About Foster Aviation

At Foster Aviation we approach flying as much as an art as a science. To this end we emphasize stick and rudder skills and learning to feel the airplane through “seat of the pants” flying. While this skill set can be learned in almost any airplane, we believe the most efficient method is through tailwheel training and exploring the boundaries of the “normal flight envelope”. Foster Aviation specializes in tailwheel training and capitalizes on our unique location in Missoula, Montana by offering an introduction to backcountry flying.
