Aero-TV at SnF22: A New Take On a Beloved Airplane

CubCrafters is Upping the Super in Super Cub

Yakima Washington’s CubCrafters is offering superb re-imaginings of Piper’s classic Super Cub aircraft. The company’s models deliver capabilities vastly beyond the purview of the original Super Cub, and offer operators features that make their Part 23 certified aircraft formidable back-country machines.

Sitting atop the CubCrafters lineup is the appositely named Top Cub, which boasts a one-thousand-pound useful-load, thanks in part to a fuel-injected, 215-hp, Lycoming O-360-C4P engine and a 76-inch, Sensenich, constant-speed propeller.

For all its grunt and impressive load-hauling capability, the Top Cub retains the docile flight-characteristics, low-speed controllability, and STOL performance that have endeared the Super Cub to generations of pilots.

To the subject of pilot generations, CubCrafters aircraft are offered in both conventional (tail-wheel) and tricycle (nose-wheel) undercarriage configurations. The company’s forward-thinking engineers took into account the fact that many modern pilots—owing to the prevalence of tricycle undercarriages—lack tailwheel endorsements, and designed their products accordingly.

In keeping with the aircraft’s backcountry mission, the Top Cub’s nose-wheel articulates a full nine-inches—thereby affording enhanced directional control on unimproved runways.

Cub Crafters offers four models ranging from its lightweight Carbon Cub to its preeminent Top Cub. Parties seeking additional information about CubCrafters aircraft can learn more in the accompanying Aero News video, or at
