Light aircraft manufacturer, CubCrafters, has announced an easy entry into their popular kit program with the Carbon Cub EX-2 Discovery Kit. The kit introduces builders to the CubCrafters system, and allows them to envision the process of covering a tube & fabric aircraft. Builders will appreciate the quality of the parts and materials included, and the thorough documentation with clear step-by-step instructions. Upon completion, Discovery Kit builders will have a finished rudder assembly and a running start on their Carbon Cub EX-2 sport utility aircraft.
The simple kit includes a rudder for the company’s famous Carbon Cub EX-2 aircraft kit, plus a Poly Fiber fabric envelope, tape, rivets, adhesive, sealer, and primer… everything a builder needs to complete the rudder assembly except paint. CubCrafters includes a printed manual, a USB Flash drive with manual and instruction video, as well as an aluminum CubCrafters keychain for use when the airplane kit is completed.
CubCrafters’ Carbon Cub EX-2 is an Experimental Amateur-Built (E-AB) kit that features a lightweight airframe and powerful engine that provide formidable off-airport performance. Combining modern design methods with lightweight materials, a 180 horsepower engine and a useful load over 900 lbs., the Carbon Cub EX-2 is the aircraft of choice among backcountry pilots. Not only is the Carbon Cub EX-2the best-in-class aircraft, it is the best-in-class kit.
The Carbon Cub EX-2 Discovery Kit will be available starting May 1, 2016 at a price of $995 from CubCrafters Certified Sales Centers around the world: cubcrafters.com/csc. Buyers of the Discovery Kit will receive a credit for the full value ($995) toward their purchase of the Carbon Cub EX-2 Fuselage Kit.
CubCrafters, founded in 1980 by current owner and CEO, Jim Richmond, is located at McAllister Field Airport (YKM) in Yakima, WA. CubCrafters’ roots are in the 70-year history of classic taildragger aviation, but its products and services are innovative and completely modern.
CubCrafters designs and manufactures Part 23 Certified, LSA and Experimental aircraft. The company’s newest introduction, XCub, substantially expands the mission profile of sport utility aircraft with its higher speed, longer range and larger payload. The Top Cub, with a useful load of over 1,000 lbs., is the most up-to-date iteration of the historic Super Cub available. The Carbon Cub has redefined expectations of “backcountry aircraft” with its light weight, powerful engine, and breathtaking performance. Three variants are offered: the original, Carbon Cub SS is a production LSA. Carbon Cub EX-2 is the most complete aircraft kit available, and Carbon Cub FX is a clever E-AB “builder assist” program.
