Tailwheel: 101 Transition Training DVD

Save 15% when you buy the Tailwheel 101 and Tailwheel 201 DVD Combo!

The premiere study video for all pilots interested in getting their tailwheel endorsement, or for any tailwheel pilot who wants to learn a thing or two from the most widely recognized tailwheel expert in America, Damian DelGaizo.

Ride along with Damian and his student as she earns her tailwheel endorsement.  Each ground instruction segment is immediately followed by its real-world airplane demonstration to help reinforce the material and make pre-flight study sessions easy and efficient.

"Damian is one of the very few tailwheel instructors I routinely recommend to people wanting that kind of training so I'm not surprised to see that his DVD is probably the best instructional video ever produced on the subject.  If you want to fly tailwheel, do it right and go to the pros, and the quickest way to do that is through this video."  Budd Davisson, Plane & Pilot contributor and CFI.

Excelent training program
by Andrew from NJ, USA 

Pros: Informative, concise, to the point.
Cons: none
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 

Pros: Well done, easy to understand,
Cons: Can't think of any...don't believe I could have made a better one.
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 

Pros: Good theoretical explanations followed by good practice examples
Cons: None
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 

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 

Pros: Excellent presentation and content
Cons: none
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 from WI 

Pros: Very informative, interesting, and high quality production.
Cons: Expensive.
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.

Good video, however...
by David from Temple TX USA 

Pros: Good production quality. Good explanations of the differences in tailwheel and trigear aircraft.
Cons: Overpriced. Not enough shots looking out of the cockpit.
Review: There is a lot of good information in this DVD related to why a tailwheel airplane acts differently on the ground than a trigear airplane. The quality of the video and the production quality are quite good. However, I would like to have seen more in the cockpit shots during the landing sequences. My personal trials and tribulations in learning tailwheel landings has centered on the "sight picture" looking out of the cockpit. I feel the DVD is a little overpriced.

Nice introduction and summary of major concepts
by A Customer from Newtown PA USA 

Pros: Good content from a highly experienced pro
Cons: Expensive for the amount of content
Review: The DVD met my expectations. It could have been a bit longer. What was in there was great, but for the price (which is really high), it should have covered more.

great intro to tailwheel flying
by Marcel from Naperville IL USA 

Pros: interesting to watch, good explanations (ground school)
Cons: could hit a little more advanced topics, skills
Review: I loved watching this video to get an introduction to tail wheel flying. It is made in an interesting way as you basically get an abbreviated third party view on somebody going through a tail wheel endorsement. However, the video could incorporate a little more advance techniques and skills.

Get's you inside the airplane for "pitch attitudes"
by Cory the Citabria 7KCAB pilot from Ann Arbor MI USA 

Pros: Easily see, visualize & understand tailwheel principals
Cons: You can't always train and fly in a beautiful Top Cub. Also more info given on expected time-frame of training it takes or # of landings to expect for tailwheel endorsement.
Review: This DVD has great scenery and great airplanes (Top Cub, etc.) which inspired me. I was able to re-watch the DVD over and over which helped me understand the principles and pitch attitudes, which helped, since the Citabria 7KCAB doesn't have as many gauges and instruments as the C-172 that I'm used to flying. Also I could "armchair" practice the 3-point landing or wheel landing while at home. Before beginning training, I probably watched the DVD about 10 times. Currently, I've completed 1.9 hours of actaul tailwheel instruction. My instructor said that I've progressed pretty quickly, and that I'm at a point where most of his students would normally take about 5 to 6 hours to reach.

Very informative
by Tom Whitemore from Healdsburg CA USA 

Pros: to the point / great visual instruction / interesting enough to view over, again and again
Cons: I didn't get a certificate for a free instruction at their school !!
Review: With the information and visual reference, I feel that I can try my hand with a Cub and have an idea what im going to get in return; A bit of challenge and a lot of fun! Good mix of instruction; they did a good job of keeping the classroom time short and sweet, and did a great job with the in-plane video instruction.
