Yakima, Washington – April 5, 2016: Light aircraft manufacturer, CubCrafters, has announced an easy entry into their popular kit program with the Carbon Cub EX-2 Discovery Kit. The kit introduces builders to the CubCrafters system, and allows them to envision the process of covering a tube & fabric aircraft. Builders will appreciate the quality of the parts and materials included, and the thorough documentation with clear step-by-step instructions. Upon completion, Discovery Kit builders will have a finished rudder assembly and a running start on their Carbon Cub EX-2 sport utility aircraft.

The simple kit includes a rudder for the company’s famous Carbon Cub EX-2 aircraft kit, plus a Poly Fiber fabric envelope, tape, rivets, adhesive, sealer, and primer… everything a builder needs to complete the rudder assembly except paint. CubCrafters includes a printed manual, a USB Flash drive with manual and instruction video, as well as an aluminum CubCrafters keychain for use when the airplane kit is completed.
