Want the full Super Cub experience, to be able to explore every facet of what
still makes the Super Cub one of the most popular aircraft in the world? Then
this is the package fore you.
The complete package contains 18 models, to let you explore a vast range of
operations and flying experiences.
The Super Cub is one of aviation's most successful aircraft stories. In close to
40 years of production, over 9,000 were built, and a number of specialty
companies continue to produce replicas and further developments to this day.
Introduced in 1949 by Piper Aircraft, it was developed from the Piper PA-11, and
traces its lineage back through the J-3 to the Taylor E-2 Cub of the 1930s.
The Super Cub remained in production with Piper through until 1981, when almost
7500 had been built over an uninterrupted 32 year production run. Piper
continued building Super Cubs on behalf of Texas based WTA who held the
manufacturing and marketing rights from 1981 until 1988. In 1988 Piper resumed
marketing responsibility for the Super Cub and continued low rate production.
Financial troubles meant that Super Cub production ceased in 1992, before
resuming once more the following year. Finally in late 1994 Piper announced that
the Super Cub would not form part of its model line for 1995 and that it would
cease production after the last of 24 on order for distributor Muncie Aviation
were completed. (source: Airliners.net)
Famed as a Bush Plane on wheels, floats and skis, Super Cubs can be found all
over the world in a great variety of roles, from a general GA aircraft to banner
towing and glider tug.
Today, companies such as CubCrafters, Backcountry, Turbine and Mackey offer
kits, parts and fully assembled aircraft for those who want to continue flying
this outstanding aircraft design.
The aircraft in the Flight Replicas packages depict modern (e.g..
restored/modified) versions of the older models.
