Southeast Alaskan float planes were (mid-70's) the main conveyance of transportation in the straits and sounds of the islands. The Cessna 180 Skywagon on amphibious floats was the work horse. It could carry four to six people, depending on how much gear they had. McC
Piper L-18 Super Cub. I have a log book that shows that I took 11 hours of flight instruction in one of these wonderful planes! Summer of 1956, KC Flying Service at the old MKC airport. I recall it cost $11.00 an hour for dual instruction and I quit because my budget was ruined by my flight lessons. Very funny.
