I am an ASEL, resident in the US, with a US PPL issued on the basis of my current Australian PPL/Medical as well as both current US and Australia Flight Reviews. I do not have a tailwheel endorsement attached to my Australian Licence. In order to fly tailwheel in the US, would I have to return to Australia to acquire the training and endorsement on my Australian Licence or can I do it here in the US and legally fly a tailwheel aircraft?

Advice appreciated.

We absolutely love  reading stories from pilots who recently completed their flight review after a long hiatus from flying. Just last week we heard from a pilot who attended a Rusty Pilots seminar in December 2016 - he was proud to report that he received his Flight Review endorsement on April 22, 2017 - after more than 10 years away from the cockpit! Are there any other pilots out there who have recently completed their flight review after a long break?
