I have been thinking about adding a tailwheel endorsement to my certificate, and after watching this DVD I feel that all I need is the signature in my log book. ... I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone thinking about getting a tailwheel endorsement.

Absolute necessity for any pilot making the leap into tailwheel training. This video is a fantastic stand-alone ground school. When used prior to training it allows you to have an understanding of tailwheel flying and will save you money. Great video presentation lets you see the maneuver while listening to the instructor on how to perform it. I strongly recommend this product.

Excellent mix of ground school and flight footage suitable for students to intermediate time tailwheel pilots. Overall video/sound quality was very good. The ground school section used some simple yet effective demonstrations to explain rudder pedal usage and gyroscopic forces. Watching this video helped reinforce the basic tailwheel principles that I have forgotten over time.
