NO TAIL RELEASE UNTIL YOU ARE SAFELY IN THE AIRCRAFT
Most experienced pilots who fly aircraft without an electrical system agree that securing the tail of the aircraft to a fixed tie-down or immovable object is the safest way to start the engine. The real challenge comes after the engine starts. How does the pilot release the tie-down?
The TailTether Hand-prop Safety System allows the pilot to not only release the tie-down AFTER safely entering the cockpit but also recover the tether strap if desired.
“The TailTether worked as advertised. I use it in conjunction with a set of chocks that I can also reel in from the cockpit, which gives me double safety control over my classic Aeronca 7AC Champ while solo hand-propping. I was impressed how solidly the TailTether holds the aircraft in place, yet releases the tie-down rope with just a gentle tug. I’d absolutely recommend the TailTether to anyone who flies a classic Cub, Chief, Champ, or any other design that requires them to be temporarily outside of the aircraft while the engine is running.” – Rob – Shreveport, LA
