A Cub in the Family

With all the recent excitement surrounding the XCub, I thought I would post these pics of my uncle’s plane. It’s a Carbon Cub SS. He’s been a GA pilot as long as I can remember, and has many hours in both single and twin-engine types. N613JL was purchased new, and flown over 2,000 miles cross-country, from Washington to Michigan. The skis are a recent addition, allowing for backcountry flying in the colder months. He’s promised me a ride and some stick time on an upcoming visit. Sounds good to me! (The photos are mine.)
