Local author Frank Baker will be giving a presentation at Brodhead Airport on Saturday, June 14 at 10:00 on his book, “Piper Cub Tales” and his adventures flying a J-3 Cub all around the country.
See Frank’s website HERE.
Join the book’s author as he flies adventure filled cross-country flights in a 1946 Piper Cub. Flying low and slow across seemingly endless prairies, through narrow mountain valleys, and over high mountain passes in the Rocky, Cascade and Appalachian Mountains, totaling some 71,695 miles, he and his passengers experience the extremes of Mother Nature’s personality. As a purist, Frank navigates solely by aeronautical chart, plotter, stopwatch, airspeed and compass. His “seat of the pants” flying in a vintage tail-dragger gives the reader a feeling for what aviation was like in an almost bygone era.
Spread the word and join us on Saturday the 14th for an interesting presentation!
