Welcome to Tailwheel Adventures!

Let's meet the fleet & crew.

The Crew 

 

Our owner and Chief Pilot, Kevin Garcia, has been flying since he was 15 years old. He soloed at 16 and earned his Private Pilot License at 17. Once he discovered tailwheel and aerobatic flying it changed his life forever. He, with the help of his best friend Geoff, started Tailwheel Adventures to share his passion for flying with anyone willing to learn.

Tailwheel Adventures is currently looking for another CFI to help with flight and ground instruction duties: apply today!

 

The Fleet 

Tailwheel Adventures currently has two beautiful 7-KCAB Citabrias and a 1946 Piper Cub. The 7-KCAB Citabria has a Lycoming AEIO-320 engine, which produces 160hp. The power-to-weight ratio on this airplane is excellent! The Cub is, of course, a legendary aircraft of which should be flown by everyone at some point in their flying career.

 

We are currently in the market for another 7KCAB Citabria and Super Decathlon.

Kevin B. Garcia
Chief Pilot & CEO

Yousef Abuzayyad
Instructor Pilot

Yousef learned how to fly with Kevin in a Citabria and has now joined the Tailwheel Adventures team to pass on his knowledge to others.

Verle Cox
Instructor Pilot

Although Verle Cox isn't related to former Jimi Hendrix bass player Billy Cox, he's still an asset to Tailwheel Adventures as he brings a level of flying that isn't easily found in instructors.
