Piper PA-12 Takeoffs And Landings At Richard's Field




What do you think about this video?

Rodney B Jennings: I had a relative in Alaska that started out with a PA12 then finally a PA18 because all the real bush pilots have Super Cubs, but he later said the STOL performance of the 12 wasn't much different than the 18 and the 12 was much faster with the same engine and prop, I thought the 12 was an 18 with a wider fuselage, I guess not.

Lucas Hugie: Great landings with a great looking cruiser.

kitfox flyer: leet her rip

Taylorman55: Thanks for sharing! Nice video... I have been flying a few different tail draggers lately.... J3, Champ, PA 12, PA 18, Pacer PA-20, and a Taylorcraft ...I see a few guys saying its hard to fly a PA-12, which it isnt easy on certain days, but the hardest plane Ive flown in is the Taylorcraft BC12D.. 90 hp and it also outperforms the champ and J3 cub with the same hp HANDS DOWN..... some great flying on this video with the wind! Good experienced pilot! thanks again for sharing

Heli Flight: Awesome flying Capt. Roy Berube. I enjoyed the video. Thanks for the post!

Gutpile Charlie: Back when I was a kid, in the late 50's I used to fly a Piper PA12. I learned in a J3 and to step up to the Pa12 was like flying a P51. A few years back I saw that same aircraft advertised for sale on the internet. It was N7720H, built in 1946 in Ponca City, Oklahoma. The last time I flew it was 1958.

Nick Smith: I wonder where N3736M is?

Tek Turbiasz: Very nice job capturing this bird.

Michael Donavon: Nice video, thanks. IMHO that was a great job of manipulating the controls. If I may humbly comment on the technique - I thought it was great. Mastry is the only word that comes to mind for this piloting. Loved that great slip, initially, on the final landing. Transitioned to a fully control coordinated crab, then alighment with the rwy - and: Stick back, stick back, stick back! Wish I could do that!

PrettyRicky218: I've seen this video at least 10 times over time as I would dream of what it'd be like to fly such an awesome aircraft. Then last month I bought my first airplane, a 1947 Piper PA-12 with all of the Alaskan mods. you can see my trip from CA back to MN on my youtube. In Kansas I hit some really strong winds and landing that plane took everything I had, but I'm only 27. You make it look easy ;-)

ripmax333: this pilot must have been flying all his life! super handling and very nice piper pa-12!!!

slowflier: Hats off to Capt. Don for some nice flying and a great lookng PA-12. I fly a PA-12 as well with many of the same mods. Check out my video clips doing some beach landings in Alaska. Thanks for sharing.

waterheadsss: great job and great looking plane !!!!!

waterheadsss: yea its not easy

Q: I have a Cessna 177b.

Andrew Boundy: You made that look easy - and it's not! Nice.

TOKAMEEL: My dad had a Super Cruiser before he married mom and all I ever got to see was the old photos. But I loved his stories about flying above the corn stalks (1949 Wisconsin). I got my Private ticket in 1974 and he was my first passenger. Thanks for this video.

Gutpile Charlie: Just had to see this video again. I loved the way you handled the cross winds and the gusts. I used to fly N7720H that was a 1946 PA12 from Ponca City Oklahoma. I didn't realize at the time what a great plane it was. I always thought the PA18 was better, but now I look at that wide cabin and think that this may have been Mr. Piper's greatest Cub?
