Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
Subject: Co-sponsorship “Piper J-3 Cub as State Airplane”
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation designating the Piper J-3 Cub the official state plane of PA. This aircraft was built in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania and played a major role in the growth of the small aircraft aviation industry. The Piper J-3 Cub played a central role in civilian pilot training when war broke out in Europe in 1939. By the time war ended, 80% of the US military pilots had trained on Piper Cubs.

The aircraft’s popularity, price, and availability resulted in comparisons to the Ford Model T.

I introduced this bill last session as SB 717. There is no fiscal impact.
