J-4 Cub – This Classic Piper Taildragger Is Still
A Good Buy - Here's Why...
The Piper J-4 Cub was in production from 1939 to 1941. It is a great little 2 seater airplane that is still very much liked by recreational pilots to this very day. If you are looking for a fun "historic" little 2 seater, this might be the airplane for you.
IMPORTANT: When you are looking at buying this airplane you have to realize that many previous owners over the years have changed out the original engines for more powerful ones. So make sure you inquire as to what engine they have in it. It could be that when the original engine came up for rebuild, they swapped it out for a higher power one that would give the airplane more performance.
Here's 2 Reasons Why The Piper J-4 Cub Is Still A Great Airplane To Own...
Reason #1 - There Is A Very Tight Market For This Airplane...
The great thing about owning a J-4 is the fact that there are not a lot of them on the used market at any given time. I searched around the internet and was only able to find 2 good ones that were for sale at this current time.
That is what you want when you are looking to buy an airplane... You don't really want to buy something where there is hundreds of the same ones for sale at the same time. Chances are pretty good your not going to have that problem when you buy a J-4 Cub.
Your going to have to make sure you be patient as you want to get the right one for your needs. Most of the ones for sale have been restored and are going to be low timed. The reason is - most people are not flying their J-4 on multi thousand mile cross country trips. They usually fly them around their local airport for a few hours and then put it away till next weekend.
The biggest advantage about this airplane and the tight market is the fact that once you get one, you now have one! (Obviously..) But that is important because Piper is not making more of these airplanes. So there will be a continued increase in the inventory demand as the years go by and more of these airplanes stop flying.
Reason #2 - It Is A Side By Side 2 Seater...
If you know anything about the J-3 Cub you know that it has row seating. Your going to sit behind the person in front of you. But with the J-4 Cub, you have side by side seating... It is actually a cool looking "old fashion" bench!
The J-3 Cub style seating is very popular and lots of pilots love it... But there are also a lot of people who like the side by side seating as well. And this airplane has that. Now keep in mind that this is a 2 seater from the late 30's and early 40's. Your not going to have a ton of elbow room, but you will have some room and if you like side by side seating - your probably going to enjoy this airplane.
