Thank you
Be extremely cautious about tailstrikes. Usually in aircraft vulnerable to tailstrikes, it is better to rotate too slowly than too quickly if your rotation rate is not correct. Being slow on final can lead to a higher pitch attitude which reduces the space between the tail and the ground. If you find a higher than expected sink rate in the flare, save it with power, not more pitch. If you bounce but are not going around due to the bounce, I would consider holding pitch attitude instead of pushing or pulling on the control column.

This is just generic stuff, not type specific.
