It's like hiking, but with an airplane...
A young mans dream to build an airplane and fly it the length of the Americas.
Build vs Buy
The decision to build vs buy was tough. For the same money you can buy a decent working Cessna, however, you don’t have the same level of control and versatility as what you get with the fabulous Carbon Cub EX-2.
The airplane is complete after 2,500 hours of build time!!! Click to see some of our progress photos…

The visionary and worker behind this project. Tobias has been working on getting to this point for the past 3 years. His focus is to complete the build of his airplane with any spare time he has minus the part when he got a girlfriend.
Tobias’s copilot and supporter of Tobias’s crazy aviation addiction. During the build Jackie became ‘chief mechanic’ and project administrator as she also handles CubTrekking’s social media. She has a background in backpacking and has hiked to Everest Base Camp, the John Muir Trail and the O-circuit in Patagonia and brings a camping and hiking flare into the flying adventures.
Where is this happening?
The Carbon Cub EX-2 build started in a two car garage and has since moved into an hangar.
