February will see the delivery of the 200th CC11 series Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) from Yakima, Washington-based light aircraft designer and manufacturer CubCrafters.
CubCrafters offers two models of LSA, the 100 horsepower Sport Cub S2 and the 180 horsepower Carbon Cub SS. The Carbon Cub SS has won virtually every Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) competition in which it has been entered, company officials said.
“It is most gratifying to see the market respond to our combination of quality and performance. As the market leader we take our responsibility seriously – we are spending as much time developing our fleet support infrastructure as we are working on product development. Both are high priorities here at CubCrafters,” commented CubCrafters General Manager Randy Lervold.
Bucking industry trends, CubCrafters continues on a path of increased sales and manufacturing capability. In December the company added 15,000 square feet of manufacturing space and a dedicated Research and Development shop. The expansion also creates job opportunities. Openings in several departments have been posted and can be reviewed at the CAREERS link on the company website, CubCrafters.com
