Compleat Taildragger

I read this book prior to obtaining a tailwheel endorsement. I felt the material was exemplary and reflected relevant aspects of tailwheel flying gleaned by the author over many years of tailwheel flying experience. I plan on re-reading the book now that I have a tailwheel endorsement and expect to gain an improving level of knowledge on the topic.

Excellent Book

Great book. Lots of good information. Great section for CFI's planning on giving tailwheel endorsements.
