm delighted to have someone who is so good to really concentrate on.

A visit from J.R.  Luper has been a lot of fun and we've been putting up with the construction at the Madras Airport to get J.R. his tailwheel endorsement. He's a high time professional pilot and flight instructor and we've been having a great time.

And, speaking of great times, Seth Hoffstetter has been flying with me and we've been having a great time.  I've rarely had an applicant with such a great appetite for learning!  Below is Seth and Janet's dawg, "Mickie"

A New Article on the Tailwheeler's Journal  
"The Tailwheel Town Landing" gets into a little detail about how we differ from Acme and why our applicants get so good.  The answer is simple:  They get a lot more practice because of their small patterns.  Yeh, those would be the patterns that the whuffos just hate to see us do!
One of those maneuvers:  The landing in a turn at Sisters.

The Older Article
#71, The Briar Patch and the Comfort Zone" is a pretty good accompaniment to the "Tailwheel Town Landing".  There's only one way to find out. And that's to read it!
