1937 Piper Cub J3

This old Cub had been disassembled and in storage for over 20 years and we believe this might have been its first flight in 45-50 years was quite worn when purchased by its current owner who had always wanted a Cub. We Brought it back to life with a full restoration including a few upgrades such as an 85 horsepower engine, but was done while maintaining the character of this early Cub. The owner still has the original 40HP engine for it to maintain its originality. We believe this might be one of the oldest Piper J3 Cubs flying today.

Ground up restoration completion. See plane owners testimonial.

The current owner and his brother had originally restored this Cub in the 70s and flew it for many years. Over the next 30 plus years the airplane became quite worn and aged and was ready for another restoration. With his brother passing years prior the owner attempted to take on the project himself. After years of slow progress he realized he no longer had the time to complete such a task on his own. He sought out our assistance and delivered the aircraft in many boxes, in parts and pieces, and some of the fabric work having been done prior to systems and interior being installed.

With owner assistance and in a matter of months this Super Cub was in the air and making its rounds during the fly-in season.

Paint and fabric covering.

James started building his experimental Cub and after accumulating parts and pieces from multiple sources he realized he had gotten in over his head. He brought what he had to our shop for builder-assistance work and after reverting back many steps we ultimately got the airplane assembled the way he wanted it using our expertise to advise him along the way. He now has an experimental LSA Cub.

This 20 year old aircraft that was in its original state was in desperate need of some paint, interior refurbishment, and TLC.

Travis's PA-18

Originally a government contracted aircraft this Cub was in an off-field landing which resulted in a landing gear collapse and a prop strike. After receiving the airplane in our shop we jigged the fuselage, repaired the damage, repaired the cowling & fabric, installed an overhauled motor and a new propeller, and got the airplane to air-worthy status again. We also made a few modifications including metal headliner and exterior baggage compartment.
