Technology that responds to global demand

CubCrafters recently announced the development of the Carbon Cub UL. A variant of the best-selling Carbon Cub, it features the new turbocharged, multi-fuel Rotax 916 iS engine which, in combination with other CubCrafters engineering enhancements makes the plane, lighter, faster and even more maneuverable. It’s designed for international markets that represent 50% of global demand for adventure airplanes. Since only 10% of CubCrafters’ sales are international, it opens up a vast potential market.

Robots lend a hand

The strong demand for CubCrafters products had led to a more than two-year backlog on new airplane orders. We wanted reduce that backlog and our aircraft into the hands of our customers as soon as we could without compromising our high quality standards, so we made a significant investment in robotic manufacturing that both increases the speed of production and enhances the quality as well.

FORBES- CubCrafters’ Electric-Fans Could Make Planes Land & Takeoff On a Dime

CubCrafters is already known for taking the classic Piper Super Cub design to short takeoff and landing extremes. A new aerodynamic system the company is developing could take the Cub and other aircraft further.

Cubcrafters calls its new system, Electric Lift Augmenting Slats (ELAS). ELAS is a new twist on an old idea, the recognition that speeding the flow of air over the top of an aerodynamic device like a wing or horizontal tail can increase lift.

It has most commonly been seen with “blown flaps” whose origins stretch back to the 1930s. Air blown through nozzles across wing trailing-edge flaps has been used to speed and shape the airflow over the rear edge of the wing, increasing lift and allowing fixed wing airplanes to fly slower, and takeoff and land in shorter distances.

PRESS RELEASE – CubCrafters’ Stock Price Increases

Recent Milestone Advancements Drive Investors’ Demand, Triggering A 9% Rise in Stock Price

CubCrafters, a leading designer and manufacturer of Light-Sport and Part 23 Certified aircraft, announced today that the price of shares in their Regulation A+ public offering was raised to $5.45 due to a number of positive developments.

In November of 2022, for the first time in its history, CubCrafters began accepting investments at $5 per share with a minimum investment of $400 per investor. Since that time, investors have enthusiastically responded and subscribed to the stock offering.

CubCrafters is prototyping revolutionary, patented technology

CubCrafters engineers have designed and patented a revolutionary new device: Electronic Lift Augmenting Slats (ELAS.) When attached to existing aircraft -- or integrated into original manufacturing -- the ELAS technology utilizes small electric ducted fans in combination with leading-edge lifting slats to change the airflow over the wing. This can result in as much as a 50% reduction of takeoff and landing distances. The technology was partially funded by two grants from NASA in recognition of the advantages ELAS technology could bring to civilian, scientific and military aircraft.

Where can I find FYE results and/or proforma’s and forecasts?

Justin J. on August 25
Hello CoreyC, The SEC imposes tight restrictions on what and how public reporting companies are allowed to state their financial results, especially on forecasts, in order to protect investors. As a result, we recommend that you check out the Form 1-K Annual Report filed here: To the extent that regulations allow, the proforma and forecasts can be found in the offering circular. Find it here: And the latest amendment is here:

COMMENT RECEIVED: "I love the plane. My only concern is the Democrats and their war on fossil fuels. And their fanatic push for green energy. They will no doubt be forcing aircraft manufacturers to go electric and we all know that is not practical. I think that will hurt all companies. -Michael S." RESPONSE: Hello Michael, We understand your concerns, and it is part of our mission to continue innovating while monitoring industry developments. We agree that current battery technology is not yet adequate as a widespread replacement for primary powerplants in personal and commercial transport aircraft, and it will not be for many years, despite much hype and investment in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) research in the last decade. CubCrafters works directly with the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), and with other important groups and leaders, in support of sensible policies to maintain fuel supplies while also addressing the future of aviation fuels. In parallel, we are continuing technological innovation such as our recently announced Carbon Cub UL project utilizing the Rotax 916iS with flex-fuel capability. Now in the second phase of research grant funding from NASA, we also recently announced our patented R&D development of Electric Lift Augmenting Slats (ELAS), as a potentially powerful short take-off and landing (STOL) innovation that can be successful with current battery technology. Just as we weathered the pandemic-triggered supply-chain challenges, we are actively looking forward to a continuing positive future for General Aviation. And, we appreciate you supporting and helping us, so that we have the resources to stay engaged on all important new happenings.

QUESTION RECEIVED: "...Before I invest in your company, I want to know what your relationship with China is. It is rumored that you sold the Super Cub, PA-18 type certificate to the Chinese. Is that true? Also you use Titan engines which are owned by TCM and they are owned by the Chinese. What exactly is your business relationship with the Chinese? Please answer. Glen" ANSWER: CubCrafters has no direct interests with China at this time, nor are there any plans to do so. It is known, and recorded in the SEC filing, that CubCrafters sold its older intellectual property for the CC18 Top Cub Type Certificate to a Chinese entity in 2015. CubCrafters certified a new next-generation Cub variant in 2016, the CC19 XCub, which it produces today. While the company does still retain a license agreement that authorizes it to build CC18 aircraft for the US market, none have been produced in recent years. CubCrafters developed the CC340 engine with ECI (later became Titan) for its Light Sport and first-generation Experimental Carbon Cubs. Later, Continental Motor Group purchased Titan and still produces the CC340 for CubCrafters, using CubCrafters proprietary cold air induction sump. This is no longer the most popular engine in the CubCrafters line. More recently, CubCrafters worked with Lycoming for the engines currently used in the second and third generation Carbon Cubs, the CC363i, which is available in fixed pitch and constant speed propeller versions. The CC19 XCub, the company's flagship certified aircraft that is currently in production, is powered by either a Lycoming O-360 180 HP or our newer Lycoming CC393i 215 HP engine. In March of this year, CubCrafters announced the development of a Rotax 916iS powered version of its Carbon Cub LSA. CubCrafters Inc. is proudly American owned and operated, and its leadership has indicated its intentions to stay that way.

#Dgcnr, thank you for your question. While we are not currently listed on any stock exchanges, it is our intention, after raising capital through the current offerings, to consider listing our stock on one of the exchanges available to us. If and when that happens, we have recently reserved the ticker symbol CUBC with Nasdaq.

Xavier on August 25
Hi there! Is it possible to get the company numbers? Otherwise, this is sort of a blind investment… I like CubCrafters a lot, but without numbers I cannot tell whether $5 a share is a bargain or all the contrary. Thanks !

Patrick Horgan on August 31
Hi Xavier, You can download some slides included on the offering page by clicking "Download Presentation," which shares some annual sales numbers. We are currently in a reservation phase, which is non-binding and stock purchase investments cannot yet be made. The reservation allows one to reserve shares at the issue price. We will publish our Offering Circular when qualified by the SEC, which includes valuation details. We cannot guarantee the SEC approval, nor timing. Thanks for your support for our company.

Steve on August 12
It's not clear from the offering how an investor would ever make any money. I don’t think CubCrafters is looking to be acquired or to do an IPO, which are the normal ways you would expect to make money on a pre-IPO investment. So how will we make money? Will the stock be transferrable?
