I use one of the tailwheel transporters. Have a spare one for sale if you are interested. I can send you a picture, but the site is full. It is the blue one on Aircraft Spruce under Tailwheel Tow Bar $268.95 plus delivery. In perfect condition. Would take $150.00 FOB Warwich airport - Short flight for you.

Hi Bob,
I'll pass on the bargin price. After looking at Aircraft Spruce, I decided that I must be able to build a simple thing like that. ( maybe famous last words) .And that is why I asked for design experience. In the meantime, I have found what I believe to be the requisite materials laying around in my shop. This week we'll see. By the way, are you flying again ? Are you going to try to have the get-together at Warwich this year ? Thanks for your offer.

Hi Dale,

I looked at a lot easier designs but the tailwheel kept jumping out. Finally opted for one of the ones built on four wheels.

At the moment I am still unfortunately only flying with a licensed, current pilot along to be legally PIC. Kind of a pain, but keeps me in the air legally.

I will not be having the Warwick Fly In this year, but hope to meet up with you at some airport this Spring.

Cheers, Bob
