to The Tailwheeler’s Journal.
The Tailwheeler’s Journal is proud to team with Oregon Aero in our quest to improve pilot safety.
Oregon Aero’s products not only enhance pilot comfort, but they also increase safety and “G” tolerance through their engineering of shock absorbing materials. Remember that every flier who completes a Tailwheel Endorsement or Stick and Rudder Master Class through the Tailwheeler’s Journal will receive a Headset Upgrade Kit compliments of Oregon Aero. Be sure to check out the Oregon Aero website. You’ll be drooling over some fantastic products.
This week’s article is “Where Are You Looking?”. Although it deals with a flying fundamental, it’s very possible that many more experienced fliers may benefit from it.
The second edition of “Brian’s Flying Book” is now available either directly through Lulu.com or via a link at the Tailwheeler’s Mercantile right here at the Tailwheeler’s Journal. We are so excited to finally be offering this latest edition as a hard copy to all those who have been asking for it. Included are some new photos, sections, and a wonderful forward from our friend Adm Mike Bowman. The Squirrels in the print shop told me that if you order today, you can get a copy in time for Father’s Day. Oh, and speaking of Squirrels, 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).
