Defining A Piper Cub
If not the Vagabond, then where should the line be drawn? Is anything pre-WWII considered a Cub, eliminating the PA-11, 12 and 14? Should Cubs from other manufacturers be considered Cubs, or as separate developments?
Just looking for more guidance and consensus on this. McNeight 22:18, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
- Fair enough on the Vagabond and successors. I suppose we should at least limit it to aircraft tandem seating rather than side-by-side that use the basic cub fuselage and/or wing. ericg ✈ 01:04, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
- I wish it were that simple. The J-4 is a side-by-side Cub (named the Cub Coupe by Piper), while the J-5 is a 3 seat Cub called the Cub Cruiser. Personally, I don't mind leaving them out, as they aren't what most pilots would consider a Piper Cub. This would also eliminate the PA-12 and PA-14, as they were follow-ons to the J-5.
- The list could be knocked down to just the most relevant variants that are considered "true" Cubs: E-2, J-2, J-3, PA-11, PA-18. However, I don't want to make the call on where to draw the line without a little more input. McNeight 01:29, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
