CubCrafters Helps ANN Present 2013 Oshkosh Special Event Coverage

Sport Aviation's STOL Champion, CubCrafters, Helps ANN Bring You Oshkosh!!!

“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.”

For ANN's part, we must 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.

CubCrafters operates in a modern 40,000 square foot facility on the edge of McAllister Field Airport in Yakima, Washington. They say that it's an idyllic spot for flying and testing their planes... "Big skies, punctuated on the Western horizon by the always snow-capped peaks of the Cascade mountain range. 290 days of sunshine each year. The nearby countryside dotted with wineries, orchards and rangeland."

Yeah, they have a tough life.

But they do operate a tight ship... they tell us that, "It's worth noting that, unlike many manufacturing facilities, the CubCrafters factory houses all departments involved with the design, support and sales of our airplanes. This close proximity results not only in operational efficiencies, but also in a tangible sense of teamwork and shared purpose that is at the very core of our business. It is an indispensable part of what makes a CubCrafters airplane so special."
