The three parts of this book include: the theory and dynamics of a tailwheel aeroplane; the piloting techniques needed to safely operate a tailwheel aeroplane and a series of descriptions of what it is like to fly a selection of traditional and current tailwheel aeroplanes. The last section is edited by the author from contributions of pilots and airline captains with experience in the particular tailwheel aeroplanes covered.
Written in plain language with many ultra clear illustrations to explain the dynamics and techniques. 'Conventional Gear' provides a thorough foundation of knowledge for the pilot seeking a tailwheel endorsement. It presents the combined experience of thousands of flight hours by civilian and military pilots who grew up flying tailwheel aeroplanes.
