We operate a Piper J3 Cub on Aqua 1500 straight floats. Our Cub, though originally built in the 1940's, has undergone a complete restoration by our veteran and highly skilled mechanics. Performance is surprising, thanks to an upgraded powerplant producing nearly 100hp. With the option to fly with the doors completely open, simple and minimalistic systems and instrumentation, and the nostalgia of flying an iconic piece of American aviation history, this plane never ceases to put a smile on your face!
The American Legend AL-3 is a modernized version of the classic Piper J-3 Cub. The pure simplicity of Cub flying is only enhanced by a roomier cockpit and modern safety features including a starter, radios, and ADSB in and out. Our Legend AL-3 utilizes a Continental O-200 and Aqua 1500 straight floats to offer improved performance over it's vintage inspiration. The Legend Cub is guaranteed to give you that nostalgic Cub experience in a more comfortable, reliable example of fine American craftsmanship.
One of the most highly revered 2-place bush planes in history, makes a fantastic seaplane trainer. The Super Cub shares the tandem, stick configuration with the J3, but adds flaps, higher payload, more fuel capacity, a Lycoming 160hp powerplant, EDO 2000 floats and moves the pilot seat to the front!
The venerable Skyhawk, it's easy to fly, has great visibility, forgiving flight characteristics, and is an easy transition for any pilot wanting to fly floats. Fitted with EDO 2130 floats, an upgraded 180hp, and fixed pitch prop, this side by side aircraft offers a familiar sight picture to help you focus on the new stuff! This airplane is ready to prove how fun a 172 can be!
