Default tailwheel,basic aerobatic training in Indiana

Does anybody know if there are places in Indiana where one can obtain
basic aerobatic and tailwheel training? Any info greatly appreciated.

Dale Byrom, near Indianapolis, does tailwheel training in a Champ. I
learned to fly with him, and still try to visit him annually or so (I
live in the Oklahoma City area); wonderful instructor. You can e-mail
him at ; tell him you got his name from me (I don't
get any kickbacks or anything, just tell him hi for me). He's even
written a book on flying taildraggers (which I have). Last time I
asked, he had four or five thousand hours, almost all of it instruction,
and had no aspirations of doing anything but instruction. I don't know
if he does aerobatic instruction; I know he's done some basic stuff, but
I don't know how long it's been, and I don't know if he has an aerobatic
airplane right now, but he owns a Champ and a Cessna 140 (personal
airplanes), and loves teaching tailwheel.

I'm thinking about heading out there this summer for a few days to do
some CFI refresher training with him; since I got my CFI, I've learned
more from him than from any other instructor I've had (note that I
haven't flown with him in probably four years, and not a lesson in six,
and got my CFI two years ago). Absolutely fabulous instructor. Feel
free to send me e-mail if you have any questions or such.
