Carbon Cub SS - Safety & Performance
Slow Stall Speed - Inherently Safer!
Safety is a top priority in the design and construction of the Carbon Cub SS. 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.
The airframe, while lightweight, is super-strong, and forms a protective cage around the occupants. It has been tested to greatly exceed the requirements for Light Sport Aircraft. And while LSA rules allow load testing via computer simulations alone, CubCrafters instead tests using lead weights and hydraulic pressure (up to 8.5Gs in ultimate airframe tests).
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 on option.
The Carbon Cub SS is a POWERFUL airplane. It has no equal in takeoff and landing performance. Take off 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 five minutes after takeoff! Cruise at or near the speed limit for LSA aircraft, even with 29" tundra tires. This power and performance is matched only by the airplane's nimble handling and slow speed manners. The fun factor is off the chart. Whether flying around the patch, camping or more serious flying, the Carbon Cub SS will always deliver!
