This repaint is of the default Piper Cub J-3, designed by Microsoft and ACES teams. I did not create this aircraft, just the paint for it. I will guide you through the easy installation.

First: Right click on the file "ContinentalJ-3" and go to --> Start/My Computer/Local Disk (:C) (or whatever drive FSX is installed on)/ Program Files (Program Files x86 if in Windows 7)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Simobjects/Airplanes/Piper_J3Cub.

Next: Right click and paste "ContinentalJ-3" in the Cub's folder.

Third: Find the file "aircraft.cfg" in the Cub folder. Open it with notepad and paste this text into the next space after the last paint. Replace the "X" with the next number in the sequence, as in 4, 5, 6. If this is your first Cub repaint, you will be putting in a 3.

description="The simple, inexpensive Piper J-3 Cub lifted a generation of pilots into the skies for the first time. Introduced in 1938, the Piper Cub made learning to fly accessible to many more people. One estimate states that 75 percent of American aviators in World War II learned to fly in the Cub. Flying low and slow with its doors open, the Piper Cub revives the roots of aviation."

Thank you for downloading, enjoy the paint.
