We recommend that you purchase and study “The Compleat Taildragger Pilot.” You should bring comfortable shoes appropriate for flying, no flip-flops or boots. We recommend bringing a light jacket as we occasionally fly with the door down and a light jacket can be handy. We provide a headset if you don’t bring your own.
C3 Tailwheel students fly a 2001 PA-18 Supercub on 31" Alaskan Bushwheels. This is an
authentic back country flying machine! You will experience grass and pavement takeoffs and
landings around the highland lakes area in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This is pure stick &
rudder flying and always makes for an incredible Adventure.
This is a 2-Day course with about 8-hours in the cockpit, a true adventure endorsement.

We have built a network of places to land off airport and have a variety of difficulty to meet your skill level. Take your flying to the next level and leave the pavement behind.
"I'd always wanted to fly a tail dragger; I wish I hadn't waited so long. It really is true stick and rudder instinctual flying and I wish I'd started 20 years ago." - Jeffery Sanders
"Tres was an AWESOME back country instructor. I've been flying more than 30 years and I couldn't believe how much fun flying low and slow could be. I highly recommend C3." - Jim Smith
