to The Tailwheeler’s Journal.
I’m really gratified at the reaction we’ve been getting to “Multiple Landings” and to “Slaloms”. These two videos have been a real boon to the teaching of both maneuvers and our students are really benefiting from being able to see them. We’ll be preparing some other “How-To’s” in the future. I better remind everyone that the maneuvers taught in those two videos, as well as virtually all the maneuvers taught at Tailwheel Town are described in “Brian’s Flying Book”. You can order a PDF download at The Tailwheeler’s Mercantile. It’s only ten bucks! How can you go wrong?
This week’s article is about that always memorable first solo. But this one features a skydive out of a balloon. That should give it a different twist. I hope you enjoy it!
Oh, and also, remember that you can still order our CD, “Nuts from a Blind Squirrel”!
The CD is still at the Tailwheeler’s Mercantile in case some of your ungrateful friends or relatives neglected to give you one! If you’d like to have a copy of “Nuts from a Blind Squirrel” on either CD or Flash Drive, just go to the Tailwheeler’s Mercantile and you’ll see a spot from which you can order.
Now more about the Tailwheeler’s Journal:
This site is the place where you can find videos and articles that will help you challenge your flying skills and become a better stick and rudder airman.
The Tailwheeler’s Journal began as a series of short articles that Brian Lansburgh sent to about 100 pilots and other interested people who requested them via email. We soon realized that many of these articles could be produced as short videos demonstrating challenging flying techniques that are mostly applicable to Tailwheel airplanes. It’s all about challenge and practice.
We’ve expanded the concept to include our “Plane and Pilot” features that allow our viewers to meet some interesting pilots and their airplanes.
Email us if you’d like to receive the Tailwheeler’s Journal monthly articles and be informed of new additions to the Tailwheeler’s Journal video collection.
Remember, Brian is available to work with you, whether to add a Tailwheel Endorsement to your qualifications or to simply add to your skills in mountain flying, spin recognition or crosswind technique (all tailwheel endorsements include a Biennial Flight Review).
