    Supercub on Wipaire 2100A

    My Supercub on amphibs is about to become a reality. The folks at Wipaire have been great to work with and I am looking forward to flying soon.

    Man, that looks great. I can't wait to see it. Our Cubs will look a lot alike and have similar features, one certified, one experimental.

    Congratulations!!!

    Bill
    Very Blessed.

    You chose an outstanding company for your floats. I have about 250 TT on 2100As. Loved every minute.

    Note: Get the skis too, the hydraulics are "plug and play".

    If you ever consider skis, let me know. I have a set I bought with my Cub, they had 8 hrs of use, basically brand new. I installed them 1 winter and flew 3 hrs..... C2200 WhipAir Airglide Hydraulic skis, tail ski included.

    Ray, happy to see your airplane here! Always fun to see a Super Cub here, especially one with some Dakota Cub bits in it

    How much are 2100a’s running these days?

    I have a pa-12 without float fittings and no left door. Is that a problem?

    The float fittings come with the floats. There are some Piper mods required of the fuselage which Wipline may be able to supply. You do not need the left door.

    But it sure makes things like docking a lot simpler.
