Many people find the skills developed while learning to fly a tailwheel airplane are useful skills for other types of aircraft.
TCMG uses a 1948 Luscombe 8E for this type of training, an airplane powered by a 85HP engine pushing it along at 110 MPH at 2300 RPM which represents about 65% available power.
The airplane is very responsive and becomes a delight to fly once the student becomes accustom to the control response.
The student will develop proficiency in takeoffs and landings on grass was well as hard surface in various wind conditions leading to a high level of confidence in their ability to safely fly in those types of conditions
Typical time takes about ten hours to complete but many students have completed the course in as little as five hours.
