We provide excellent tail wheel courses. Flying Tailwheel aircraft is more challenging and more enjoyable than nose wheel. It is a skill that needs to be taught by an expert so that if the landing gets out of shape, you learn from it but the aircraft does not get damaged. Of course most schools choose to teach in an aircraft that is so benign that little real skill is actually required but this will bite you in the backside when you come to fly a more challenging type.
We teach in our 1946 Cessna 140. It is a fantastic aircraft and will teach you a lot. It demands that you learn the right lessons but when it does get out of shape, our instructors can recover easily. Once you have mastered the 140, other tailwheel aircraft will feel very easy. We also have a 1944 Argus for you to convert to after completing the course
Some students may require a little more time to reach our high standards.
