PIPER PA-18 "SUPER CUB"
Even though it is nowadays only used for civilian tasks, the Piper PA-18 Super Cub was originally designed as a military training and recce plane. Its maiden flight took place in November 1949 and until 1994 some 10,000 Super Cub were built (with production being stopped between 1983 and 1988).
The Austrian Armed Forces also appreciated this low-cost plane and used it for pilot training from 1957 to 1965. At AIRPOWER16 a Piper PA-18/90 is presented in the Static Display.
