CubCrafters has opened a new dedicated Customer Completion Center in order to accommodate growing demand for the company’s line of Light Sport, Experimental, and FAA Certified backcountry aircraft.
With plans to manufacture over 100 new airframes in 2019 alone, the company has continued to deliver on its commitment to ramp-up production. CubCrafters’ growth has been on a continuous upward trend since the introduction of the original Light Sport Carbon Cub in 2009, which was further fueled by the introduction of the FAA certified XCub in 2016. More recently, the company’s Factory eXperimental (FX) builder assistance program has surged in popularity. This is the innovative program that allows customers to complete their own Experimental Amateur Built aircraft at the CubCrafters factory, including the best-selling 3rd generation of the Carbon Cub, the high performance FX-3.
The new facility provides the additional space and personnel needed to expand final assembly and pre-delivery operations across all product lines. “Our new Customer Completion Center adds over 11,000 sq. ft. of operational space, but the real focus here is not just manufacturing more airplanes, this new building is dedicated to producing better airplanes” explains Patrick Horgan, CubCrafters’ president. ”We’re making an investment to make sure the airplanes that we deliver to our customers meet the highest possible safety, quality, and fit & finish standards.”
Located on the south ramp at McAllister Field (KYKM) in Yakima, WA, the new facility is already up and running. With enough hangar floor space to accommodate 8-10 aircraft, multiple offices for technical and customer support staff, and customer friendly spaces for the CubCrafters FX builder assist program, the new facility and its talented staff will ensure CubCrafters continues meet demand as the company grows in its mission to revolutionize personal adventure aviation.
