Hi Vern. I’d like to show you some old pictures of CF-MMJ. It was my dad’s first airplane. Back around 1960.
My dad, my Opa and my uncle learned to fly in your plane. I learned on a j4 coupe aswell.
Cheers from Guelph

Looking for the J4 my Uncle Richard (Dick) Brantner owned in the early 1960's around Jackson, Michigan. Have no N#. I had my first ride in that plane as a wee lad. Any info appreciated.


vernon, e-mail, 11.12.2016 04:20

Charles Fox, e-mail, 06.12.2016 12:56

I soloed in my Dad's J4, NC 27871 and was wondering if it is still aroung?


Jeff Moser, e-mail, 03.06.2016 02:42

I bought a 1940 J4 with a 75 Cont. in Dec of 1964 I paid 850.00 for it and took my Private check ride in a Piper Colt and flew the J4 until July or August of 1968 and then went to flying for the CAP until April of 1973. I loved the coupe I could handle a pretty good crosswind in it. The # was N30975 and I think it may be in Ariz.


Erik Dhelie, e-mail, 12.02.2016 13:41

I have found my green little J4-LN-HAD that I did my first
flying lessons with back in summer 1957 at Drammen FK,Norway.
It is located in a hangar "Dakota" at Sandefjord, Norway.

Bob Mahran, e-mail, 18.06.2015 23:50

Got my Licence in J4 #NC 32977 while in the Army at Pine Bluff Ark. in 1955. Bought it $500 and 3 of us got our licenses before selling it for $500. According to the FAA its no longer in existence. Had difficulty getting to 5000 feet for stalls with my check pilot. I don't remember numbers but I'll never forger NC32977


David Thomasson, e-mail, 17.03.2015 14:18

Did my training and first solo (1976) in a '39 J-4 at New London Airport in Central Virginia. The bench seat made it excellent for dual instruction. Always had to pay attention on takeoff, standing on the right rudder pedal to keep it from careening off the left side of the runway.

I AGREE WITH ONE COMMENT. THE J4 IS PIPERS BEST KEPT SECRET
92 MILES CRUISE AN HOUR ON ABOUT 3 GALS HOUR. DOORS ON EACH SIDE. SLIDING SIDE WINDOWS. A DREAM TO FLY ON SKIIS
YOU CAN FLY THIS AIRPLANE BACKWORDS IF YOU CAN STAND IT AND ARNT IN A HURRY


Chuck Jewell, e-mail, 30.06.2011 23:51

I learned to fly in 1969 and needed something of my own to fly. I saw an add in the paper of an antique airplane for sale. It was a 1941 J-4-E in a T hanger on a small field. It had a variable pitch prop that kept backing off and had to be held in by hand. I do not think it was standard on a J-4-E so when I purchased it I had it replaced with a fixed wooden prop. I haven`t see it stated, but the J-3 had a tandem seating and the J-4-E is a side by side. in 1941 Piper tried to attract car owners by adding chrome. The control sticks were chrome and on the cowling they had 3 strips of chrome on each side. The wings were large and did not require any flaps. In a 30 mph head wind you can hold the ground speed to 0 mph!! It is a sweet plane to fly and whenever I took an instructor up for my Bi annual check ride they spent more time flying it than I did. I completely restored it in 1971 (covered it with seconite, not sure of the spelling, It is a fiberglass cloth. I flew it for many years and finally sold it. By the way, I think Piper put a nose wheel on the J-4 and called it the Tri Pacer??


mel, e-mail, 25.03.2011 18:28

I flew one around wtby ,ct airport for an hour. It flew at 6o mpr glided at 60 mph aan stlled at 35 mph. A clumsy old dog


Stanley Olson, e-mail, 24.12.2010 04:32

I used to have a 1941 J4 in the early fifties. Built up some time in it and sold it for about 500 bucks, about what I gave for it. Last I saw it went to Canadian Registry, it's US N# NC41199. Nice little plane. If you see it somewhere, tell it hello from from me, I still remember you.


Malcolm D. Quick, e-mail, 13.12.2010 23:00

1946 had my first ride in J-4, started work at local airport in exchange for dual time in N-24709. !971 retrired as pilot USAF. Found a J-4 to restore. It turned out to be my first ride and lesson acft. Restored it to 95% show and flew for several years until forced to sell for $1200.00. Have lost track of it. Anyone with info on it, I would love to hear where she is now.
A real joy to fly.


brad, e-mail, 26.11.2010 20:57

Peter Clifford, e-mail, 23.09.2010 02:58

Anybody interested in a copy of a Piper Coupe J4 Service Manual covering care and operation of the j4? I also have a parts manual. They both have detail drawing and technical data. I got these in the mid 1980's and I moving. These will be very useful to a j4 owner. Please contact me vai e mail if interested.


Al Wrisley, e-mail, 21.09.2010 16:49

I owned a J4 in around 1958 with another gentleman. We paid $1200 for it and I flew it out of the Oberlin, OH airport. It had a 75 Continental which, I believe, had been converted to an 85. 8-1 glide ratio as I recall. Of course, with a 20 mph. headwind cars were passing me on the Ohio Turnpike. Loved the plane, though.


Ernie Morris, e-mail, 20.08.2010 00:33

My fisrt airplane ride was in a cub coupe in 1953 at the old Moorestown(NJ) airport.It was a night flight. The pilots name was Stanley Dan.I went on to a CSMEL.instrument,CFI but never had the chance to fly the J-4.


Pat Thomas, e-mail, 28.02.2010 18:45

My brother and I finished a restoration of N27899 a year ago. What a sweet little airplane. We are into it about 26k, which is probably a little more than its worth.


Richard Kelly, e-mail, 24.02.2010 04:21

I bought my 1939 J4A off my wife's uncle 6 years ago, he owned it 40 years before that. I call it the lazy boy. Nice and comfy, flys itself. The best kept Piper secret, mine was upgraded to a C-85-12F with electrics 30 years ago. The best pic for power & economy. Plan on leaving it to my son one day.


Carl Felty, e-mail, 31.01.2010 22:25

I owned J4A N22783, in 66/67. I soloed my first student in it. I got $12 an hour for it with or without me. It now hangs from the ceiling in the main exhibition hall at the Pima County Air Museum in Tucson. It had several owners after me until it was donated. The museum had a history for it and my name was listed as one of the owners. Great to fly.


Len Eisner, e-mail, 04.12.2009 23:22

In the early summer of 41 I soloed in NC 38068 after 5hrs and 40 minutes of dual. The airfield was a small grass pasture and at the time no-one ever suggested a need for a licence. As I recall I paid about 6 dollars an hour, from my 35 cent houly wage, for the plane and instructor, an itinerant drunk named Matt Hayes. I dearly enjoyed flying the Coupe, it was easy to fly and responsive. For what it's worth, I stopped flying in 06 after heart surgery-that really does in your medical.


Ardy, e-mail, 04.07.2009 05:00

Just rebuilding a 1939 J4. Can't wait till it is finished.


DAVID TURNER RN, e-mail, 14.01.2009 09:29

I WISH I HAD A J-4 NO CREAM PUFF JUST A GOOD FLYING J-4, BUT TODAY ITS JUST TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE TO HAVE ONE.
IT'S A SWET LITTLE AIRPLANE MY DAD HAD ONE FOR A TIME. I ENJOYED FLYING IT ON WEEKENDS MY GIRLFRIEND AND I WOULD GO TO THE BEACH IN IT.


Robert Adams, e-mail, 06.01.2009 19:02

Question - Are the tail braces on the J-3 functional, as are the wing struts? Thanks
