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

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.
Here are the direct links to some other Tail Wheel Flying videos that I’ve done, but please also check my channel incase I forget to update the links here in this description:
