Thinking about a newer plane for teaching Float-Plane Flying
I have loved my little PA-11 90 horse for the last 9 years or so.... She is the perfect float-Plane trainer.
Because she is so light and nimble, I am able to get into lakes that are usually reserved for big engine Super Cubs and Husky's.
But after years in a semi-salty lake and an Airport only yards from the ocean, she is starting to show the need for some heavy duty loving in a nice hangar. The problem is that here in Homer finding longer term affordable hangar space is impossible.
So I am faced with a heart wrenching decision, either:
A. Sell the Dragon-Lady and buy another affordable Cub ( maybe with a starter and lights) for seaplane instruction,,,,,,,
B. Find an out of town hangar and A&P for a long term rebuild which would put me out of business for a year.
C. Close up shop and find a new hobby job.
Selling the Dragon-Lady would be like shooting Old Yeller...
