Former commercial pilot and entrepreneur Kenneth (“Ken”) Goggans is an investment professional focused on companies in the oil and gas sector. In addition to founding several businesses in the energy industry, Ken Goggans helped in the start up process of the aircraft production firm American Legend Aircraft Company, a business among a select few that were granted permission to reproduce the classic Piper Cub plane.
The iconic Piper J-3 Cub is renowned among pilots and dedicated plane enthusiasts alike for its reliability, simplicity, and the nostalgia that it inspires. This light plane has seen many uses throughout its nearly 80-year history, serving as the plane in which many pilots learned to fly during the middle decades of the 20th century. Though known under a different name in the military, the Piper J-3 Cub was also the plane upon which many pilots relied in both World War II and Vietnam.
Love for the Piper Cub has also inspired several yearly fly-in events, where aircraft fans can observe several of the planes in flight, inspect them up close on the ground, and witness a variety of events that honor the spirit of the Piper Cub. Two of the more popular multi-day fly-in events occur every year in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, and Lompoc, California.
