Doug & the team we’re exceptional to work with. I did a Tailwheel conversion and some additional endorsements but will continue to return to work on Aerobatics. Great school!

Jonathan Webber

I had a fantastic time gaining my tail wheel undercarriage endorsement and spin flight activity approval. I could not have asked for a better training environment, the team at Archer falls provided wonderful hospitality and thanks to Doug’s instruction I am a more confident pilot. I highly recommend Stick ‘n Rudder to any pilot seeking tail wheel training and more.
