The characteristics and potential of a Super Cub, hot start issues with a Piper Arrow

(0 votes)


Q: Hi Steve,

I’m thinking about buying a tube and fabric taildragger and I’ve heard a lot about the Piper Super Cub. But when I look at a Super Cub I don’t get it. Why is the Super Cub called the “ultimate bushplane?” It just looks like an old-style airplane.

From what I can tell it’s not very big, it doesn’t go fast, and there’s nothing about a Super Cub that seems very modern, or even slightly sophisticated. There’s not even much room in the fuselage.

Can you shed some light on this?
