From the beginning of aviation, pilots have learned to overcome the challenge of the tail-wheel. A unique style of flying that traditionally brings out the “hands and feet” in someone. Otherwise, it opens up a world of wonderful aircraft such as the Piper Cub, Pacer and Super Cub series as well as Taylorcraft, Champion, Ballanca and Cessna variants. The new types of aircraft able to be flown are endless! Traditionally, tail-wheel flying brings pilots back to the literal grass-roots of flying. During training we prefer to show new tail pilots different situations including grass and paved strips as well as the different wind components and the fundamental difference between the 2 and 3 point landing. Utilizing the maximum performance of the aircraft, we will fly short and soft field landings and take-offs as well. While there is no tail-wheel rating in Canada, in order to fly such an aircraft, professional instruction is heavily recommended. As well, in order to be insured on such an aircraft, tail-time is usually required. Typically, someone is able to pick up the basic understanding of a tail-wheel component as well as the basic layout and running of the aircraft within a 10 hour time frame. Typically, an hour of briefing is required before the first flight to show the differences of the aircraft and tail vs. nose-wheel flying.
