Quality Tailwheel Training.
We specialize in tailwheel training. This is all we fly all year long!
Most pilots will require 8 to 12 hours of dual instruction to achieve proficiency as you will experience all aspects of Tailwheel aircraft flying. Awaken your feet and get your Tailwheel endorsement!
First we’ll get you comfortable in the airplane and work on stick and rudder skills at altitude. Slow flight, steep turns and stalls are on the menu! Getting used to the airplane in different configurations, knowing its flight envelop and how it responds is very important as it will make you comfortable and build your confidence up.
Second, you will practice take off and landings at the airport. This is a big chunk of the training as many different scenarios need to be practiced! From three points and wheel landings to crosswinds, slips, soft and short field take off and landings. You will hone your skills on big paved runways and then we’ll take you into ever smaller grass strips. While challenging it is also very rewarding.
Ultimately, it will make you a better pilot because you have to “fly the airplane” at all times! You will discover another aspect of aviation outside airports and controlled airspace.
We provide Tailwheel Dual Instruction in our Luscombe 8E, Cessna 120, Citabria 7KCAB, Boeing Stearman PT-17 or Cessna 195 as well as in your airplane(s) too! Our instructors can provide training tailored to your needs as long as it’s a taildragger…
