Need Tailwheel Rating on Citabria or C180/185

Unread post by s34ial » Tue Feb 12, 2019 4:46 pm

Hi all.


I'm looking at doing some time on a Citabria or C180/185 or similar characteristics. I have only have 7.2 hours on a DHC1 MK2 Chipmunk and need a tailwheel endorsement.
I am looking for an aircraft and instructor that could be available to give me training between the 22nd of March till the 11th of April.

Please send me a message if you can help. I'm not here to waste anyone's time.

Thank you very much.

Kind Regards

From where are you? I know of Fantini that can give you a rating on the big C180(same airframe as C185)

Thanks for the reply LampiesJR. I have contacted Fantini already. I am South African working abroad. I was living in George area.
