My last flight in a tailwheel aircraft was a while back, so whilst qualified to fly the Eurofox I was certainly not competent or current. There is only one place I know of offering training on a tailwheel Eurofox – G S Aviation at Clench Common. I had one day off work and needed 5 hours’ flying in 8 hours of daylight – cue a lovely day spent exploring the farm strips of Wiltshire and a visit to Wellesborne Mountford to experience a tarmac runway in a crosswind. Thank you Dave for your good humour! We managed 5 hours of stalls, steep turns, circuits, practice forced landings and cups of coffee at different venues! The Eurofox proved to be a lovely aircraft to fly, well harmonised but lacking drag on the final approach because it uses flapperons rather than separate ailerons and flaps. To get into shorter strips over obstructions a side slipped approach is necessary. The aircraft can achieve a very respectable rate of descent in a side slip, with an excellent view of your landing area all the way down to the flare…a very satisfying and addictive way of doing business. Great fun.
