Cub Crafters Sells 20 XCubs, Announces Factory Training
The just-introduced CubCrafter's XCub has enjoyed strong initial sales success, with the first 20 aircraft already sold, the company said this week at AirVenture 2016. It also announced a new factory training program for buyers that will allow them to get the most of their new airplanes, especially if they're coming from nosegear aircraft.
"CubCrafters has looked for a long, long time for a training partner, someone to refer our customers to where they can get quality training in our particular aircraft," said John Whitish, CubCrafter's marketing director. "The airplanes we sell are tailwheel aircraft and many of the customers who come to us are already flying a Bonanza or a Baron or whatever, and they need to get comfortable in a tailwheel airplane, preferably our tailwheel airplane," he added.
The program will be provided by TacAero. Whitish said it was "fantastic for us" that TacAero has agreed to provide transition training for all of the CubCrafters' line. In this exclusive AirVenture podcast, TacAero's Jeremy Young explains the five-day certified program the company developed specifically for CubCrafters.
