Backcountry Super Cubs added to FAA Eligible List

The FAA national kit evaluation team was in Douglas, Wyoming, during the first week of December 2010 to evaluate four different aircraft kits produced by Backcountry Super Cubs, LLC. The company had each of the kits it currently offers, the Super Cub Replica, Super Cruiser, Mackey SQ2 and the Mackey SQ4 evaluated. The Aviation Safety Inspectors determined that all four kits meet the major portion requirement of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations Part 21, Certification Procedures for Products, Articles and Parts, § 21.191(g). The kits were officially added to the FAA’s listing of Amateur-Built aircraft that comply with the 51% rule on December 30.

The company has almost 200 of its kits flying, and is happy to announce that the process of obtaining a Certificate of Airworthiness may now be even easier for the amateur builder.
