Tail Wheel Transition

The Tail Wheel Transition course is great for converting pilots in tricycle landing gear aircraft to conventional or tail wheel aircraft. The course can be taught at any level for single engine, land aircraft.


  • After completing the course pilots will receive a Tail Wheel training log book endorsement certifying them to fly tail wheel aircraft.
  • This endorsement will follow them throughout all licenses and ratings.
