  • You have a really nice airplane! Upgrading my 180 now with the BW’s.

  • Great setup, I makes me happy when I see an airplane that is really cared for, looks good.

  • Send me a PM if you want to discuss Skywagon flight characteristics with Sportsman, WingX and VG’s.

  • Send me your number and I will give you a call. Are you on the BCP site?You can send me a PM there as well. Will try your email.

  • The early 180’s are the best for sure!

  • Hello good afternoon.

    I am Brazilian and I have a great interest in aviation and in particular the sport. I’ve been researching this style of flight that to be honest I had no idea there was such a thing, even watching a video on the internet about a stol championship.
    I intend to do the pilot course and maybe travel to do a training with you.
    I sent some emails to the Backcountry super cubs to get more information about their planes, but until then I had no feedback. I wonder if the company remains active and if you can help me with some information on the models that the company manufactures.

    I thank you and look back.
