If the question was, "Should I rent an RV and hire a cfi to get my tailwheel endorsement, and transition training, at the same time?" the answer is that this may be difficult.

As you know E-AB aircraft cannot be used for compensation or hire, e.g. Not rented out. The FAA will issue a waiver (LODA) to that rule for transition training; but most FSDOs are limiting the LODA to transition training only, absolutely nothing else. No TW endorsements, no high performance endorsements, no flight reviews. To go this route you will need a very good friend to let you fly his RV for free; or, wait until after you have your own RV, then hire a cfi to give you whatever training you desire.

Citabria for TW endorsement looks like the best choice.

Bob you are correct, I'm hoping that someday this will not be the case. I have been working with the FAA in Washington to have this changed. There is no time frame, but I'm glad that at least they are listening. If and when we make this change to the LODA, it will have to be that the person getting the High performance endorsement will need to own an RV10, or, in the future an RV14/A for that matter. Also the person trying to get a TW endorsement will have to own a TW RV. This is the only way the FAA will even consider it. Again, that is my proposal to them and there are no promises. I'm just glad that we are talking and they are listening. It is a beginning.
