Carbon Cub SS
Light Sport Aircraft
No other aircraft explores the limits of the Light Sport category more than the Carbon Cub SS.
It can land (and take off) in patches that you thought were accessible only to helicopters and hikers. And it does it with the grace, confidence and control that are Cub hallmarks.
If you thought that Light Sport was just for budget-minded beginners or for veteran pilots stymied by FAA Medical Certificate Requirements, you simply must fly a Carbon Cub SS.
"Refined, yet brutish."
AOPA review of the Carbon Cub SS
The Carbon Cub SS is a thoroughly modern, high performance airplane that has taken the fundamentally superior design of the Piper Super Cub and reinvented it using 21st Century materials (such as carbon fiber) and computer-aided design technology.
Superior engineering results in the Carbon Cub SS having 50 percent fewer parts and being 250 pounds lighter than a similarly equipped Super Cub.
Mounting a lightweight 180 horsepower engine to this airframe results in a horsepower to weight ratio of just 7.33 pounds (compared, for example, to a Cessna 172R's 15.33 pounds). That results in a sea level climb rate of 2,100 feet per minute (compared to 650 fpm for a 172) - a deck angle that inspires involuntary expletives. No other LSA takes off or lands in a shorter distance, with better low speed manners.
You simply must fly this airplane to believe it.
The airplane can be configured as either a one- or two-place S-LSA, depending on options and the resulting empty weight.
Both amphibious and straight floats are now available for the Carbon Cub SS.
