GreyCat Aviation tailwheel training is flown in a 1941 Piper J-5A Cub Cruiser based at the Hampton Roads Executive Airport (KPVG) using the many uncontrolled fields in the local area.

The Piper J-5 ´Cub Cruiser´ (Army L-4F) is a larger, more powerful version of the Piper J-3 Cub. It was designed just two years after the J-3 Cub and differed by having a wider fuselage with the pilot sitting in the front seat and two passengers sitting in the rear seat. Originally equipped with a 75-hp Continental engine, the plane´s cruising speed was 75 mph. Though officially a three-seater, it would be more accurately described as a "two-and-a-half-seater", as two adults would find themselves quite cramped in the wider rear seat.
