World's Oldest Licensed Pilot
Congratulations to Canadian pilot George Neal who set a record on June 2nd. George is the oldest active licensed pilot in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. At 96 and 194 days young, George was licensed in 1936, and has over 15,000 hours in 150 aircraft types. For much of his career George was a test pilot for de Havilland. But he still had time to home-build a Sopwith Pup! Kudos to George! Wishing you (more) Blue Skies & Tailwinds!

About Tailwinds
Hi! Im Nancy and this is a photo of me from the 1992 Around the World Air Race. Im holding what is left of a spinner from the Tailwinds World Flyer, a Piper PA-39 Twin Comanche. The rest of the spinner had crashed into the windshield leaving a 5 inch gaping hole as we were racing over southern France approaching Cannes. We had just flown over 12 hours from Nuuk, Greenland and were racing for first place. The sun had risen and fortunately I had put on my sunglasses so there was no eye damage as the glass flew into the cockpit and into my face. Such are the mishaps and adventures of cross country air racing. And adventure is one of the reasons why I love aviation!
Tailwinds began as a catalog operation in 1986 on the kitchen table of one of our founders, Marion Jayne. Marion was my mother, personal CFI, and pilot extraordinaire! She was the 12th woman in the United States to earn her ATP rating, and was honored as one of the top 100 aviators of the century at Kitty Hawk in 2003. We began Tailwinds because we wanted to offer products that represented the love of aviation and the celebration of flight. We’ve had tremendous growth since we published our first catalog, but our founding principles remain the same. Our goal is to provide a pleasant shopping experience featuring only quality products and top-notch customer service.
