Texas Tailwheel Flight Training

Texas Tailwheel is an independently owned & operated flight training provider currently operating in the Dallas area. Our goal is to help you reach your tailwheel flight training goals in a safe, efficient, cost-effective manner.

Our primary instructor, Ryan, is employed as full time aerial photographer and he enjoys instructing part-time (usually just evenings and weekends) on the side. Ryan’s background includes experience in a wide range of small aircraft, including a range of tailwheel aircraft over the last 16 years.

Our first aircraft, a Taylorcraft BC-12D

Our fleet has previously included aircraft such as the Taylorcraft BC-12D, Piper Colt, and a 1957 Cessna 172. Our last aircraft was a Cessna 120 that we sold in 2017. We are currently looking for another tailwheel trainer to lease or manage (Update – July 2019 – we may have one pending!).

Ryan is currently only available by appointment to instruct private owners in their aircraft. Ryan charges by scheduled blocks and the current rate is $50/hr at our home field. Off field the rate is $60/hr. We reserve the right to charge differently as circumstances dictate but will be up front with the customer.

To schedule a flight please leave a message at (469)-740-2222 or email us at: tailwheelflightinstructor@gmail.com

Below is a video of a student I soloed in a Piper Cub back in 2012 down in the San Antonio area.

If you have a tailwheel 65 or 85hp normal category two seat aircraft in the Dallas or surrounding area(s) that you would consider leasing to us for flight instruction, please contact us!
