Alaska Bush Plane, The Piper PA-12
Alaska

The Piper PA-12 is a common bush plane in Alaska because of its relatively roomy cabin and low speed capabilities. Originally equipped with a 108 hp Lycoming Reciprocating engine, many PA-12’s in Canada and Alaska have been re-engined with 150 hp. Although this plane was manufactured in 1947, it is certified airworthy and may see many more years of use.


This plane is parked between Anchorage International Airport and Lake Hood aerodrome which has a standard runway in addition to a massive float plane base on Lake Hood. There are about 4,100 registered aircraft in the Anchorage area. Since Alaska is so vast, small private aircraft are used extensively for transportation to and from the bush.
