Skillsets: 'lil cub
Home-built STOL, needs nothing more than a Sport Pilot License.
This little wonder would be able to - easily - take off from the pad site for III Arms.
That is a serious achievement. Runway space has always been one of the most limiting factors of your choice of aircraft.
I have no intention of ever trying to build my own flying machine - but learning to fly has made the imperative skills list. The FAA's creation of the Sport Pilot License has put this in reach of nearly everyone. If you need to put serious distance between yourself and X, going airborne is hard to beat.
Thanks to Mike C. for the link - there is a cool video there. Take a little while and explore the world of "Experimental" aircraft and anything you may fly with a Sport License. Those same skills will permit you to fly most light aircraft in a pinch.
Here's the link.
