IMO, this plane would be best for those of us wanting slow speed flying once in a while, like me. BTW, did you know that this plane can’t reach the speed limit on many highways in Dubai, UAE?

Would be fun to fly! Out of votes tough.

Yes please! REmembee ro vote for your own request ;)

I did vote for my request.

EDIT: I don’t know where my votes went. They don’t add up.

EDIT 2: Removed a vote from another topic so I could vote in this.

I’d revise your “current operators” as that aircraft had been retired from RAF service for absolutely ages, I also highly doubt that most of those air forces still operate that aircraft.

Add the super cub with tundra tires. It would be awesome to do some bush flying in Alaska.
