Tailwheel Undercarriage (TWU)

Description

A Tail Wheel Endorsement (TWU) will let you fly aircraft with a tail wheel instead of the standard tricycle undercarriage. You will achieve a far greater awareness of Centre of Gravity, slide-slipping and crosswind take-offs and landings, and let’s face it, flying a taildragger is just great fun! The tailwheel endorsement is an excellent introduction to aerobatic flying as most aerobatic aircraft are taildraggers. If you are building an experimental taildragger, do your TWU endorsement prior to your first flight.
