Professionally prepared and presented

  • By Mark from Clearwater FL USA on Monday, February 18, 2013
  • Pros: Logically presented, very thorough.
  • Review: A very fine product, full of excellent instruction; I'll be reviewing it often for tail wheel flight.......

Excelent training program

  • By Andrew from NJ, USA on Wednesday, August 08, 2012
  • Pros: Informative, concise, to the point.
  • Review: I would like to recommend this DVD to anyone who is up to the tailwheel challenge. Informative and concise instructions, as well as attention to details makes this training program worth the price.
    After watching this DVD multiple times I have signed up for lessons with Damian. He is an excellent instructor. I am learning a lot and I am having fun. I love it!
    P.S. Actual landings are a bit more challenging than they appear in the video :)

DVD Makes Instructor's Job Easier

  • By Monte from Waterford WI USA on Tuesday, August 23, 2011
  • Pros: Well done, easy to understand,
  • Review: Hi, Thumbs up folks. I am an Ag Pilot and in the fall/winter season, teach at an Ag Flying School in Bainbridge GA. Many "ag pilot wanna be's" come to the school with zero flying time. These students start in tail wheel aircraft right from the start. In the first hour of ground school, I let them watch "Tailwheel 101 Transition Training". This is not really transition training as they start in a tailwheel from day one. But the Tailwheel basics are informative and give them a good introduction, which makes my job easier. The video is really well done. Thank you for a great product. Monte Bowling, Tailwheel Instructor

I will recommend this book to others

  • By Clemens from Dallgow-Doeberitz Germany on Thursday, October 21, 2010
  • Pros: Good theoretical explanations followed by good practice examples
  • Review: This DVD provides comprehensive but also detailed lessons about all aspects of flying a tailwheel airplane. I am a pilot with a tailwheel endorsement, but the Video Lessons helped me to significantly improve my skills, especially for the Wheel landing. The comments of the instructor during the inflight scenes are good, but I would like to see in parallel the stick and rudder work in the cockpit, to get a better feeling when, how far and how fast the the control levers are moved.

Great Way to Understand Tailwheel Flying

  • By Fred from Sutton MA USA on Tuesday, August 03, 2010
  • Pros:
  • Review: While this is not a Hollywood production it was a very good attempt to produce a concise approach to providing the aspects of flying a tailwheel. I had 11 hrs in a tailwheel before I watched and learned some new things as well as having a few things cleared up which gave me a better understanding why certain things happen and what to do when they happen. Cost less than an hour of instruction cant go wrong and you can take the lesson over and over again @ no charge!

Fly it all the way to engine shutdown

  • By Phantom Flyer Ross from Fort Myers FL USA on Monday, July 26, 2010
  • Pros: Excellent presentation and content
  • Review: I think this tailwheel instructional course is outstanding. It was very thorough and covered the subject very well,ie the basics, the challenges one might face, cross winds, and the like. To be honest I didn't really appreciate all the stuff one needs to know to fly a tailwheel machine.

DVD is good, but case was damaged..

  • By A Customer on Monday, April 26, 2010
  • Pros: Very informative, interesting, and high quality production.
  • Review: The DVD is done very well. It is very informative, and the presentation of material is both interesting and high quality. However, my copy arived with a broken case. Not a big problem, but for the money, I would expect it to be perfect.
