After 40 or so hours of glider(uh...I mean sailplane) training, including acrobatics, the next phase would be J-3 school.

That is, if I were King.

W777,

I would recommend a few hours in any taildragger anyway - probably a Supercub or Citabria, so that you sit in the front. You will learn a lot.

Also try to take at least one flight in a glider and with the instructor's approval, try a turn without using the rudder - you will learn all about adverse yaw. 😉

When I learned to fly we had a real problem finding a nose wheel trainer, in fact the school I went to only had one in a fleet of ten airplanes.

Then after I got my PPL Cessna put a nose wheel on the Cessna 170 and called it the " Landomatic " and flying skill teaching has gone down hill ever since.
