Test flying Super Cub post repair! Should we put VGs on it? + Repair Process

It’s been a long road to get this airplane flying again!

Thanks to http://www.cubcrafters.com for a pile of parts that are now on this plane 🙂

My tail wheel journey has led to some awesome stuff including recently being signed off to solo the T6! To celebrate that, there is a new shirt design with 100% of the funds going to the Canadian Historical Aircraft association. Check it out!

Please consider sharing their link and or donating to help them keep the airplanes flying! http://www.ch2a.ca

Here is the raw / uncut 1st solo flight for Patreon supporters! 

And here is Ron doing aerobatics on his 85th birthday in the Harvard! (Patreon Supporter exclusive)

I’m a Private Pilot, doing my best to stay current and learn. I fly for fun and might just be the least cocky pilot on the internet! My self analysis videos can seem self deprecating at times, but I am trying to learn from the small mistakes to avoid making a big one; I’m happy to share and find it rewarding to help other pilots or aspiring aviators in any way that I can. How does the saying go? “Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards”. And in aviation, not all tests are survivable.

My virtual “ride-along” flying videos are aimed and sharing my experiences and giving back to the aviation community which has been so helpful to me. I shoot multi-camera angles, get detailed real time instrument panel shots, and have radio intercom audio. I respect people’s time, so I put a fair bit of work into editing to keep the videos concise and engaging; I add animations and further graphics and voice overs where needed to add context and explanations.

My hope is to continue to grow and evolve the “Flight Chops” project with input and support from the aviation community!

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.
