About

n2978nWhat is the meaning of this?

Taildraggers, Inc. is here for the purpose of sharing a love of tailweel aircraft.  There are thousands of aircraft out there, and thousands of pilots to fly them, but there is a certain element of cool when it comes to flying a taildragger.

This website is meant to be a combination photo gallery, webzine, forum, and link exchange for the tailwheel aviation enthusiast.  The galleries are my own, the forum is free for all to use, and I will be adding more webzine articles in the future.  Content contributions are greatly appreciated!  If you would like to write an article, or have your website featured here, send me an email at the address below.

When I was learning to fly, I took my very first lessons in a Citabria.  I later switched to a Cessna 152 to save a few bucks, but that was short lived.  I returned to taildraggers, and did my first solo in a Bellanca Super Decathlon, N2978N (see above).  To finish my private pilot’s license, I had to transition to the Cessna 172, but I never lost my passion for flying the taildraggers.

I’m a relatively low time pilot, but I have flown the Citabria, Super Decathlon, J-3 Cub, Steen Skybolt, RV-6, RV-8, Aviat Husky, Cessna 195, and Super Cub.  I’ve been along for the ride in EAA’s Ford Trimotor, and even had the chance to sit in the all-wood cockpit of the DeHavilland Comet replica at Ohskosh.

As I work to grow this site, I will update with my own personal experiences.  However, I would love to be able to post the stories of other pilots.  If you have an interesting story you’d like to share, please shoot me an email at the address below.

Look for continuing updates over time.  I have a lot of ideas, but only so much time to put them into motion.

Thanks for visitng,
