Jackson’s J-3 Piper Cub replica was hand built so he could include a larger engine and pontoon floats so it can land on water.

The plane won the Grand Champion Gold Lindy Award at last year’s E-A-A AirVenture, a week-long fly-in convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The Experimental Aircraft Association boasts 900 chapters and over 270,000 members.
