Tail wheel flying this summer was a blast.
But we need to say good-bye to the Super Cub for the winter.
Not enough people are interested in cold weather flying her, even though Super Cubs do really well in the winter if you’re up for it!
Anyway – she goes offline Dec 1st each year, and I took the opportunity to learn about the pickling / deactivation process.
BONUS footage with Dennis and his STEARMAN!
