Landing a Microlight Tail-dragger
Until a few years ago, all Thrusters were tail-draggers, these articles examine how to learn to land them.
The Thruster was originally an Australian design, which became naturalised in the UK. It is reasonable, therefore, that we go to Australia for guidance on how to fly the things.
Until his death in 2009, Tony Hayes ran the Thruster Operator Support Group in Australia and latterly, primarily concerned himself with writing and publishing Ultralight Pilot and Ultralight Instructor Training Manuals. Tony was also the resident CFI for the Brisbane Valley Leisure Aviation Centre.
As a result of questions asked on the ThrusterClub Yahoo! Group, Tony started to post a series of articles, explaining the essentials of successful microlight tail-dragger landings. He kindly allowed us to copy these articles here.
