Carbon Cub EX - Safety & Performance
Simply the best Cub kit available.
Safety is a top priority in the design and construction of the Carbon Cub EX. The aircraft is inherently safer due to its extraordinarily slow stall speed. To the fundamentally sound wing shape we've added a line of vortex generators, which significantly increase low speed maneuverability, further enhancing safety.
The airframe, while lightweight, is super-strong, and forms a protective cage around the occupants. It has been tested to 1865lbs X 4G's + 50%. And while a lot of experimental aircraft have been tested via computer simulations alone, CubCrafters instead tests using lead weights and hydraulic pressure. CubCrafters also tests using the same test scenario used in FAA certified testing.
In the cabin, the reinforced harness attach points are actually the strongest parts of the airframe. Even the pilot's carbon fiber seat was designed for protection as well as comfort. The latest, 2nd generation Amsafe airbag harnesses are available as an option.
The Carbon Cub EX is a POWERFUL airplane. It has no equal in takeoff and landing performance, takeoff in two or three lengths of the airplane when you are light, and four of five at gross weight! Speaking of performance, this plane will climb at over 2,100 feet per minute at sea level and still be climbing at over 1,100 feet per minute at 10,000 feet. Level off at 7,500 feet in less than 5 minutes after takeoff! Cruise at 126mph even with 29" tundra tires. The fun factor is off the chart. Whether flying around the patch, camping, or more serious flying, the Carbon Cub EX will always deliver!
