Why Tundra Tailwheels?


The Tundra Tailwheel is designed to enhance ground handling and prevent over-steering during landings. It operates as a full castering system, lacking traditional steering components like rudder linkage. Instead, it trails the aircraft. The internal adjustable tensioning system eliminates shimmy. With no breakout force needed for turning, the aircraft maneuvers smoothly and is easily controllable. Steering during taxiing and landing is achieved through individual brake inputs, while takeoff only requires rudder input for directional control.

The Tundra Lockable variant includes a manual locking mechanism for straight ground tracking during takeoff and landing. Locking is optional; and can be controlled from the cockpit.
