I'm Dave Griffith.I bought my first airplane,a 1941 J-3 about a year and a half ago.I flew a Cub on skis about30 yrs ago.I actually had the pleasure of flight instructing for a FBO that had a 7AC and later a J-3,which was put on skis in the winter.Believe it or not,I was the only CFI that was interested in teaching in the Cub.I had the pleasure of actually soloing a few beginning students in the Cub.This in a day when headsets and intercomms were not used!I'm looking forward to doing the first ski flying in my Cub in many years.The winters in NW IL have not been good for ski flying but I'm hoping this year will be different.

Dave did you ever get to solo someone on skis as their first solo ? I'm working on someone that I hope makes it before the snow all disappears.

My wife's first solo was on skis.  She took her training from John Hatz (the designer of the Hatz Biplane) in his J3 Cub.  John taught her how to fly, and taught me how to fly skis.  We miss him!

I'm building a Hatz biplane. Live at Poplar Grove, Illinois, just outside rockford. Had the pleasure of meeting most of the Hatz boys. Fly a cub on skis when we have snow.

Dave, where are you at?

Bill
