So I am getting the bug to fly. I have lived in AK for 41 years and its time to venture out on my own in the air.
I am not a pilot, yet. My plan is to buy a good trainer plane. I am thinking a tail dragger and something affordable to start with. I can get the Super cub when I learn hot to fly good enough to need one.
Anyway, I am looking for advise as to what tail dragger would be a good fit for a beginner.
I have looked and read a lot about the Citabria's (all versions) and it seems like a good plane to start with.
There a several 7eca's out there that are in the $30,000 range. is that something to consider?
There are also some 7gsbc's for sale but the price jumps up t0 $50,000 and up.
The J3 is an option also but not sure about the small HP and flying from the back seat.
If you have any advise please chime in.
