Ken Wittekind

+1 on Ken. I got my tailwheel endoresement with him over a weekend. I had a lot of fun and learned a ton about flying outside the plane.

6/6A

I think we could figure out which you should get based on the car you drive. I drive a 911/I fly a tailwheel. They both are trying to kill me all the time, so they keep me on my toes.
