Piper L 4H

An inconspicuous labourer of World War II, the 30`s, and postwar era, It was produced in many versions with different identification. It entered history first as a civilian, and later as a military aircraft. The 8673 aircraft that were made enjoyed great popularity in many countries from Europe, through Africa to the Pacific Rim and was nicknamed the “Flying Jeep” or “Grasshopper”. Most Pipers were fitted with Continental A-65 engines, but the armaments and accessories varied according to version and purpose. The Piper Cub became the model for a series of successors of the same basic design, successfully used until today.
