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.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's 710,231 residents (as per the 2010 United States Census) live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska is the least densely populated state of the U.S.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska
