Hello all,

First I wanted to open this up for others looking to connect in the Anchorage area.

Second I am looking to start my PPL in 2020 and thus I'm hunting planes. On paper I love everything about the Maule except the cost of insurance. That said I have never had the opportunity to fly in one or pick some owners brains about why they chose their Maule.

I'd love the chance to chat and at least check out your birds.

Cheers, Joseph

Quite a few of us around in Anchorage and the Valley. Should be able to hook up with someone. We'd all be happy to tell you all about how Maule is the best... LOL!

crbnunit - I see a few of them around at the airports for sure. I just haven't had the chance to meet anyone that flies them.

i say owning a male is like "kind of" owning both a super cub and a cessna 180. it will come fairly close to doing the mission of either of those planes. don't get me wrong, nothing preforms like a cub but keep the maule light and put an experienced pilot in it and it will come close.
the big back door also is a big advantage , the plane is fairly easy to work on and the parts are not as expensive as other brands.
