Matthew Keller, an Alaskan native and the owner and operator of Blue Ice Aviation, has recently posted this amazing picture of his aircraft in a boulder patch up in Alaska. However, he did note that the actual landing strip was more user friendly than it appears in the picture he took.
Nevertheless, he did note that while his US$10,000 hydrosorbs landing gear system can absorb the impact of a hard landing, he tries to avoid such landings due to the wear and tear that they cause. Moreover and while his Super Cub is rugged, he wrote that the aircraft still has its limitations plus he is often flying around fully loaded with both equipment and passengers.
