The Cubby is 75% of the original J-3 Piper cub. With modern materials and technology the performance has been vastly improved. The purchase price is low and operational costs are kept to a minimum due to the use of automotive fuel as apposed to AVGAS. The Cubby can be registered as a three axis micro-light or a non type certified light aircraft. The Cubby is available in tri-gear or tail dragger. The price is dependable on the choice of engine. The option to have the Cubby interchangeable between tri-gear and tail dragger is also available on request as an option.

With the cooperation and valuable input from the CAA, the factory is now up to CAA standards. The non type certified process of +- a year and capital input is now just about done. All upgrade and changes requested by CAA has been done and communicated to all Cubby owners. All correspondence of changes and upgrades are posted to Cubby owners with a newsletter.

Applications: There are already 26 flying in SA and 3 on order. The cubby is available in kit form, fast built and basic kit.
