Flying is the game only for the braves in Alaska. The state of Alaska which covers 1,720,000 square kilometers is on the northwestern corner of North America. Though its territorial area is about one fifth as large as that of China, the state’s population is only about 720,000, and most of the residents live in Anchorage. The rest of the population scatters across the other areas which cover about 1 million square kilometers. For those areas, the main transportation method is flying. However, in such areas which even barely have roads, airports are extremely rare. Thus, an aircraft that can take off or land on the rivers, snow, even mountains and almost anywhere would be a wonderful solution, and that aircraft is the Cub. Alaska is the state that has the most private aircrafts in the USA and 80% of its lands are wildlife refuges or protected area, and the roads are rare and tough there. Such environment made Alaskans real “flying nation” and “snow nation”— 80% of the adults own private pilot license and 50% of the families own private aircrafts. The environment serves as a strict criteria for the aircrafts flying in Alaska. Most of the aircrafts in Alaska are tailwheel aircrafts and the Top Cub is the best of them. There is no doubt that it can bring you to almost anywhere you want.
In fact, the hero that can be found in most jungle adventure videos is Cub. The Top Cub, acting like a tough bear, flies all over the ice fields, take off and land on roaring river. The Top Cub is android, easy to maneuver and gives the pilot and passenger great sights. It can even open the wind shields during the flight. The areas that ordinary planes dare not touch is the heaven Top Cub can show its great capability.
When mention the Top Cub, it’s better to review his history first.
