Tailwheel Course

Some say, this is where the real flying is... Whether it is true or not, flying a tailwheel plane expands your flying horizons and is a lot of fun! An almost must-do for commercial pilots, very much recommended for everyone!

Learning to fly a tail wheel aircraft can be one of the most enjoyable and challenging experiences available to general aviation pilots. CFC has both American Champion Citabria and Super Decathlon aircraft. Go ahead and practice those stick and rudder skills. From circuits to advanced airwork, or even landing on a beach. If you dare.
