CubCrafter XCub

The modern version of the Piper Cub has a much stronger engine (180hp or 215hp) and updated avionics and is a real powerhouse and joy to fly.


On this flight we (Chergo and Chris joined in) crossed the Rocky Mountains twice, once in westerly direction over Logan Pass (as in my Flying Boat World Tour) and once in easterly direction via Glenns Lake. The winds in Babb were strong, very strong and a good cross wind landing was required. On the back flight many new peaks from white to red were found. Chief Mountain (white), Bear Mountain (red), Pyramid Peak and after the passage at Wahcheechee Mountain finally Kootenai Peak. We followed the valley down to Langton airport with its sloped runway. A perfect stop to end this short bush flying adventure.
