Aero-TV: Refining The Design -- CubCrafters Continues to Thrive in 2013

CubCrafters' "Maximum" LSA Continues To Evolve

A little on the controversial side of the LSA equation, there is no arguing that the CubCrafters Carbon Cub is one seriously gifted flying machine.

We must also note that every year, of late, the same old names show up in a list of LSA builders who seem to be standing up to the test of time. 'CubCrafters" is one that flirts with the top of the list, every time. With offerings for certificated, experimental and LSA airframes, CubCrafters has established a tough rep for building tough planes that fly well, and perform even better.

And, thus, the company has much to brag about -- and they do... “The Carbon Cub SS is a thoroughly modern, high performance airplane that has taken the fundamentally superior design of the Piper Super Cub and reinvented it using 21st Century materials (such as carbon fiber) and computer-aided design technology. Superior engineering results in the Carbon Cub SS having 50 percent fewer parts and being 250 pounds lighter than a similarly equipped Super Cub. Mounting a lightweight 180 horsepower engine to this airframe results in a horsepower to weight ratio of just 7.33 pounds (compared, for example, to a Cessna 172R's 15.33 pounds).

That results in a sea level climb rate of 2,100 feet per minute (compared to 650 fpm for a 172) - a deck angle that inspires involuntary expletives. No other LSA takes off or lands in a shorter distance, with better low speed manners.”
