The Piper J-3 Cub (ICAO: J3 / WAKE: LIGHT) is tandem-seat light trainer aircraft. Created in Second Life by EG Aircraft, the plane is a replica of the real-life J-3 Cub that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft.


The real-life Piper J-3 Cub is a small, simple, light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. With tandem (fore and aft) seating, it was intended for flight training but became one of the most popular and 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. The aircraft's standard chrome yellow paint has come to be known as “Cub Yellow” or "Lock Haven Yellow".[1]
