About course:

Is a tailwheel endorsement necessary for flying for the airlines in the future? Nope. Are there a lot of amazing airplanes and opportunities that a tailwheel endorsement is required for? Yep. 

While the typical flight career may not require a pilot to carry a tailwheel endorsement, the skills that are developed while earning one are invaluable and will without a doubt help make anyone a measurably better pilot. Not only that, but the careers that become available to tailwheel pilots such as banner towing, aerobatic and warbird training are some great different choices if you’re still deciding how you plan to pursue aviation. Speaking of being different, a diversified pilot is a safer pilot. While learning to to fly a tailwheel you’ll learn to appreciate what a rudder can do you for you both in the air and on the ground, and you’ll find that crosswinds are a fun challenge to hone in your skills on any flight. Getting a tailwheel endorsement is arguably one of the most fun and rewarding accomplishments while learning to fly and you might be surprised by how often you’ll use the skills and concepts you learn while flying tricycle gear aircraft, I know I was!
