Company’s Flagship Now Available in New Markets
Yakima, Washington – August 30, 2018: CubCrafters announced that its top-of-the-line aircraft, the
XCub, has secured type certification from Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA). The approval allows
the company to begin deliveries of both land and seaplane versions of the aircraft to Canadian buyers
immediately. A Type Certificate was also issued for the XCub by the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB),
and the first XCub delivery has already landed there.


CubCrafters obtained FAA Type Certification for the XCub in June of 2016. Certification from the
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) followed in April of this year, thereby clearing the way for XCub
to enter into service on the European register. "XCub is finding an ever-larger audience in international
markets,” said Brad Damm, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CubCrafters. “The growing list of
approvals for the XCub from international aviation authorities is an important part of our plan to expand
the market reach of the CubCrafters product line. With delivery commitments for new XCubs now on
five of seven continents, there is world-wide interest in the utility, safety, and best-in-class STOL
performance that our aircraft offer.”


“These approvals of the XCub Type Certificate are proof of exceptional effort and cooperation between
TCCA, JCAB, FAA, and CubCrafters,” said Pat Horgan, President of CubCrafters. “The commitment from
all stakeholders makes this a fine example of how the bilateral validation agreement between the U.S
and international agencies should work. I’m extremely grateful to the FAA, TCCA, JCAB, and to my own
team here at CubCrafters.”
