Mastering The Tail Dragger: I have read all kinds of baloney about flying a tail
dragger, especially about test hopping a home built tail dragger. A 'tail dragger'
flies exactly as a 'nose roller' with the following exceptions. At any time the
plane is in contact with the ground, whether it is being taxied, is in its takeoff
roll and lift off, or is touching down and on the after landing rollout, different
control use is required and for very justifiable reasons. If you read and understand
the information in this short book, you will not need a check out to fly a tail dragger!
Like my other books, this one explains "how" and "why" the controls must be used as they are.
