I got pretty good in a tail-dragger, but, I never got the hang of rotate V1 @ 5kts. !! LOL :lol:
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

You see WHY the Super Cub is the Plane of choice for AK's guides etc.
I should have recognized that air port but nope! Been gone too long.

I'm negotiating the purchase of my first airplane right now--a TEAM Airbike, light sport, single place. I hope it works out.

I guess I need to get some tail wheel instruction. :wink:
