The Piper J-3 Cub is a simple American aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. With tandem seating, it was originally only intended for flight training. However this little plane became one of the most popular and best-known light aircraft of all time. The simplicity, affordability and popularity of the Cub leads people to compare it to the Ford Model T automobile. The aircraft's standard chrome yellow paint has even become known as “Cub Yellow.”
