Ah, but Cubs should be based at little grass strips with a coffee maker, a "liar's table" and a bench to sit on and discuss takeoffs and landings!


Hi Ralph H.
Concur! And will likely be based at Airport Manatee (48X) one 3,100’ grass runway. Just the ticket.

Don't forget the scarred, one-eyed airport cat, usually named "Prop".


Hi Ray,
And the airport dog “Aileron”<g>

Ha, back in the 1970/80s worked / flew out of an office at KBOW. We had this dirty, dingy, white indoor/outdoor mascot cat name of “Parallax” (we were in the business of making maps using stereo imagery) She liked to lurk in the bushes by the sidewalk at the FBO next door to us. She’d do a hit –n- run on any stranger walking by. Grab them on the back of the leg calf and run like the dickens.

Like most any cat she’d jump in any vehicle door left ajar. As I recall: one day she got an airplane ride most of the way to Daytona. They turned around and brought her back. Meow.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Tom, I think I know one out at Gillespie Field for sale. Its been completely restored. Ill look into it today and get back to you. Saw it advertised on the bulletin board down at EAA this weekend, Brown Field.


Hi Patty,
Thanks!

Gillespie Field (KSEE)? Hoping to find something closer to home . . . but . . . for the right deal . . .
Looking for the most Cub I can get for something like 35 ~ 40K

Have you flown a J-3 before? If not you will love it. And the more you fly it . . . well they really grow on ya!

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Hi Tom.I have been up in a J-3, just once. A former BF has a Super Cruiser, which I spent many hours in. Would love to have a Piper of my own one day. I finally heard back from Mike LaFrance. Sorry that took so long. The cub he is selling has 36 hours and is asking 45K for it. Would you like his number?

Hi Patty, thanks.

Sure, send phone # via PM or here on the forum.
Or give Mike my email and ask him if he’d like to send info on his Cub.
( avi8tor.tom [the at symbol here] gmail.com )

Most recent thinking on J-3 Cub must have -vs- nice to have considerations

Must have:
* Paper work in order.
* Fabric cover that has potential to last awhile.
* Yellow W/ black trim.
* C-85 or greater Continental engine w/ good potential remaining life
* Impulse mags.
* Reasonable assurance airframe tubing in good condition
* Sealed struts.
* Grove Brakes.
* 1,220lb gross wt.

Nice to have:
* Metal prop
* Alum spars
* Extra in-wing fuel tank
* Purchase not too far from home
* -12 accessory case w/ starter.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

3100'???????

For a Cub???

You can probably do at least 3 touch and goes on one pass. :)

I got checked on in an Aero Club Citabria at Barksdale AFB. 12000' runway, so IIRC, we got 9 touch and goes on one pass. Climbs were to 50'.

Hi Terry,
If’n a Citabria could do nine I recon an 85hp Cub could get in twelve. Hold my beer . . .

It would be an interesting test.

Larger wing with less HP, versus Smaller wing with more HP.

Of course a Super Cub would be even better. Large wing, more HP, and FLAPS. :)
