This was the night I fell in love with the Super Cub.

Proud to be associated with ForeFlight:

I’d had a scare recently and lost confidence to get slow enough to effectively land on a short field. For this flight, I’m working on my “chops” 3 point short field landing the Super cub on a grass strip over a very calm evening…

For the next flight I did the opposite, and I faced the most challenging gusty cross wind I’d ever flown in – watch for that one soon…

See my main channel for all sorts of flying content from aerobatics to IFR training, and much more Tail Wheel Flying!

NOTE: this flight was EDITED down from over an hour to under 15 minutes; Thus, there are missing details and possible lost context.
Also, I am NOT and instructor, so PLEASE do not look at this as instruction but rather the start to a conversation that you can have with your instructor.

And, if you haven’t seen it already – check out the “fun” video I edited from my first lesson:…

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive
