Tail Wheel Training & Endorsement
At Gulf Coast Aero we specialize in tail wheel training. We currently train in a 1941 Piper J5. If you are looking for something different and are due for a flight review. Spend some time flying the J5. Most pilots require about 5 hours to get a tail wheel endorsements. You will be familiar with three point landings and wheel landings. After 5 hours most pilots feel very comfortable flying the J5.
Re-live the excitement of learning how to fly again. You will fall in love with this plane. Unlike the older brother; the Piper J3 Cub; you fly solo from the front seat. Please give us a call to schedule your appointment.
