Tail wheel 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.
There are many considerations that need to be mindful of when flying aircraft with a tail wheel and these skills and knowledge will be of significant benefit to your everyday flying.
Our tail wheel training is conducted in a Super Decathlon and successful completion of this endorsement as well as completion of the Aerobatics course will allow pilots the opportunity to fly advanced aerobatic aeroplanes.
Costs: As standards of flying vary between pilots some will achieve the required standard before others so the amount you pay will vary depending upon your competency. The Tail Wheel Course is based on a minimum of 6 hours and 6 long briefings charged at our standard rates.
