The Piper J-3 Cub, with its distinctive yellow paint scheme, is regarded as one of the most popular and best known light aircraft of all time. The small, simple, light airplane was built between 1937 and 1947 by the Piper Aircraft Co. With the growing realization that the U.S. might be drawn into war, the Civilian Pilot Training Program(CPTP) was formed to train new pilots for possible service in the U.S. military. Seventy-five percent of all new pilots in the CPTP were trained on the J-3. Wartime demand would increase the production rate to an unbelievable one Piper Cub being built every 20 minutes. The military version was designated as the L-4, which only required the aircraft to be painted in an olive drab paint scheme. An icon of the era, and of American general aviation, the J-3 has long been loved by pilots and the general public alike.
