OK so it's still summer in Alaska and I want to get a tailwheel sign off...but, it's been over 12 months and I still haven't had a chance to do the night cross country to lift the night flying restriction from when I got my private license (long story).
It is my understanding that I can get the tailwheel endorsement, but won't be able to use it until I get the night flying restriction lifted. I liken it to having a current license but an expired medical exam, I have the license but can't use it.
I figure I could do the tail wheel now and then when it gets dark here in a month I can do my night cross country to lift the night restriction. THEN, I can actually fly with a current private pilot certificate and my tailwheel endorsement.
