I am holding thumbs for you Jean. If anyone can make Cubby work its most definitely you. I am sure that all current and past Cubby owners, like me, will be behind you boots and all!!

Keep us posted, well done on your inspection.

Cubby can only grow from strength to strength, especially from the dismal hovel that it has been in for the past 2 years under the current ownership.

If it was not for dedicated and committed owners that love this incredible plane, it would have disappeared from the aviation scene.

I sure hope that you allow it to rise to the potential that the Cubby has, to one of the finest and best loved LSA aircraft in the country, and on-top of that, its a local product, just like the Sling, Ravin and some others.

I love home-grown!

The above was posted roughly 18 months ago.............here we try again.......... :roll: :roll:

:( This whole Cubby set-up has been a great frustration to me up till now............I am having another go at trying to get to some workable agreement for a take-over of this business. If it does come off this time, which I am lead to believe it will, then there will certainly be some action VERY BLOODY SOON :lol: :lol:
Guys and Gals, please hold thumbs for this one, Cubby has so much potential, but alas, the motivation from a certain area was/is lacking............not from my side :twisted:
Best regards to all.

:D I got word from one of the present owners ( after a meeting they had) that my offer/proposal has been accepted. Over a period of time I will acquire the majority shares in the Cubby company............the agreement still has to be drafted and signed by all.
This time it WILL happen. We have our manufacturing certificate, we have all our sub-contractors carefully chosen, and we have our supplier list sorted out.

Please guys and girls, give me your support [-o< [-o< , without clients a business is NOTHING. Although I am not a newbie to aircraft building, manufacturing is new to me, BUT, it is not a great deal different to building an aircraft ............only this time WE MANUFACTURE THE KIT :lol: :lol: :lol:

In future please email your orders to us at : factory@cubby.co.za or alternate email : aerokits99@gmail.com
Phone the factory on 028 572 1566 or Cell: 072 6716 240. Speak to me , or my sidekick Abrie Vermaak at the Factory.
We are also working on a new wesite !
