Formation Flying

Tailwheel undercarriage or conventional undercarriage is a design feature which allows pilots to fly more advanced and manoeuvrable aircraft such as the Super Decathlon, Pitts Special and the Extra. This design feature requires pilots to be more attentive to handling the aircraft during take off and landing as well as taxiing. It is an excellent way to further increase your skills and confidence.

Tail Wheel Endorsement

The Constant Speed Unit (CSU) is the design feature that more powerful and efficient aircraft use in order to better utilise the power produced by the engine. The unit allows the propeller blade to change its angle of attack to take a more effective stroke through the air and to utilise the torque of the engine more efficiently.
