Description

The Piper Cub is without argument the most iconic aircraft in American history. Beginning production in the late 1930’s, the Cub was intended for primary training, a lot of which was for future U.S. Army pilots during World War II. It’s legacy continued throughout civilian aviation and became a pilot and family’s best friend. Known for their charm, distinct personality, and friendly yet challenging handling characteristics, the Piper Cub makes a phenomenal primary trainer. It’s no secret, however, that it’s main purpose is to take Jamie up to watch infamous Wisconsin sunsets.

Own an Aircraft?

Flight Instruction can be provided in your own aircraft, as long as the aircraft is proven to be properly maintained and is airworthy. All maintenance records and aircraft logbooks will be throughly reviewed before any instruction is given. The aircraft will need to be properly insured for the mission.

Aircraft: Owner/operator covers all expenses incurred.

Instructor Price: $45/hr

Flight Reviews

Want something different for a change? Come and take your Biannual FAA Flight Review in a Piper J-3 Cub and challenge yourself in a new airplane!

All Flight Reviews will be conducted to FAA regulatory standards, consisting of at least 1 hour of ground instruction, and 1 hour of flight instruction. You should expect to review any applicable FAR Part 91 regulatory material, as well as general information from the AIM, VFR sectional charts, aerodynamics, and aircraft performance data. While in flight, you should be proficient in preflight procedures, airport operations, and any PTS/ACS maneuver that applies to your type of licensure. Note that unusual attitudes and stall spin avoidance/recovery will be of special emphasis. In the event that a pilot should need instruction beyond the review day, an hourly instruction rate will then be applied. If you use good judgement and can do the basics, you’ll just just fine. However, do not come here thinking you’re getting a “pencil whipped” free signature. We actually care about you.

Aircraft: See pricing details above.

Instructor Price: $100 flat rate (current pilots)

Instructor Price: $150 flat rate (non-current pilots)
