Tailwheel Aircraft – Back to the Basics

Our Citabria does not have a GPS, a glass cockpit, an air conditioner or even an autopilot. It is a VFR-only airplane that is designed for fun flying while challenging you to learn valuable “stick and rudder” skills. You will regain some of the basic flight and navigation skills so quickly forgotten in modern aircraft. Remember the terms “pilotage”, “dead-reckoning”, and “looking at a map”. We will reintroduce all these terms to you during the course of your training. You will get to land on grass runways and experience true “soft field” landings. If you have only flown tricycle gear airplanes, you are in for a real treat with the challenge and excitement of getting your tailwheel endorsement.

Location – Advanced Tailwheel Training in Houston, Texas

This airplane is available at the Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport in Conroe, Texas (KCXO), based at Galaxy FBO. This airplane is one of the only airplanes available in the North Houston area for tailwheel training.

Tailwheel Endorsement Training

Go back to the basics of aviation and learn how to fly a taildragger in the iconic Citabria tailwheel aircraft. If you’re already a pilot and you want to improve your stick and rudder skills, this is the way to do it while having fun. Also known as a conventional gear aircraft, a tailwheel airplane is, as any old-timer pilot would tell you, one of best ways to become a better pilot.
