Tailwheel Training

Tailwheel Training in the 8KCAB Decathlon (150HP Fixed Pitch)

Getting Started

A Tail Wheel Endorsement (TW) will let you fly aircraft with a tail wheel instead of a tricycle undercarriage. You will achieve a far greater awareness of Centre of Gravity, slide-slipping and crosswind take-offs and landings, what those foot rests are really for and let’s face it, flying a taildragger is just great fun! The tailwheel endorsement is an excellent introduction to aerobatic flying as most aerobatic aircraft are taildraggers.
