American Cub replica building company CubCrafters announced that a nosewheel is now an option for its flagship Part 23 certified aircraft, the CC-19 XCub

Launching the latest variant of its XCub was not a decision that the company took casually, and Patrick Horgan, president of CubCrafters, said: “We went into this process not entirely sure if the market wanted to accept a nosewheel personal adventure Cub.

“There is no question now – our customers have made it very clear that they want us to build this airplane.

“The XCub is easily convertible between nosewheel and tailwheel, so you really get two airplanes in one.

“A fast, modern, easy-to-fly, tricycle gear aircraft and a traditional big-tire tailwheel Cub together.”
