CubCrafters was founded in 1980 by current owner and President, Jim Richmond, and is located at McAllister Field Airport (YKM) in Yakima, Washington. CubCrafters’ roots are in the 60-year history of classic taildragger aviation, but its products and services are leading edge. CubCrafters aircraft are manufactured entirely at their facilities in Yakima.


CubCrafters offers three new, ready-to-fly aircraft. The second generation SPORT CUB S2 is the successor to the original SPORT CUB, the long awaited redesign of the classic airplane that inspired the Light Sport category. The CARBON CUB SS, a stronger and more powerful version of the S2 with 180 horsepower, is the most powerful LSA aircraft in production. The TOP CUB, with a useful load of over 1000 lbs., is the most capable two-place personal and utility aircraft in its class. CubCrafters also offers a kit version of their Carbon Cub SS, the Carbon Cub EX.
