Baumann 1500 Straight Floats Okay'd
CubCrafters announced this week the
certification of Baumann 1500 Straight Floats for the Sport Cub...
a plane company representatives tell ANN continues to impress with
For example, the fully-equipped test plane had an empty weight
of 983 lbs... but leapt off the water at gross weight in
less than eight seconds!
"One of the things you notice in Light Sport Aircraft is that
they tend to be kitey... this airplane is light, but it is
definitely not kitey," noted test pilot Len Fox, who conducted
the spin testing this past week.
"I was not prepared for the performance we have seen with this
airplane. It is a Super Cub in Sport Cub guise," added
Chairman Jim Richmond. "I chased the Sport Cub that Len was
spinning with a Husky on amphibs we have here for sale. We were
spinning from 10,000 feet, and the Sport Cub was up there waiting
for us for several minutes before we could get that high. I was not
prepared for that kind of performance. It beat me into the air by a
factor of two to three, and climbed faster too! Light weight does
wonderful things for airplanes. Wow!"
A Sport Cub on Baumann 1500 Straight Floats starts at
CubCrafters, founded in 1980 by current owner and Chairman Jim
Richmond, is located at Yakima Air Terminal/ McAllister Field
Airport (YKM) in Yakima, WA.
