Developed from Taylorcraft aircraft, the Cub was a very successful and widely used trainer in military and civil use. It found many other uses as a spotter, communication and ambulance aircraft as well as many other fields.

Civil aircraft were often a characteristic yellow colour and many military aircraft were olive drab and light grey.
