"Just wanted to share with you a quick video I put together from my tailwheel training there back in the early spring. A ton of people have enjoyed this video and I continue to watch it in remembrance of all the fun I had learning with you guys. Thanks so much!"

A short movie highlighting the fun I had while obtaining my tailwheel endorsement at Andover Flight Academy in Andover, NJ. The owner Damian and my instructor John were both top notch guys with tons of experience. I'd suggest anyone wanting to get their endorsement to check these guys out.

"The instructor/student relationship that Damian fostered was very meaningful and the training I received was excellent. I highly recommend this training to all who have taildragger interest or a tailwheel aircraft in the flight department."

"Before I headed East, my colleagues and I joked about the idea of bush flying in New Jersey. We were wrong. Damian has access to airstrips that are challenging and an excellent introduction to bush flying. It's a great program."
