Sport Cub certified on Baumann 1500 straight floats

CubCrafters announces the certification of Baumann 1500 Straight Floats for the SPORT CUB. The fully-equipped test plane had an empty weight of 983 lbs. At gross weight, this puddle jumper could takeoff from the water in less than 8 seconds! Industry-renowned test pilot Len Fox conducted the spin testing this past week. Fox commented, "One of the things you notice in Light Sport Aircraft is that they tend to be kitey... this airplane is light, but it is definitely not kitey." A SPORT CUB on Baumann 1500 Straight Floats starts at $141,500.

Chairman Jim Richmond commented, "I was not prepared for the performance we have seen with this airplane. It is a Super Cub in Sport Cub guise."

Richmond concluded, "I chased the Sport Cub that Len was spinning with a Husky on amphibs we have here for sale. We were spinning from 10,000 feet, and the Sport Cub was up there waiting for us for several minutes before we could get that high. I was not prepared for that kind of performance. It beat me into the air by a factor of two to three, and climbed faster too! Light weight does wonderful things for airplanes. Wow!"
