See a 1943 Piper HE-1 at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Musem. Year: 1943

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Lycoming O-235 112HP

In 1942 the Navy ordered 100 HE-1 airplanes for air ambulance service. These were based on Piper’s J5-C Cruiser, a descendant of the J3 Cub. In 1943 the HE designation was changed to AE when the Army reassigned H to helicopters. The opening turtledeck (for the Stokes stretcher) and bright yellow color are distinctive and several of these airplanes have been restored for flight.
