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.
You've never been lost until you've been lost at Mach 2.
