After three years in production and a fleet of more than 100 aircraft, the CubCrafters Carbon Cub SS Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA) is evolving for 2013.
Changes include a new cowling design, an improved cabin heat system, a new starter, and a new system voltage monitor, company officials said. New options are also being introduced, including a ground adjustable propeller from Whirl Wind, a GPS-equipped Emergency Locator Transmitter, and new amphibious floats from Aerocet, which are coming soon.

For the past 31 years, the name CubCrafters has been synonymous with Super Cubs. But with its entry a few years ago into the world of Light-Sport Aircraft, its name now is tied to one of the most successful LSAs on the market.
When the term “light” is applied to aircraft, it can give the impression that the machine is somehow delicate. This is SO not the case when it comes to CubCrafters Carbon Cub LSA.
CubCrafters describes the Carbon Cub SS as an aircraft designed “for the pilot who REALLY wants to push the limits of Light Sport.”
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 recently unveiled the Super Sport Cub, the company’s most powerful aircraft.
CubCrafters recently shipped the first three Carbon Cub wing kits and the first Carbon Cub fuselage kit.
CubCrafters is producing the kits at a rate of two per month, according to company officials.
“The first builder has the wings complete and is working on the fuselage kit,” said Mitch Travis, kit program manager.
