He Lynn, from instructor to instructor, feel free to come get a taildragger

Gliders are an option too.
To place it in perspective, flying a single engine is like VBasic 
programming.
Flying a glider is like writing a kernel module...   ;-)

That's why I became CFI, CFIG, and I am working on my 'double II'
When I grow up and make some money I'll pursue float planes and helicopters.
