To kick things off, here are our forums for 2012:

1.) Owner-Produced Parts: The Rule & How We Can Help

Thursday, March 29th, 1:00 pm in Room #7

We get a lot of questions regarding the owner-produced parts rule.  What does it mean?  What does it cover?  When can I use it, and when can’t I?  What if I don’t have the experience or equipment to produce a part no longer manufactured?  All of these questions and more will be addressed in our forum.  While we will focus on Cub parts, the scope of the owner-produced parts is valuable information to owners of any vintage aircraft.

2.) 21st-Century Super Cub: The Super 18 Kit Family

Friday, March 30th, 11:oo am in Room #8

Building an airplane is a great way to fulfill all your airplane wishes, from instrument layout to engine choice and paint.  Kit aircraft provide an organized way to build your dream airplane to help ensure your success.  How do you choose the right kit for you?  What are things you should consider in choosing?  What are the differences between the Super 18 kits and other Cub-alike kits?  What if I can’t choose and want all 3 Super 18 models??  We can handle all those questions and hope we can help get you on the road to building your perfect airplane.

3.) Backcountry LSA: The Super 18 LT

Friday, March 30th, 1:00 pm in Room #11

Back by popular demand, this forum will further explore the Light Sport Aircraft-eligible Super 18 LT.  LSA-specific concerns will be addressed.  Other critical information, such as builder tasks and performance, will be key topics.  If you are considering the LSA route but are concerned you can’t have a “real” airplane designed to hold up to years of use and abuse, this forum is a must.  Let us show you the perfect way to enjoy LSA privileges without sacrificing utility!

      Hi Greg,

      Yes, you can! We offer factory-built, fully certified aircraft as well as 3 amateur-built kits with different gross weights and engine options. Our certified aircraft, the Super 18 S18-180, has a 180-hp Lycoming O-360 and a 2300-lb gross weight. It’s also available as an amateur-built kit. Our two other kits (not available factory-built) are the Super 18-160 (2050-lb gross weight) and the Super 18 LT (can be built to either 1600 lbs or set at 1320 to be LSA-eligible). We’ll be sending you an email soon! Thanks for getting in touch 🙂
