BushCub SP/XP are completely new aircraft manufactured using
state-of-the-art technology in a modern manufacturing plant.
Skilled technicians hand-build each BushCub to exacting industry
standards, so that your flying experience is not impeded with

off with a new, 4130 Chromoly Supercub-based fuselage, assembled in our
own accurately rigid tooling. It's a wider (30")
and stronger fuse than the original J3 Cub, and allows us to increase
the gross weights for our BushCub SP model to 1320 lbs., the Light Sport
Aircraft/Sport Pilot maximum without floats. All Chromoly
parts are powder coated for maximum protection from corrosion. We assemble the
fuse with aircraft-grade hardware and materials, and check, test and
re-check all systems. Longerons are oiled and sealed to resist
corrosion. Extensive use of composites in some non-structural
areas keeps weight down.
