2020 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Scholarship Fund

Welcome to the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarship Fund. Please join me in this effort to enable more women to become taildragger pilots.  A donation of any amount to this 2020 Scholarship Fund is very much appreciated. 

The ability to fly a taildragger opens a world of possibilities, improves flying skills, leads to more tailwheel CFIs, and of course, it's just fun! With the number of women pilots still hovering around 7% of the pilot population, the world needs more female pilots.  To foster top-notch flying skills and promote general aviation and professional flying, I'd love to see more ladies behind the stick (or yoke) of a Homebuilt, Classic or Antique taildragger. 

Members and friends of LadiesLoveTaildraggers have a tradition of 'paying it forward'. Support happens by making a donation to this GoFundMe campaign, by mentoring new and existing tailwheel pilots and by constantly encouraging more people to fly a taildragger. 

Over the last few years we've awarded many scholarships to women who are passionate about flying. And best part, many of our scholarship winners continue on to become taildragger CFIs themselves!

My goal is to continue our tradition by awarding more scholarships to women pilots in early 2020. Only with your help is that possible. 

Beyond this GoFundMe campaign, we still need CFIs willing and able to donate an aircraft and/or flight instruction to our cause.  Please contact me if you'd like more information.
