|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.
If you have any questions about this legislation, please contact Josh Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 7-5400.
Introduced as SB602
