Video: flying a 1941 Piper J-3 Cub

The J-3 Cub has a legendary reputation among pilots – it taught thousands to fly in the 1940s, and it’s still a fun way to get in the air today. In this video, you’ll first fly in a Piper to a beautiful airport with a grass runway (the modern way to fly). Then go flying in a 1941 Cub (the classic way to fly). Oh yeah, the Cub window is open of course!
