I'm asking for myself, but I'm generally working to acquire a couple of light STOL/taildragger type aircraft to try and make available for other pilots in the area as well, and I'd like to make contact with any local freelance instructors who might be interested in this kind of stuff, and who would be willing to work with the various pilots that will come and go in relation to these airplanes. Sort of like the BC/Alberta equivalent to outfits like Stick & Rudder Aviation in or TacAero in Oregon.
Any recommends are muchly appreciated!
Your idea is excellent and is something that is needed to make flying more available to recreational pilots.I'd like to find an instructor or school that will do the conventional gear endorsements, but who can also provide a good deal of know-how on mountain and backcountry flying.
As to conventional gear endorsements there is no such thing in Canada.
Just find an experienced tail wheel pilot that is a good teacher and that will be just fine.
Good luck and make sure you choose the right airplanes.
A Cub or a Citrabia would be perfect.

I would recomend ShinySideUp he was doing tail wheel/mountain stuff out of Okatoks, but I don't know how to find him.
