We believe that the Piper Cub is the perfect machine for tailwheel instruction. Used by several countries in various wartime efforts, they are the iconic vintage taildragger!
With docile handling characteristics and great short field performance, they have all of the charm of a vintage warbird combined with some modern day luxuries. Ours have disc brakes, VHF Radio / Transponder and more powerful engines. You really are flying a piece of wartime aviation history!
