Nice A/C but you are probably looking at $100.000 by the time you get done with all STOL options, not to mention the 600to 700 hrs build…
Could you do this or close with a PA 20 or PA 11for half of the price?
Looking at the accident reports over the years seems that a lot of pilots with highly capable bush aircraft tend to damage them more often…and take more chances.
A Swiss pilot operating in Alaska comes to mind…some of you will know the man in question,
A pilot at Winchester Airpark, Jim V used to land across the East West runway with his modified Supercub when the wind was from the North…not recommended in my book.
