At the airshow I’ve been posting about, there were several Piper Cubs, a few owned by friends of mine. There was this example, which embodies all that basic flying can be.
When you’r flying a plane like this, you’re really flying. Truth be told, more than this, you don’t really need. It’s stick and rudder, throttle and your own two eyes. That’s what makes flying a real joy. Or so I think.
