CubCrafters has received type certification for the XCub from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
Type certification acknowledges compliance with all EASA airworthiness and environmental requirements, clearing the way for the XCub to enter into service on the European register.
“EASA certification is an important step in the continuing expansion of our international markets,” said Randy Lervold, president of CubCrafters. “We’ve received considerable interest from European customers after the XCub’s US launch in 2016 and we’re pleased to now offer it for sale in Europe.”
The XCub is a two-seat (tandem) single-engine, piston, high-wing aircraft intended for off-airport operations wiht short takeoff and landing (STOL) performance. FLYER reviewed the XCub in the August 2016 issue.
CubCrafters is planning to send demo XCub aircraft to Europe and interested parties are encouraged to register their interest with CubCrafters Europe.
