Originally founded as the Taylor Brothers Aircraft Manufacturing Company in September of 1927 by Clarence Gilbert Taylor and Gordon A. Taylor in Rochester, New York. The company was renamed to Taylor Brothers Aircraft Corporation in April of 1928, shortly before Gordon Taylor died in a plane crash on April 24, 1928. The company was enticed to move to Bradford, Pennsylvania with the promise of larger facility and investment capital from local businessmen, including and initial investment of $400 from local oilman William T. Piper. The move was completed in September, 1929. Image File history File links Piper_1930s_Picture. ... Image File history File links Piper_1930s_Picture. ...

Piper Super Cub.
Piper Super Cub.

Piper produced the Piper J-3 Cub, a two seat, 65 horsepower (48 kW) high-wing, single-engine aircraft. The Cub was the first inexpensive training aircraft produced in large numbers. Many former military examples were sold to civilian owners over the 1950-1995 period and seem certain to see many more years in recreational use. The slightly more powerful Piper PA-18 Super Cub is popular for use as a glider tug. Many North Americans still think of all light aircraft as "Piper Cubs."

Cherokee is the common name for the Piper's PA-28 family of aircraft models, which received its type certificate from the FAA in 1960 and is still under production by The New Piper Aircraft Company.
Piper has created many variations on the Cherokee by installing engines ranging from 140 to 235 horsepower (105 to 175 kW), fixed or retractable landing gear, fixed-pitch or constant-speed propellers, and even turbocharging.
At the time of the Cherokee's introduction, Piper's primary single-propeller, all-metal aircraft was the Piper PA-24 Comanche, a larger, faster aircraft with retractable landing gear and a constant-speed propeller.
