The quality of a product is a function of its input. At TacAero we strive to create the best possible product, the aviator. This outcome can only be achieved with a competent instructor and the appropriate platform. We teach in conventional gear (tailwheel) aircraft because it is the best platform to conduct ab initio flight training. Tailwheel aircraft demand a level of control in all axes that simply doesn't exist in a tricycle configuration. Through the principle of forgiveness, a tricycle gear airplane develops habitual complacency. The nature of a tailwheel aircraft necessitates precision, teaching an airman awareness and positive control. The combination of skillful instruction in the appropriate platform allows TacAero to succeed in its mission; the development of a first-rate aviator. TacAero offers intro flights for $100.
