CubCrafters, builder of the Part 23 Top Cub, won their SLSA airworthiness today, becoming SLSA #37 to make their Statement of Compliance under ASTM consensus standards. The Washington state company brings the third J-3 Cub-like product to the market following Texas-based Legend Cub and the Zlin Savage from Italy. CubCrafters’ version follows their conventionally certified Top Cub and the company prides itself on building the Sport Cub CC11-100 on the same assembly line, which some buyers will value. AirFleet Capital, EAA’s official aircraft financing partner, is willing to finance a Sport Cub over a 20-year period (longer than other brands) because it is built on a Part 23 production line. Sport Cub is powered by the 100-hp O-200 Continental engine (as is the Legend Cub, though that company is also working with the Jabiru 3300) which allows the CubCrafters’ model to cruise at 105 mph (91 knots). If you’re attending AirVenture Oshkosh, you can check out the Sport Cub in person.
