Each week, we go through dozens (and sometimes hundreds) of reader-submitted photos and pick the very best to share with you on Thursday mornings — and one photo that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our "Picture of the Week."

Our picture of the week shows instructor Tamara Griffith ATP, CFI, CFII, MEI, AGI, IGI, A&P with IA in her flight school's newest aircraft, a PA18-180. The school, Fox Aviation International Inc. in Justin, Texas, offers all levels of training from PPL thru multi-commercial. Griffith is also now offering tailwheel training and advanced tailwheel training. "We started the school accidentally," Griffith says. "I specialize in tailored flight training program." This was taken at 16X Propwash Airport where Griffith was out enjoying a moment alone in the Supercub. "Sometimes even the instructor needs some solo time," she says.
