In November TCMG sold the Schiebe back to Motorgliding USA located in Memphis because TCMG is refocusing on training airplane pilots using classic airplanes like the Luscombe 8E and Mooney Cadet. Both of these airplanes provide excellent platforms to teach pilots the skills they will need to become safe competent airmen.


The training methods used by TCMG Flight Training are based on more than 40 years of providing flight instruction at many area flight training schools, which includes Piper Aircraft Corporation and Flight Safety Academy.


TCMG Flight Training is located at the New Hibiscus Airpark which is adjacent to the Outlet Mall in Vero Beach, Florida. We specialize in developing sound piloting skills with emphasis on attitude flying using the natural horizon.

Training Goals

Courses provided by TCMG are structured to allow the student to progress as rapidly as their skill level permits while attempting to keep their cost to the minimum required for completion.

The aircraft we use develop strong stick & rudder skills in the pilot. They are strong basic aircraft responding well to pilot who develop the feel for what's required to fly them well.


Many valuable techniques used by glider pilots are also taught such as use of glide angles in managing altitude for power off approaches, effects of wind on glide path, as well as  difference between best glide and minimum sink.

Primary Airplane Training

TCMG provides training for the Private Pilot Airplane rating using a Luscombe 8E and a Mooney A2A. The student would start their instruction in the Luscombe, which provides an excellent platform for acquiring strong stick and rudder skills.


After soloing the Luscombe, the student is transitioned to the Mooney Cadet for the cross country, instrument, and night flying phases of the training.


Benefits of this approach are the student graduates with strong stick and rudder skills as well as the ability to fly both tailwheeled and tricycle geared airplanes.

Tail wheel Endorsement

We also offer tail wheel  instruction in a Luscombe 8E, an airplane with flying qualities well suited to this type of training.  The training duration varies based on previous experiences but would typically take ten hours for a pilot with no previous experience with tail wheel aircraft. The pilot receives a tail wheel endorsement after completion of this course.


Spin Training

Loss of Control (LOC) accidents remain a leading contributor of accident fatalities. TCMG offers stall awareness and spin training in the Luscombe 8E with a focus on developing the skills needed to safely deal with unexpected upsets, upsets usually caused by encountering some form on stall.  The pilot receives a spin endorsement upon completion this course.


Glider Techniques Applied to Airplanes

Glider pilots are trained to use angles in managing their approaches and landings, angles which can be successfully used by airplane pilots. This course teaches a pilot how to use dip angle and glide cone to safely fly a power off approach to a predicable landing.Other techniques include management of best glide speed based on wind along with determining minimum sink speed along with it's use.
