The November meeting for the Daytona Ninety-Nines was successful and educational. The morning started off with some Tailwheel flying at Carolina Anderson’s property. Special thank you to Carolina Anderson and Niara Petralanda for allowing the Daytona Ninety-Nines to fly in their tailwheels.

During the meeting we discussed our website, scholarships, and expanding our social media. We decided to start an instagram account so be sure to follow us on instagram @Daytona Ninety-Nines. We urge any CFIs to register on the Ninety-Nines website so those looking for an instuctor have an easier way to find a CFI.

After the meeting Carolina Anderson taught us about tailwheel flying and how it can defer from flying other airplanes. We learned that a proper crosswind correction is very important when landing and taking off in a tailwheel. The ground lesson was very eduactional and the meeting overall was successful. The next meeting will be at Tomlinson Aviation and we will be doing helicopter rides.

Please comment what you learned from tailwheel flying and the ground lesson.
