CubCrafters selects Hartzell Engine Technologies lightweight X-Drive starter

The lighter weight and lower current draw make Hartzell’s newest starter the perfect match for CubCrafter’s high-performance LSA.

CubCrafters is located in Yakima, Washington and was founded in 1980 by current owner Jim Richmond. In 2007, CubCrafters was issued a FAA Production Certificate and is currently the only aircraft manufacturer in the nation to produce both standard category and light sport category aircraft under an FAA-approved quality assurance program. CubCrafters’ roots are in the 60-year history of classic “taildragger” aviation, but its products and services are clearly at the leading edge of technology. CubCrafters offers three all new, ready-to-fly aircraft: The Sport Cub S2, the Carbon Cub SS and the Top Cub. The company also offers the Carbon Cub EX kit aircraft. For more information, visit:
