Piper J3 Cub

The Piper J3 Cub is one of the most popular and best known light aircraft ever built. Our Cub is a stock 1946 airplane with the only upgrades being a radio, intercom, and transponder for added convenience and safety. The only thing that comes close to beating the silence of soaring is flying a stock Cub around with the door open enjoying the beautiful Florida scenery!

"There is just something about a Piper J3 Cub, to the uninitiated, you can't explain it; to those who know, no explanation is necessary."

N1113S SGS 1-26D

"480" is a Schweizer 1-26D and was built in Elmira NY. The 1-26 was designed to allow students to move from the 2-33 to a single seat glider. Performance is similar to the 2-33 but with its super low sink rate it makes for an excellent soaring machine. Handling was also improved giving the 1-26 a sportier feel.


N34215 SGS 2-33A

N34215 is also a Schweizer 2-33A and was built in Elmira NY.


N1229S SGS 2-33A

"Peppermint Patty"is a Schweizer 2-33A and was built in Elmira NY. When the Schweizer brothers designed the 2-33 they wanted to insure that the glider could handle the duties of a trainer and they succeeded! The 2-33 is one of the best training gliders ever built and has trained thousands of pilots in the art of soaring.
