Flying tailwheel: The checkout
According to author Rick Durden: Last July I wrote an introduction to tailwheel flying. It went into those hot-button items a fledgling tailwheel pilot needs to keep in the forefront of consciousness when coming down final in a tailwheel airplane. Let's consider it "Tailwheels, Part I." With this article, I'll go through what you should expect to learn and master in the course of a tailwheel checkout. Next month, I'll put together a Part III to the series and explore whether a three-point or wheel landing is better from an operational safety standpoint.
