Congratulations to AeroDynamic’s newest private pilot! George Tuma completed his checkride in Citabria 1806G with examiner Scott Rohlfing today and earned his “license to learn.” George will soon take his son flying, and after getting a nosedragger checkout in our Cessna 172s, he will also take his whole family out for fun. Well done!!

Meet our newest tailwheel instructors ~

After much training and the thrills associated with fixing taildragger maneuvers gone wrong, our CFIs Jason and Andrew both earned the privilege of teaching tailwheel from the backseat. There’s nothing quite like climbing into the rear of a Citabria to teach someone the art of flying stick and rudder. Well done to both of them for their hard work in learning to truly ‘fly the airplane.’
