What Is Wings Over Piper?
Wings Over Piper is an annual event
for Radio Controlled Aircraft Enthusiasts
to come to the birthplace of the Piper
Cub (Lock Haven, Pennsylvania) to fly
their airplane on the Piper field. This
is the same airport that supported the
Piper Aircraft Corporation in Lock Haven
during the operation of the assembly
plant. While all radio controlled aircraft
are welcome to fly, the goal of Wings
Over Piper is to assemble and fly as
many model Piper Cubs as possible. As
shown in the photo, we had a large
number of cubs assembled at the 2004
event ranging from small electrics to
1/3rd scale models, as well as several
full scale airplanes. An even greater
number of model cubs is expected and
encouraged for each year's event.
Even though this is a Piper oriented event featuring
the Cub, participation is in no way limited to Cub
owners. We encourage you to bring and fly any
airworthy aircraft. All aircraft will be subject to
inspection before flight.
