The Super Cub is a dream compared to the PT-22.

I don't know if I agree with the flying character of the PT-22. It is a primary trainer, an airplane you first start learning to fly. This characterization seems strange for training new pilots and may be over-stated. All airplanes and helicopters will react when power is lost due to torque changes. As long as he kept his airspeed above stall speed, he could fly the plane to the ground safely.

What is a swirl? A "swirl" is not an aviation term!



A swirl is a "Me" term. I'm not an aviator. LOL Sorry. When the plane does a spin as it's crashing. Whatever you aviators call that.

I'm a civvie.
Spins don't equate to crashing. I have done spins throughout my flight training both in the military and civilian world. They are very uncomfortable to do especially inverted ones. Most pilots get some introduction to them at some point in their flight training. Some planes can do them with no problem and some not so well.

I think that HF did as well as anyone else. He was lucky to have had a golf course to land on with the houses all around his flight path. If he landed elsewhere I'm sure there would have been a loss of life.

Spins in a sailplane are FUN.

I love Cubs! They are fun...two of my three kids have soloed in a cub 30 years ago. They are like hens teeth today. No one wants to deal with fabric and wood airplanes anymore.

I'd sell a family member for an old wood and fabric bird.

I've never flown a sailplane. They do look cool though. I miss flying a great deal!

If you lived in the west it's not such a big problem but here in Ohio you have to keep'em hangared. That can get pretty expensive. Fabric replacement is getting to be a lost art with mechanics as well.

That makes me sad honestly. I love fabric aircraft.

I miss flying to. And sailplanes are a blast. They're quite the challenge.

I can only imagine. The only plane that I wanted to fly is a Rutan VariViggen. I wouldn't mind owning one. Looks like a fighter and flies like a cub.

I wouldn't mind a ViperJet. They supply space, tools, and assistance, and you build it (it's an Experimental). Nice little jet, supposed to be a blast to fly. You can even put external fuel tanks on it.

When you fly do you fly to music?
Like the ride of the valkyries?.

No, I prefer wind noise when I'm in a sailplane. The noise is relaxing.
