Conventional Gear - Flying a Taildragger

The author, David Robson, has been flying taildraggers for forty-five years, and puts his vast experience to excellent use in this book. Taildraggers demand exceptional piloting skills, and the author explains simply and clearly, but in depth, exactly how to fly any aircraft with conventional gear, whether antique, warbird or modern. Beginning with the theory and dynamics of the tail wheel airplane, the book goes on to describe flight techniques, ground ops, takeoff, wind effects, low level flying, approach and landing, etc. It then goes on to look at specfic taildraggers, such as Austers, Tiger Moths, Pitts etc, with pilots' accounts of memorable flights. 210 pages, illustrated throughout.
