Hey group- I recently purchased a Wichawk (first plans built plane) from the Blanton Family (original designers) in Wichita. Currently in Iraq, but bought while on leave. Will be looking for taildragger instruction in Tacoma Washington Area in March. One recommendation was Mr. George Kirkish, of Vashon Island Air. Any thoughts? He seems to have a great deal of experience.Can anyone comment on this insturctor from experience. He seems very knowledgeable indeed. Don't have a lot of money after purchase. I have 90 hours of Cessna time, and now want to only fly taildragger.


Thanks, Major Jarrett A.K.A. Virtuehawk
