  • Taylorcraft Solo today

    I have an accelerated student right now who wanted to start out right - in a taildragger.

    He soloed the Taylorcraft today. It was fun to watch and I'm happy to say that he did pretty well.

    Thought you might enjoy seeing some of the pictures.

      Well, since I have a deposit on her, that likely won't happen, BUT, I hope to either replace her with a sister ship that I can use for light sport training, or (I know, heresy) replace her with a 120/140 - which would only be so that I could work with private pilots in it exclusively. I'm totally sold on the value of the Taylorcraft, though. It's a great ship, a perfect tailwheel trainer, and fun to fly.
      With this guy I'm doing about 30 hours in the Taylorcraft and 10 in a Cessna 172 so that we can get the electronic navigation and night requirements knocked out.

        That sounds like it would save quite a bit of money for the student. Wish I could have done it that way.
