Piper J3 Cub

The Piper J3 Cub is the quintessential small aircraft.  It is a classic design from the World War II era, and is notorious for being the trainer aircraft for almost every pilot in the United States Military for that war.  With it's classic lines, timeless yellow paint (only REAL Cubs are yellow), and it's ability to bring a smile to the face of even the most stern pilot, the J3 will make a pilot, a REAL pilot, out of you.  This aircraft qualifies as a Light Sport Aircraft, and can be found on either its traditional standard landing gear configuration or on floats on the lakes.  We also offer seaplane training and ratings in this aircraft.
