Tailwheel Training

Grass AdventuresWe provide comprehensive and affordable tailwheel training (otherwise known as “conventional gear” training) for both experienced and new pilots in the Kansas City area.

The training will be tailored to your needs, whether you just need a quick proficiency sortie or a full program to obtain an endorsement in accordance with 14 CFR §61.31.

Tailwheel training is comprehensive: ground academics and theory, three-point & wheel landings, pavement and grass landings, crosswind landings, touch-and-go, go-around, focused instruction on coordination and control, and more.

All training is accomplished in a Bellanca Citabria 7ECA.

Solo tailwheel flights: If you meet the training (and minimum insurance) requirements, you can solo this aircraft.  It is not required to receive the tailwheel endorsement. With your endorsement, you can rent this aircraft for tailwheel flights in the future.

Nehemiah Aviation serves Leavenworth, Lansing, Atchison, Gardner, and other areas in and around Kansas City.  We can work with you to make this flight experience convenient to you!
