http://skybnd.com/ offers training in their Super Decathlon. I took some lessons there and was very satisified with the instruction.

Another option is Greg Koontz in Ashville, Alabama.

I just did Spin Training and Basic Aerobatics, going back for Advanced Aerobatics in November.

He is a fantastic instructor and the school is also a Bed and Breakfast, bring your significant other, includes meals, fantastic beds, really a great time, highly recommended!

Edit: His private airport and B&B are out in the country, it's eerily quiet when no planes are running, relaxing.

How do you feel the Decathlon prepared you for the RV? Pretty similar characteristics?

They're both good guys, and I've taken instruction from both. However, if I had to pick, I'd go with Greg. Nice place, better equipment, any sort of instruction you want (tailwheel, acro, upset, spin), all from a very private grass strip.
