When landing a taildragger, all that matters is you touchdown straight - no drift/crab. You want to make sure your wreckage goes straight down the runway...

Welcome to taildraggers.com!

So, what is a "taildragger"? It's an airplane with a tailwheel - the small wheel under the tail, rather than a under the nose. It's a very minor physical difference, but oh what huge differences this causes during takeoff, landing, and taxiing! Check out our documentation section for all the details.

The term "taildragger" has been firmly rooted in the aviation lexicon for decades and is affectionately used as a positive nickname by pilots and non-pilots alike to describe airplanes with a tailwheel.

Enjoy your flying privledges?

If so, thank the AOPA...  It's very important to realize that general aviation is under assult from the most evil form of extremist nut cases - politicians, and the misguided activists that stirr them up.  The AOPA deserves much credit for the flying privledges we have today, not only in the United States, but in many other countries as well (they are an international organization).  Please- if you are not already an AOPA member, join today!  Visit their web site at www.aopa.org.

Ditto for the EAA, especially in recent years.  If you are not an EAA member, visit their website at http://www.eaa.org and join this great organization today as well.
