History:
The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. The aircraft has a simple, lightweight design which gives it good low-speed handling properties and short-field performance. The Cub is one of the 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.
(There is also a clipped wing version of the J3 and that is what I choose to do here)
