Even though some of them are more than 60 years old, the Super Cub remains one of the most popular airplanes in the bush today precisely because it gets the job done. It can carry a lot of gear, and it takes the insults of unimproved strips without much complaint. Most Cubs have gotten a number of mods, from big tires and the rocky and rolling fun-flying they allow, to bigger engines and, well, you name it. Dan's Aircraft, the Super Cub king located in Anchorage, Alaska, lists more than a dozen available mods but cuts that list short, saying merely that there are "too many to list." What is perhaps the most popular upgrade in Alaska? Floats, with skis close behind. The Super Cub was made to fly off the water, in liquid or frozen form.
