Freedom of Flight

Getting our own little two-seat airplane changed our lives.  Not only could we travel in the winter by snow machine, we now had a way to get around in the summer.  My husband, Shon, was back in the pilot’s seat and was enjoying every minute.  Making short takeoffs and landings from Cub Lake was challenging, but thrilling to both of us.  Our highly modified little PA-12, N3227M, was definitely life-changing.
