    I’m looking for a place to rent a taildragger to do a tail wheel endorsement in. Is there anywhere I could rent one around Nebraska?

    They are few and far between.
    I fly out of GBR in Massachusetts. The next closest places I know of, personally, are in Maine and Virginia.

    There’s a good place in Mo with a Cessna 170 and a Citabria.

    East Coast Aero at KBED has a Super Decathlon now. And the Flight School at 7B3 has a J3

    Seems like a bit of a stretch to consider Dallas, TX to be "near Nebraska", lol.

    I had heard that the Decathlon was down, hard, for repairs. Just rumors and propaganda?
    I'll give them a call. I wanted to do my BFR in that plane this year.

    There are options in Tulsa at KRVS, but I wouldn't consider it to be close enough to mention.

    Depends where you live. I'm in north metro Atlanta, and there are two places that teach tailwheel within 30 miles.

    I fly with them out of KASH but can see all locations in the scheduler and I just checked and it's available. If you need me to check dates for your send me a message.
