Program Information

School:Harv's Air
Field of Study:Aviation/Airway Management and Operations
Description:Tailwheel flying is more demanding than flying a tricycle gear airplane because the geometry of a tailwheel airplane’s landing gear is less stable than that of a nosewheel airplane.

Sound scary? Sound too tough for a beginner? It isn’t when you consider that hundreds of thousands of people learned to fly in Piper Cubs and Champs just like these. Learning to fly tailwheel is a lot like learning to drive a manual transmission: If you learn the manual first, it’s simple to go to the automatic transmission later. Learn tailwheel first, and nose wheel airplanes are a piece of cake. It’s no harder to learn from the beginning, and in the end you will be a better pilot.
