Originally the Taylor Aircraft Company, this firm was reorganized and renamed the Piper Aircraft Corp. in 1937.

in 1938, the Company’s first full year of production, 737 Cubs were built. The 1939 production totaled 1,806 and in 1940 3,016 Cubs were delivered. Production was further stepped up in 1941 and before the end of that year the 10,000th Cub had been completed.

During World War II, the Piper company produced the L-4 Grasshopper light liaison and observation monoplane.

After World War II, Piper re-entered the commercial market with the PA-11 Cub Special, a post-war version of the L-4 Grasshopper, and the new PA-12 Super Cruiser.

During 1949 Piper announced the PA-11 Trainer, PA-14 Family Cruiser, the PA-15, the PA-16 Clipper, the PA-17 Vagabond, and the Piper-Stinson Voyager and Piper-Stinson Station Wagon. The Piper-Stinson Voyager and the Piper-Stinson Station Wagon were added to the Piper range when on 1 December 1948, the Piper took over the Stinson Division from the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation.
