Great DVD! But go train with him too!
Excellent DVD, but if you can get to Andover, N.J. To train with Damian, you really should! I’ve had one lesson towards my tailwheel rating and he’s already tuned me up and found some areas I need to improve on.
Pic training with Damian in Piper Cub. Awesome!!

Pros: Video and sound are very good - HD. They are well produced and edited and the content is straight to the point. Includes classroom as well as lots of flight time. As a student pilot who purchased a Citabria to train, these videos are extremely helpful. I re-watch these after my flights to resolve issues and prepare for the next flight. If you are a student or a seasoned pilot considering a taildragger endorsement I recommend both videos. They will prepare you how the plane will react, save you stick time, and maybe even prevent you from bending your plane.

Pros: Good information on the ground school portions, lots of cub action! Cons: I gave this 3 stars instead of 2 because it does contain some good information. My biggest gripe is durring the flight portion of the videos, the in cockpit views usually show shots of the instructor or the student's face. Or shots from the groud showing the manuver. There are few shots that show POV from the cockpit. I purchased this video set hoping that it would have more in cockpit views to familiarize myself with how the mauvers look from the cockpit. While they do show this in the diagrams, if it had POV shots, it would make these videos a 5-star

Pros: Excellent intro to Taildraggers, both basic and complex aspects. I'm guessing it will pay for itself in reduced flight time required to master the various techniques. Cons: None.

Pros: These DVD's are the best "how to" videos for learning to operate tail wheel airplanes that I have watched. You could save a lot of time and money on your tailwheel endorsement if you have these videos in your library. Cons: None noted Excellent DVD's!

Content was beyond expatations. Well produced. Probably the only videos that I've watched over and over absorbing the content more with each viewing.
