The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft built between 1938 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. The Cub has a simple, lightweight design which gives it excellent low-speed handling properties and short-field performance. With nearly 20,000 built in the United States. Its simplicity, affordability and popularity invokes comparisons to the Ford Model T automobile.
The Cub was originally intended as a trainer and as a general aviation aircraft. The capable Cub was also well suited for a variety of military uses such as reconnaissance, liaison and ground control. Produced in large numbers during World War II as the L-4 Grasshopper. Many Cubs are still flying today. Notably, as highly prized bush aircraft.
The aircraft's standard chrome yellow paint has come to be known as "Cub Yellow" or "Lock Haven Yellow"
