Tail Wheel Training / Endorsement
Get your Tailwheel endorsement flying our American Champion 7KCAB Citabria. This is a great tailwheel trainer that is flown from the front seat making the forward visibility excellent for the pilot. Tailwheel training will improve your stick and rudder skills and make you a better pilot in all of the planes you fly. To earn your tailwheel endorsement, you'll learn 3 point landings, wheel landings and crosswind landings on grass and pavement. You'll also practice some basic skill building maneuvers such as stalls, steep turns and a few stick and rudder building exercises. We fly out of Seward (KSWT), that has a great grass strip and we can also use the grass at Crete and David City close by. This endorsement will usually require 8-12 hours of instruction on average but each individual may vary. The airplane rental is $150/hr and the instructor rate is $85/hr.
