I’ve been a taildragger pilot (and a CFI) for nearly 20 years. I kept current in rented/borrowed aircraft for much of that time, although the tailwheel rentals in our area are becoming more scarce. I gave my husband his tailwheel endorsement about 5 years ago in a borrowed Stinson S108-2. We didn’t have anything to stay proficient in, so we bought a ’46 J3 Cub in 2010; it’s great fun! Last fall, we bought “new to us” ’91 Waco YMF5 for our next great adventure- giving biplane rides in Northeast Indiana.
