CubCrafters announced today that its flagship aircraft, the XCub, has been awarded type certification from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau. The certification acknowledges compliance with all JCAB airworthiness and environmental requirements, thereby clearing the way for XCub to enter into service on the Japan register.
XCub is a two-seat (tandem) single-engine, piston, high-wing aircraft intended for off-airport operations. XCub is lighter, faster and stronger than any aircraft in its category. Like all CubCrafters aircraft, XCub delivers superb short takeoff and landing (STOL) performance. XCub also provides a larger payload and greater range. Combined, these attributes fulfill a much wider mission profile compared to any other aircraft in this class.
