Aero-TV: CubCrafters 2012 -- Refining an Iconic Airframe

Packing As Much Airplane Into The 'LSA' Category As The FAA Will Allow

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."
