49 Special Edition ‘Flitfire’ Cubs were donated by Piper Aircraft and by Piper Dealers to help financially fund the British War effort. NC1776 was the first of these. It was flown around the USA by many notable pilots including Orville Wright. Some of these aircraft were raffled off. Some were used to raise money by barnstorming. NC1776 has been restored to museum display status. 12 of the Flitfires are still listed in flying status with the FAA.
First built in 1938, the J-3 Cub is the aircraft that taught America to fly. Almost 20,000 were built in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania ending production in 1947.
