Cubcrafters Sport Cub - This Light Sport Aircraft Has A Lot To Offer...
Here's Why It Is So Good.
When it comes to flying 2 seater taildragger airplanes, a lot of pilots love the thought of having a version of the classic Piper Super Cub. But the problem is, not everyone wants an old airplane that has been restored or needs to be. And that is the great thing about the Cubcrafters Sport Cub! It's a very close version of the Piper classic, except you get to take advantage of the advancement in engineering and technology.
IMPORTANT: Cubcrafters has a few different options for airplanes that are similar to the classic Piper, but in this article were going to focus on the Sport Cub S2. It's a great little airplane in that you can fly it if you have your LSA rating and you can fly it if you are a fully licensed pilot.
Here's 2 Things That Are Really Great About The
Cubcrafters Sport Cub S2...
#1 - It Seems To Really Hold It's Value...
One of the hardest things I found in regards to the Sport Cub was finding a lot of used ones on the market. At the time of this writing, I was only able to find 3 used Sport Cubs that were for sale. Not only that, they were not cheap.
And that is the great thing about this airplane. Judging by the low volume on the used market, pilots who buy Sport Cub's seem to keep them for a long time. And that's a great thing if you own one. It means that a lack of used inventory is going to likely keep some upward pressure on the market.
So if you ever decide to go sell your Sport Cub (not sure why you would) you should get a good buck for it assuming the market holds and your plane is in good condition.
#2 - It Has Great Back Country Features...
Even if you don't plan on taking the Sport Cub into the bush on every flight, it still has a lot of great features that you might really like.
One of them is the fact that it has a 415 ft takeoff distance (ground roll).(1) That is a very short distance and allows you to really get into some tight areas if you are into flying into places that need this kind of short takeoff distance.
The other thing is the landing ground roll distance... It only needs 245 feet! (2) Now, that is assuming normal conditions, but 245 feet is amazing. And that is the great thing about this airplane - it can get into and out of some pretty tight areas.
I'm sure you won't be going into these tight areas all the time, but it is nice to know that when you need to, you can.
As well, one of the other features that are really great about the Sport Cub is the fact that it has space for up to 120 pounds of cargo! (3) That is pretty good for a little 2 seater like this... Your going to be able to haul some pretty big fish home if you go into the back country and do some fishing!
