Our Airplane

1946 Piper J3C-65 Cub N7238H

The Piper Cub was the foundation of pilot training for thousands of newcomers to the field during and after World War II. Ours has a 90-horsepower engine, seaplane propeller, and auxiliary fuel tank for greater performance and reliability into the 21st century. There is something about the control harmony, classic looks, and ease of a Cub that has attracted pilots to them for nearly a century. We're proud to say that it's our business to introduce a new generation of pilots to this exceptional airplane.

Available for rental from $150/hour.

Solo rental not permitted.
