    The airplane you reference in question 1 was a cub with a ton of $$ put into a rebuild. My understanding was the owner had north of $150 K in it. And it was around 1000 empty, or a little less, but...

    I can’t take credit for the idea of “Practice Airstrips”. The folks in Fairbanks originated the current version at least. It’s been applied in a couple places in south central AK as well.
