Are you building your picture yet?  If you are new to Tail Wheel flying and think a Carbon Cub might be for you, this is the ticket.  Ease of operation, reliability and as mentioned it is light and fun and able to go most anywhere.

On the inside, this EX2 has a finely polished carbon fiber interior with black ballistic nylon seats, a one piece carbon floor and seat base with adjustable pilot seat, Amsafe seat belts with shoulder restraints, cargo pockets and a full view sky light with roof vents.  While enjoying 115mph cruise speed on just 6.5gph, you will also navigate using the CubCrafters custom world VFR panel centered around the Garmin area 760 gps and monitor your engine vitals using the EI CGR-30P.  Trig radio and transponder offer the necessary ADS-B out and reliable communications.  Your new Carbon Cub EX2 was built by the West Michigan Aviation Academy in Grand Rapids, MI.  Select students in this STEM based program and under the watchful eye of the technical maintenance staff have been working to build this aircraft over the last two years.  Daily classroom work learning rules, regulations and best practices in an effort to one day work in the industry, put their knowledge to work in the lab building this shining example of exactly what a Carbon Cub should be.  Owning 1226G not only not only gets you a fantastic airplane, but the satisfaction knowing you have helped contribute to advancing aviation just a little bit further.  For more information on this aircraft, contact Mark Keneston  with CubCrafters at 518-410-9404 or mark.keneston@cubcrafters.com.
