n 1970, Transavia captain Hans Steinbacher founded the Transavia Flying Club together with some colleagues. A damaged Piper L-18C Super Cub was purchased and was completely overhauled by Transavia's maintenance service. A Cessna 150 was added and a little later two Cessna/Reims F152. and a single Cessna, the only 4-seater in the fleet. All aircraft were painted in the colors of Transavia Airlines. The club was stationed at Schiphol Airport East. The airport became too busy and there was no longer room for general aviation. After 30 years it was decided to stop the activities. The 1952-built Piper PA-19 Super Cub PH-CWA was built as a Piper L-18B-PI under USAF number 52-2465 and in service with the RNethAF till 1963 with the registrations R-79, 8A-79, 52-2465. After that it went to the RLS(Dutch Government Flight Training School) which modified it to a PA-19. In October 1975 it has been bought by W. van Duin who sold it to the UK in October 1979.
