Cub History and Background

The J-3 is a small, simple, light aircraft with tandem seating, originally intended for flight training. It became one of the most popular light aircraft of all time. The Cub's simplicity, affordability and popularity has enabled it to retain a strong presence all around the world, right up to the present day.

Of special note is the ‘Flitfire’, the name being a derivative of the famous ‘Spitfire’ aircraft. These were not actual RAF aircraft. Forty nine of these aircraft were assembled in the U.S in 1941 –
painted with British Royal Air Force roundels – and subsequently raffled off to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund to aid injured British Flyers.

The Cub was fitted with a range of engines and in this package you will find both Continental and Franklin powered versions. The PA-11 Cub Special was considered by many to be the ultimate Cub and was effectively an intermediate stage between the famous J-3 and the equally famous PA-18 Super Cub. With its 90hp engine, the 'Cub Special' was known for high performance without sacrificing the light-weight simplicity of the J-3 airframe.

Principle changes from the J-3 were an enclosed cowling over the more powerful engine, with the engine thrust angle canted downwards 4 degrees; the fuel tank was increased in capacity to
17 gallons and relocated to the port wing; the wing struts, windscreen, seats and cross bracing were re-designed which give better aerodynamics and also a little more foot room in the front.

The PA-11 is flown mostly from the front seat, although it can be flown solo from either.

In 1952, Mr. Harold Wagner, of the Wagner Aircraft Company wanted to develop a simple aircraft that would give twin-engined performance at low cost. Among his experiments was the Wagner Twin Cub, which was effectively two PA-11 Cub specials joined together. The resulting aircraft was so unconventional, that Mr. Wagner called it “The Thing”. It flew well, although wing loading allowed only one of the two fuselages to carry people or payload. Not finding any commercial success, the aircraft was eventually converted back to two separate PA-11s.

The Piper L-4 ‘Grasshopper’ of WWII was the military version of the J-3 Cub. Of the 5,500 L-4 variants produced between 1942 and 1945, the vast majority went to US Army Ground Forces and
Field Artillery for use as Air Observation Posts. In both air and ground forces, the L-4 was used as a flying Jeep, carrying priority mail and personnel between HQs and command posts. Its Continental engine produced only 65hp, yet its excellent short field performance enabled operation from the smallest of improvised airstrips, including roads adjacent to command posts.

L-4’s on floats were used in almost every theatre of operations in World War II, perhaps most notably in Italy, following the Salerno landings. Unlike combat aircraft, the L-4 was unarmed and unarmoured. It was one of the smallest and slowest aircraft of WWII with a cruising speed of only 75 mph. Nevertheless, it has been claimed that with a single L-4 directing the fire power of an entire Division, it could bring a greater weight of explosives to bear on a target then any other aircraft of the period, with the exception of the B-29 Superfortress carrying an atomic bomb.

It was widely used in Europe, where more than 2,700 served with the Field Artillery. Of those that survived the war, about 150 were shipped back to the US, with most of the remainder sold to civilian purchasers in Britain, France, Switzerland, Denmark and elsewhere in Europe.

More than 60 years on, many of these are still flying, and an increasing number are being restored to their original military configuration and markings.

A truly distinguished ‘warbird’, long to be remembered!
