Ride a long for an early solo flight in the Super Cub.
I am happy to share these solo learning moments as I work on my “chops” landing the Super cub.
Wind conditions were rather calm, but it was still a good work out for me.
Stay tuned for some more exciting ones as I step it up and fly in challenging wind conditions.
NOTE: this flight was EDITED down from over an hour to under 15 minutes; Thus, there are missing details and possible lost context
– And 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’s a tease to the Stearman / formation flying!
– I am excited to share this awesomeness!
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:

DISCLAIMER: 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.Feed back is invited; however, please keep it positive
