CubCrafters operates in a modern 40,000 square foot facility on the edge of McAllister Field Airport in Yakima, Washington. It's an idyllic spot for flying and testing our planes: Big skies, punctuated on the Western horizon by the always snow-capped peaks of the Cascade mountain range. 290 days of sunshine each year. The nearby countryside dotted with wineries, orchards and rangeland.
Inside our buildings, nearly one hundred dedicated and highly skilled people come together to build some of the most innovative and exciting aircraft available. The process is a unique combination of time-tested handcrafting, complimented with the latest in computer-aided design and fabrication.
In many ways, this is every enthusiast's dream workshop. Spotless. Organized. Ideally configured to optimize the process of building an airplane to the highest levels of precision. Proven principles of lean manufacturing ensure that there is no outdated inventory and that all parts and procedures are under constant scrutiny for possible improvement.
CubCrafters holds an FAA Production Certificate to manufacture duplicate products of approved designs, such as the Top Cub. It is also the only manufacturer in America building Light Sport Aircraft in an FAA Certified facility.
It's worth noting that, unlike many manufacturing facilities, the CubCrafters factory houses all departments involved with the design, support and sales of our airplanes. This close proximity results not only in operational efficiencies, but also in a tangible sense of teamwork and shared purpose that is at the very core of our business. It is an indispensible part of what makes a CubCrafters airplane so special.
