My 1st big cross country flight in the Super Cub; happy to share the experience.

Understanding airspace and how to creatively work with in the system is key to enjoying aviation.
Some pilots avoid talking to ATC at all costs. But controllers are there to help, and today I was really impressed with how helpful they were even though they could not see me, and I was staying just on the edge outside their airspace.

Here’s a link to the reddit thread that helped inspire me to make this video after discussing the flight:
And below is a link to a tragic example of a wake encounter while cruising, doing something similar to what I was doing BUT the heavies were much closer above.
See the Flight Chops 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 an 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 in case I forget to update the links here in this description:
