Landing gear used for aircraft is designed to support a vehicle’s overall weight and provides stability during landing, take-off, and on-ground operations. However, the type of landing gear installed varies according to an aircraft’s design, weight, and intended purpose. In particular, tailwheel-type landing gear is the conventional choice for smaller aircraft, and they incorporate two wheels affixed toward the plane’s center of gravity, alongside a small skid or wheel toward the end of the aircraft to support its tail. Considered a variation of tricycle gear, such landing gear was originally created in 1929 by Waldo Waterman. While it is common to see small, modern propeller aircraft utilizing a tailwheel type undercarriage, they are not suited for larger, heavier-than-air aircraft.
