    Question Merrill Field CFI

    I am looking for a good certified flight instructor with lots of tail wheel time who operates at Merrill Field in Anchorage. In addition it would mostly be in my own airplane for my private pilot's license.
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Default Merrill Field CFI

    I like the guys at Land and Sea, I've been up with one of thier CFI's and I rent their C172. They have a Citabria, so I'm sure they can get you on the right path with a tailwheel.

    Shannon at land and sea is a great guy. Lots of tailwheel time. Not sure if he does students in their own plane but it never hurts to ask.

    Thumbs down Land and Sea

    I checked with Land and Sea. They do not teach in any aircraft except their own. I would like to find a teacher who has been at it a long time and has lots of tail wheel experience. I do not want to go with someone who is just building time.
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Bill Billinsley (sp) at mustang air has been teaching since the only way to start a plane was to handprop it. Off course Mustang air is at palmer municipal airport. I took a flight will Bill and I liked his instruction style a lot.

    Default Bill

    I think Bill teaches out of Palmer or Birchwood only. The airplane is at Merrill. Moving it is not an option.
