    Anyone know of CFI doing tailwheel training and endorsement in West Palm Beach Florida?

    I am looking for training to gain a tailwheel endorsement in the West Palm Beach Florida area. I have searched the internet and have only found one person but his plane will be down for engine repairs while I have the time in late March and early April to do some training. I don't have a plane so I would need an instructor with a plane. Does anyone have a recommendation or at least some names of instructor that would fit the need? Many thanks in advance.

    Tailwheels Etc... in Lakeland might be an option. They have a champ that might be good to get the endorsement in. You can stay in a hotel right near the airport and get this done in a weekend. Keep in mind the name of this place might be a bit misleading, they are oriented towards the 0-hero type programs but they have a couple of tailwheel guys who if they are still there, are good.

    Eddie, apologies getting back with the thread. I have been luck enough to arrange some training time in a Super Decathlon. One of the places with a Super Decathlon was taking it out of service for an engine overhaul, but luckily there was still one available with another guy. I am super excited to do this training.
