The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has chosen the CC19 XCub to modernise its fleet. The design is based on the Piper Cub but has been adapted by its manufacturers, CubCrafters, for operations as a rugged utility aircraft for backcountry missions.

CubCrafters already supplies its models to the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Department of the Interior, and the US Air Force. Deliveries for the USDA order should start in summer 2023, the portal AVweb reported.
