    Ditto on Rich's recommendation. When doing cross country work I plan for 300 mile legs (though I've done 340). Weight won't have much effect on your fuel burn/range.

    Ditto, ditto, ditto re equip[range and go ELSA. There are many benefits of ELSA like you can legally fly at night as private pilot with the light package where technically SLSA you cant. ( makes no sense but true) There is no empty weight restriction as noted below and you can do your own work on the plane after taking the 16 hour LSA repairman course, you can also add any equipment you want and still be legal etc etc. etc etc. Call Jim Stewart at Falcon Insurance (830) 257-1000 as they were great re covergae and understand the ELSA election and I had no changes to rate but only had changes after adding amphibs.

    This is all great info- thanks a bunch. Now it's time to pencil it out. What dealer should I go through or do I just talk directly to CC?

    Thanks,
    GM

    Thumbs up Re: Recommendations for Carbon Cub

    I am not sure where you are so I can not tell you specifically who to talk with about buying one. I can tell you that the airplane is simply AWESOME and that all the folks at Cubcrafters have been great! I looked at a bunch of planes prior to selecting the Carbon Cub and can tell you that nothing can match the performance of the Carbon Cub, especially at higher altitudes.

    Regards,


    ps: Real Men fly tailwheel aircraft!!!!

    I can also recommend Falcon Insurance!! They know the plane and provided me with the most coverage at the best price!

    My Carbon Cub was delivered last Sunday and so far I am pleased.
    Re insurance--- I found Falcon Agency to be useless. I don't think they understand ELSA at all.
    I ended up with Avemco because of the favorable terms in their policy.
