The Piper PA-16 Clipper is a single engine, four-seat high-wing light utility aircraft. The Model PA-16 is tube/fabric construction aircraft with a 108 hp Lycoming O-235-C1 engine, developed from Model PA-14 and was  infact a further development of the Piper J-3C. The Piper Model PA-16 flew first in 1947. FAA Type certification was awarded on 18 October 1948. Next to the four-seat Model PA-16, the three-seat Model PA-16S was developed. FAA Type certification for the Model PA-16S was awarded on 20 July 1949. The Piper PA-16 Clipper was introduced in January 1949, and remained in production to November 1949, with 736 aircraft built. However Piper had to change the name when Pan American Airlines objected since Clipper was a copyrighted name synonymous with their flying boats, the PA-16 is still known as Clipper.

The 1949-built Piper PA-16 Clipper c/n 16-500 was registered HB-OOG in Switzerland. In June 1985, the aircraft was registered D-EIOG in Germany. In 1995, the CoA expiered and registration D-EIOG was cancelled. After major overhaul of the Piper PA-16 Clipper the CofA was renewed and the aircraft was restored as D-EIOG in the German register. On 22 August 2015, Piper PA-16 Clipper D-EIOG was seen at Flugplatz Leer-Papenburg in Germany.
