A PA-11 is what you want it to be, but certainly it can deliver far more than weekend flights. It doesn't seem much when compared with a PA-18 at first glance, but in the hands of an expert aviator, it can do everything that a Super Cub does, at a fraction of the cost (a 65 HP Cub Special consumes 15 litres of fuel per hour, while the Super Cub doubles that amount), and while a PA-11 is a very noble and easy to fly plane, in expert hands that make it behave like a true bird it becomes a terrific bush plane.
A PA-11 will make you happy, always: This picture of me was taken after an emergency landing. The fuzzy cloud happened due to hitting cow dung with the propeller.
It doesn't carry any sophisticated instruments, so it is an aircraft that requires a true aviation skills. You have to perform good, true pilotage, observed navigation and use your instincts in order to go from one place to another, and if something malfunctions you can land almost anywhere, make your own expedient repairs and fly off again while other planes would even have trouble crashing in the same tight spots, r they will remain grounded for quite a while afterwards.
And then we had to clean it all right there... The shit (why not say it, if it is true) really hit the fan that day.
