Interested in training for a tailwheel endorsement, sport or Private pilot license, gaining mountain-flying proficiency, or maybe just wanting to get some Kitfox type-specific training prior to flying your own new Kitfox?


Stick & Rudder Aviation, in Boise Idaho, is proud to offer flight training in TWO factory-built Kitfox  S-LSA “Super Sport's" - a THIRD "STi" ("STOL inspired") factory-built, Backcountry-specific, 915 powered Kitfox coming this Spring.


Our current flight school Kitfox's - are equally equipped for the Backcountry - with either a 115 hp Turbo-charged Rotax 914, or 100 hp fuel-injected Rotax 912is (with AirMster constant speed prop), Alaska Bushwheels, and an Advance Flight System Electronic flight deck (with terrain & obstacle moving map, synthetic vision, and seamless electronic sectionals).

These Kitfox's offer a unique combination of a well-proven design that is perfectly suited to backcountry flying, and the Light Sport classification – that allows Sport Pilot certification (including a tailwheel endorsement) in as few as 35 hours.


All ready a pilot? - the Kitfox is a great choice for that tailwheel endorsement, or for exploring the backcountry airstrips with our highly qualified instructor(s).  Thinking of buying a Kitfox, or just completed building one? – test fly ours here first – I'm confident you'll love it.


Looking for advanced training following any of the above training?  Experience our unique offering - "Backcountry Training Tours".  Circuitous tank-of-gas training loops through the scenic canyons and passes of the Idaho, Montana, and Oregon backcountry - mastering a wide variety of short, sloped, one-way airstrips each day - then an overnight at a different Wilderness Dude Ranch (private airstrip) each night -  delicious family-style comfort food fills the belly - for arm-chair flying to continue around the campfire under the stars.


The following training page links will hopefully answer most of your questions about our flight training programs and teaching philosophy.  When you're all done with your review – please don't hesitate to send us an Email with any additional questions or the dates you would like to do your training. 




Thank you for your interest.


We look forward to working with you and help you to full-fill your dreams of flight.
