TAILWHEEL
TRAINING

Tailwheel proficiency and skill opens a new world of to pilots. Increased prop clearance provides access to terrain few other vehicles can reach. Additionally the skills gained make pilots safer and more proficient across all aircraft types. TacAero has created programs that help students master the art of flight, producing safer, highly skilled aviators. There are no substitutes for tailwheel training and the skills acquired while learning. Our tailwheel endorsement and advanced training programs will be one of the best additions to your current skill set and not only make you a safer pilot but also open the door to a ton of fun.

TAILWHEEL
Endorsement

Our experienced instructors help each pilot develop skills in areas regarded as more challenging in a tailwheel due to the location of the aircraft’s center of gravity. Pilots gain proficiency in ground operations, three-point landings and wheel landings, power-on and power-off approaches, crosswind landings, and power-off precision landings. By course end, pilots earn a tailwheel endorsement if needed, and, more importantly, confidence in their ability to fly a tailwheel—and any airplane—with greater skill. The Basic course also sets a strong foundation for the techniques taught in our Advanced Tailwheel Operations Course.
Have you dreamed of flying a tailwheel, perhaps lured by images of airplanes in wild places? Would you like to learn the essential skills and finesse required to safely operate an aircraft with conventional gear? Whether you need a tailwheel endorsement or are endorsed but need a refresher, TacAero’s Basic Tailwheel Operations Course is a perfect place to begin, or to reunite you with, the adventure of flying tailwheel.

Advanced
Tailwheel

In our Advanced Tailwheel Operations Course, experienced tailwheel aviators hone their skills and master their craft. By recognizing subtle cues from the aircraft and combining authoritative yet smooth control inputs, you’ll start to experience the airplane’s full capability —often called upon in backcountry flying.

During this course you will learn advanced techniques for managing strong crosswinds, operating from short fields, and soft fields, and handling emergencies that may arise during critical flight profiles. You will master precision landings, with and without power, and touchdown where you intend—every time. Also, if you’re excited to experience big tires in remote locations (and who isn’t), this advanced training fosters the expertise necessary to progress to our backcountry courses. Prerequisites for this course are 50 hours tailwheel, 5 in the previous 90 days OR completed TacAero’s Basic Tailwheel Course.
