    If it were me, an Alaska Cub would have a good basic VFR panel, maybe with a glass PFD. I'd...

    The OP still hasn’t listed his mission for this plane. That is REALLY critical with these planes. Most 11s frankly are legally a single place plane, due to useful load constraints. Yes, the plane...

    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...

    Prosecutors strategy: Charge them with a statute that suggests life in prison, so you can negotiate down to a $50 fine. And big publicity for the (politically elected) prosecutor.
