    The Piper Cub is not a certified plane. It falls into the micro light category. I'm sure if we start including them, then hang-gliders and para glider will feature near the top of the list.

    You may have confused the Cub look-alike single seat homebuilt Ultralight/Microlight with the “real” Piper Cub…

    Some Piper Cub versions can qualify under Light Sport rules under 1320lbs gross wt, but not as a Microlight in the US

    The Piper Cub J-2 was originally certified as manufactured with Type Certificate ATC-595, then later as J-3 with A-691 and can be operated in Standard, Utility, or Restricted Categories depending on limitations in the TC/AFM

    All variants up to the PA-18 Super Cub will have a TC issued from the factory

    You can also build a Piper Cub (J-3 to PA-18) from scratch or from parts in the US and certify in Experimental Category as well

    It most certainly is.
