First Landings Aviation, a sport pilot flight school at Orlando Apopka Airport (X04) in Florida, has added a Piper Cub to its fleet. The addition of the Cub allows First Landings Aviation to offer both conventional gear (taildragger) training, as well as tricycle-gear training in its Remos and PiperSport aircraft, according to company officials.
The Cub will add diversity to the First Landings fleet, as its steam gauge panel layout is now a training option for those who prefer not to train in glass cockpit aircraft, officials add.
“We chose the Piper Cub because the timeless airplane is great trainer, can be flown by Sport Pilots, and allows us to offer taildragger training for pilots wishing to hone their flying skills and try something different” says Chris Esposito, Chief Pilot and co-owner of First Landings Aviation. “The simplicity of the cockpit really forces pilots to fly the airplane by feel, obtaining true stick and rudder skills in the process.”
