    This is my kind of plane. Slow, stick, and rudder. No frills. I love the j3.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Can't say I've ever been in a J-3, but I have been up-side-down in a PA-11 Super Cub.......nice shot, brings back a few memories......

    Yes I learned to fly a J3 in 1943-44. Franklin 65.hp.
    No tail wheel- just a skid. No wheel covers. No brakes.
    Used ski's in the winter when we had lots of snow.

    Most fun
    Spins fom 6000 feet, and Pylon Eights around two silos at 300 feet.

    Instructor $5 per hour
    J3 $3 per hour.

  6. That's the only way to go! Some of the students at the local big flight school are flying around with "glass cockpit" single engine Cessnas. I'm sure they still teach slips there, but...I can't remember seeing any of them actual do any :biggrin:
