The Piper Cub was originally built by Piper Aircraft Corporation. It was very popular with the flying public because of its price, light weight, and performance. It was also used by the military beginning in 1941 under the name L-4 Grasshopper. Between 1941 and 1945, the Army procured almost 6,000 Piper Aircraft. During WWII, "Grasshoppers" performed a wide variety of functions throughout the world such as directing artillery fire, pilot training, glider pilot instruction, courier service and front-line liaison.
