William Thomas Piper Sr. (January 8, 1881 – January 15, 1970) was an American airplane manufacturer, aviation businessman, oil industry businessman, and engineer. He was the founding president of the Piper Aircraft Corporation and led the company from 1929 until his death in 1970. He graduated from Harvard University in 1903 and later became known as "the Henry Ford of aviation".

The Piper Cub, a legendary fabric-skinned two-seat puddle jumper, is back, thanks to a new Super Cub clone that is delighting loyal pilots and setting off a protest at the plane's former manufacturer. Amid a wave of liability lawsuits that sent the entire light-plane industry into a crisis, the Cub's maker went out of business. The company that re-emerged, New Piper Aircraft In. said it couldn't get insurance if it resumed building the airplane that had made Piper's name synonymous with grassroots aviation since the 1930s.

The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1938 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. The aircraft has a simple, lightweight design which gives it good low-speed handling properties and short-field performance. The Cub is Piper Aircraft's most-produced model, with nearly 20,000 built in the United States. Its simplicity, affordability and popularity invokes comparisons to the Ford Model T automobile.

"What's a Piper Cub?" is a book about a family being introduced to the fun of light aircraft flying. A child's question leads to a family field trip to the local small airport. There a friend shows them his Piper Cub and offers to take them for a flight.

Written and illustrated by pilots, the book uses aviation terms to describe the fun and sensations of flying in light aircraft.

Children, ages five to nine, are the target age group for the book but it enjoys a popular following of aviation enthusiast of all ages.

Ok but too complex a story for a 5 year old. i didn't think it was that interesting either. we enjoyed talking about the pictures.

I bought this for my 20-month-old grand-daughter on a whim, and it has become our special book. We go to the airport almost every week, where she examines the Cubs and lesser aircraft. (If asked what any other airplane is, she replies: "Maybe a Cessna.") She has two plastic cups for earphones, or she borrows mine to listen to "Arnie" (the computer voice of NOAA weather radio). She has a plastic bucket that is her Cub; she sits in it and cries "Brakes! Cracked! Hot!" while I spin the prop. Then I have to take her around the pattern for a few turns until my shoulders give out.
Oops! This was supposed to be a book review. Well, the book certainly worked for me, since now I have a chum to visit the airport with. The paintings are more remarkable than the text (Helen can pick out the bungee cords, magneto switch, throttle, joystick, the major control surfaces, and even the compass). After a few readings, I tailored the story to a two-year-old's attention span, and now I don't read the words on the page at all, but the story that we have created over the past four months.

Might be a good book to give someone who thinks Piper Cub is a classification of aircraft such as the TV newsreaders who call every small plane a Piper Cub

i'm a might biased, as i was raised and nurtured with a 1946 j3 cub..with my dad in the rear seat and myself in the front..i was convinced at 7 years old that i was the pilot!...with that said,, i found mr weaton's book both innocent and charming...and purchased it for my 10 year old daughter...who will hopefully become a fledgeling aviation enthusiast!...she loved it...and i am happy to have it as part of our collection
