Tailwheel Conversion Course (Rating)

Aircrafts with a tailwheel take a little more finesse and practice to take off and land. Mastering the art of handling a taildragger is not too difficult — but it’s an important skill that requires specialist training.


On the Tailwheel conversion course you’ll become competent enough with your handling skills to get the (tailwheel) aircraft safely in and out of various landing strips. Upon completing the course you’ll be able to fly a whole new category of aircraft.
