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 flight training goals in a safe, efficient, cost-effective manner.

Our primary instructor, Ryan, is currently employed as full time aerial photographer and he enjoys instructing part-time (usually just evenings and weekends) on the side. His background includes experience in a wide range of 40+ types of small aircraft, including a range of tailwheel aircraft, since 2003.

Ryan is available outside of his full-time employment’s hours by appointment. We are currently able to work with students in a Cessna 140 at Dallas Executive Airport and hopefully soon in an aircraft of our own. We are currently only accepting clients for flight reviews, tailwheel endorsements, or general proficiency training since we do not have access to a good primary trainer for private pilots at this time.

We charge by scheduled hourly blocks for all training and the current rate is $50/hr at our home field. Off home field but within 20 miles the rate is $60/hr. Other opportunities will be quoted based on location and duration. We reserve the right to charge differently as circumstances or risks dictate but will be up front with the client about it.
