Since the original publication Provides a classic portrait of the Piper family and the strategies tha. While not the most gripping book I have read Mr Piper and His Cubs provides a thorough timeline of the development of the Piper Aircraft company Being a pilot and a want to be owner of a Super Cub I found it interesting to learn about the founding of Piper the development of the Super Cub and the company's history of participation in WWII In fact I think the Cub's participation in some of our nation's wars is one of the fascinating parts of the book This book might be dry for the average reader but would probably be of some interest to pilots

CHARACTERS Mr Piper and His Cubs

Mr Piper and His CubsT produced the world's most famous plane the J 3 Cub From the Chummy through the military L 4 75 photo. Essential reading for aviators The only significant demerit I give is for the author's treating Piper in utter isolation from all other general aviation manufacturers and pioneers Just the same it's a well told tale
