The Piper J-3 Cub is a small, simple, light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. With tandem (fore and aft) seating, it was intended for flight training but became one of the most popular and best-known light aircraft of all time. The Cub's simplicity, affordability and popularity - as well as its large production numbers, with nearly 20,000 built in the United States - invokes comparisons to the Ford Model T automobile.

The aircraft's standard chrome yellow paint has come to be known as "Cub Yellow" or "Lock Haven Yellow".

If you are a fan of Electric version, with the big pilot door, you can easy change the battery after every flight.
