The Tri-Cubby is 75% of the original J-3 Piper cub. With modern materials and technology the performance has been vastly improved. The purchase price is low and operational costs are kept to a minimum due to the use of automotive fuel as apposed to AVGAS. The Tri-Cubby can be registered as a three axis micro-light or a non type certified light aircraft. The Cubby is available in tri-gear or tail dragger. The price is dependable on the choice of engine. The option to have the Tri-Cubby interchangeable between tri-gear and tail dragger is also available on request as an option.
