About Paul and Nancy Frith
The Friths owned a Cessna 172 when they were living in Oklahoma and Arkansas. They taught the ground school for a Beech dealership in Little Rock before moving to Fairbanks in 1971.
Though working full times as Health Officer for the northern half of Alaska, Paul was able to pursue twin engine and instrument ratings, becoming a flight instructor as well. He flew throughout the interior of Alaska in his spare time hunting, fishing, and delivering goods to the villages.
After retiring and purchasing a winter home in the lower 48, they bought the Top Cub. The DVD describes performance details of this bush plane.
