Video: tailwheel training in a Citabria

For a new pilot, tailwheel airplanes may seem intimidating and downright difficult to fly. After a little training, though, it becomes clear that they’re still just airplanes – they simply require a little more attention on the rudder pedals and some practice. In this video, you’ll get to see a pilot on his first tailwheel training flight. Watch him practice landings from inside and outside the cockpit, and hear the instructor’s helpful advice. After watching this, it’s easy to see why tailwheel airplanes are so addictive.
