Tailwheel Conversion

The tailwheel conversion requires differences training to allow a PPL or LAPL holder to fly tailwheel aircraft.


Course Structure:

There are currently no ‘legal’ requirements for the tailwheel conversion. It is entirely up to the instructors’ discretion as to whether he/she feels you are competent to fly tailwheel aircraft. In general, most students will take anything between 3-5 hours to complete this training.



We suggest that training for the tailwheel conversion be carried out on our two seat 7ECA Citabria. You are, however, more than welcome to train on your own aircraft should you wish.
