Navigation Systems, Better Cooling, Lighting, And More
The New Year will see CubCrafters making a number of updates to
their production aircraft.
“We’re constantly on the lookout for ways to improve
our aircraft," said CubCrafters General Manager Randy Lervold. We
pursue these improvements through in-house design initiatives, and
also with off-the-shelf technical advancements, such as more
advanced navigation systems. The changes for 2011 are incremental,
but important, refinements to what are already superb aircraft.
Another positive is that we were able to incorporate most of these
improvements with no increase in pricing for 2011.”
Changes for the standard-setting Carbon Cub SS include:
- Ignition backup battery system.
- Adjustable cowl flaps for increased engine cooling efficiency
in high ambient temperature conditions.
- Iridium spark plugs (Denso IK27) for improved combustion
efficiency and longevity.
- Detented cables for mixture, carburetor heat and cabin heat
controls; eliminates “cable creep”.
- Lightweight Lighting & Strobe Package now includes an LED
landing light for lower power consumption and lower weight.
- Executive GLASS Panel avionics package now includes Dynon D180
- No price increase over 2010.
Changes for the Sport Cub S2 include:
