Many years ago I got my private pilot and ground instructor license, but hadn't been flying for awhile. Plus, I never flew a tail dragger, always tri-gear. Thanks go to Floyd, Elden, and Gene for getting me up to experience flying a tail dragger.
First flew in the white Aeronca below, then in the open cockpit red Pietenpole. Both of these give you a true appreciation of "real" flying. All photos at Kay Larkin Airport in Florida.
