1st Flight Lesson Drama
Max was in the middle of his very first flight lesson when his instructor blacked out on his shoulder and would not awaken. In a panicked state he contacted ATC calling mayday. After he told tower that it was his first lesson he was advised to keep the wings straight and level while tower personnel got someone familiar with the aircraft. Eventually descending from 6,200 feet he brought the aircraft in for a bumpy but safe landing into Perth’s Jandakot airport. He was awarded his First Solo Certificate!

About Tailwinds

Here's why Tailwinds is your trusted source for pilot gifts....we love flying and all things aviation!

Hi! I’m Nancy and this is a photo of me from the 1992 Around the World Air Race. I’m 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 we’re 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!

It is also why we excel at helping you find the perfect gift for a pilot.

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.
