Piper J3 Cub

Year of birth 1946
Originally used at Youngsfield, Cape Town for ab initio training and I bet there are scores of pilots whose first solo was on ZS-BCV
Now standing in a hangar in Stellenbosch and up for sale

yes the Cub is still for sale, as per below, cheers, Jaws

Dear John,

By chance I came across your J3 Cub website. I am the owner of ZS-BCV which as been sitting in a hanger at Stellenbosch as I no longer fly. If you know of anyone who would be interested in buying the aircraft, I would appreciate your passing on my contact details. The aircraft itself is in very good condition but the engine will need replacing as it is close to time-ex and has not flown in nearly three years.

Contact Details:
