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."

"I could not think of a better place to learn."

Trained with AFA for his tailwheel endorsement before filming the movie "Six Days, Seven Nights" in which he performed most of the actual flying himself in a deHavilland DHC-2 Beaver.
"DelGaizo deals in the realities of flying - bush and otherwise. He specializes in what counts when flying an airplane."
