Item # 3PP-5, The First Cub

List Price List Price {QUOTE} ( Quantity Discount Available )

"The Cub". Perhaps the most famous name in American aviation history. Instantly recognized by all flying enthusiasts, it represents that perky little yellow monoplane that taught generations of our country's pilot's to fly. Built by the thousands both before and after World War II, these planes are still a common sight in America's skies. Its ancestors are not as well known. Less familiar, indeed, almost forgotten, is the first Cub model, the Taylor E-2. From it's crude beginnings in 1930, the E-2 Cub went on to spawn over 12 thousand descendents, becoming one or the most widely produced planes in the world. Yet, while the "J-3" and "Super Cub" are famous, the E-2 Cub remains largely unheralded in the annals of aviation history. Because the Taylor E-2 was the precursor of the entire Taylor-Piper family of lightplanes, it deserves its own historical recognition and treatment. This book tells the E-2 story. 89 pgs, 8.5 x 11, SB, many photos.
