Deck the Halls – with a Cub

Sporty’s annual Christmas ornament announced

If you can’t have a Cub in your hangar, Sporty’s can at least provide one for your Christmas tree.

Sporty’s commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Piper Cub, and Sporty’s 2013 Legend Cub Sweepstakes, with this year’s crystal Christmas ornament. The limited edition collector’s item features an elegantly etched Cub in flight.

“You’d have to look far and wide to find a pilot who doesn’t like the Cub,” said Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “This year, we had an easy choice for our annual ornament.

Nearly 20,000 Cubs were built in the United States with dozens of civilian and military variants. Thousands of Cubs are still flying today.

Sporty’s Cub ornament comes with a bright red ribbon for hanging and is boxed for gift giving with some historical notes about the airplane.

The 2012 Sporty’s Crystal Christmas Ornament [9833-12A] is available for $24.95 and may be ordered at or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
