Cubcrafters Delivers 200th LSA

Claims Title Of 'Top-Selling US-Made LSA Manufacturer'

As we work our way to this week's much-awaited US Sport Aviation Expo and a chance to concentrate on all things LSA; the next month, February, will see the delivery of the 200th CC11 series Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) from Yakima, Washington-based light aircraft designer and manufacturer, CubCrafters.

This milestone solidifies what CubCrafters' reports is their envious position as the number-one selling United States made LSA manufacturer, in terms of both fleet size and annual sales. CubCrafters offers two models of LSA, the 100 horsepower Sport Cub S2 and the 180 horsepower Carbon Cub SS. The Carbon Cub SS has won virtually every Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) competition in which it has been entered.

“It is most gratifying to see the market respond to our combination of quality and performance. As the market leader we take our responsibility seriously – we are spending as much time developing our fleet support infrastructure as we are working on product development. Both are high priorities here at CubCrafters,” commented CubCrafters General Manager, Randy Lervold.

Bucking industry trends, CubCrafters continues on a path of increased sales and manufacturing capability. In December the company added 15,000 square feet of manufacturing space and a dedicated Research and Development shop. The expansion also creates job opportunities. Openings in several departments have been posted and can be reviewed at the CAREERS link on the company website. In addition to bolstering production and shortening delivery times of existing models, CubCrafters has a number of active projects underway.

CubCrafters was founded in 1980 by current owner and Chairman Jim Richmond, is located at Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport (YKM) in Yakima, WA. CubCrafters offers three all new, FAA-certified, ready-to-fly, aircraft: the second generation SPORT CUB S2, the follow on airplane to the original SPORT CUB… the long awaited redesign of the classic airplane that inspired the light sport category; The CARBON CUB, a stronger and more powerful version of the S2 with 180 horse power available for take-off and climb, making it the most powerful LSA aircraft in production; and TOP CUB, with useful load of over 1000 lbs.
