CubCrafters, the leading designer and manufacturer of light-sport, experimental and Part 23 certified backcountry aircraft, has announced its acquisition of Summit Aircraft Skis, including the company’s design and manufacturing assets, unique patents and related intellectual property, from the Sandpoint, Idaho-based Summit Aircraft Corporation. Favored by Carbon Cub owners, Summit Aircraft Skis are also preferred by the owners of many other types of non-CubCrafters manufactured backcountry capable aircraft. The unique ski design enables pilots to quickly and easily configure their aircraft to fly to many remote and primitive areas otherwise inaccessible in winter when runways are not maintained. “We are very excited and pleased to welcome Summit’s customers and products into our family here in Yakima,” said Patrick Horgan, CubCrafters president and CEO. “It has been a joy for our team to work together with Mike Custard, Summit’s founder, to coordinate a smooth ski manufacturing transition. Adding Summit Skis to the CubCrafters product lineup allows us to better meet our customers’ needs and adds a new profit center. We see a great potential for growth with the Summit brand that we want to be a part of going forward.”
