Piper Super Cub

Piper Super Cub plane

The Piper Super Cub was first certified in 1949, powered at the time by a Continental C90-12F. Over time, the power was increased and the final production run at Piper saw the installation of the Lycoming O-320 150hp engine. The PA-18 Super Cub was the last Piper production airplane to carry the Cub nameplate. This seaplane was restored and built by WMU's Aviation Department.
