    Default Pacer for instruction?

    Is there anyone in this group that instructs in a Pacer on a regular basis? Thoughts on putting it on the line for tailwheel endorsements?

    It wouldn't be my first choice. A cub, champ or citabria is more forgiving of a student's mishandling. I've given a lot of tailwheel endorsements in a champ, but it's harder to stay ahead of a student in the Pacer. Just my opinion

    I'd agree on all counts, just wondering if anyone is doing it.

    A flight school at Scappoose Oregon (Near Portland) did tailwheel training in a Pacer.
    It has been damaged at least twice.

    I would say it is not the best candidate for average pilot or new student to learn tailwheel.
