CubCrafters-Built Aircraft Successfully Lands on Helipad on Iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai





Pilot lands Fixed Wing Carbon Cub airplane on a 78-foot diameter helipad located on top of the 56 story building.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (3/14/22) — CubCrafters, in collaboration with Red Bull and
extreme sports promotor XDubai, has achieved an unprecedented milestone in aviation by
successfully landing a fixed wing Carbon Cub aircraft on the heliport of one of the world's most
iconic buildings, the Burj Al Arab hotel, in Dubai, UAE.

The Bulls Eye landing event featured Red Bull Air Race pilot and Carbon Cub owner Luke
Czepiela landing a specially modified version of CubCrafters bestselling aircraft on a 27-meter
wide helipad suspended 212 meters above sea level atop the 56-story hotel.


All big moments start with little ideas powered by imagination and the desire to create
something special,” stated Patrick Horgan, CubCrafters’ President & CEO. “Red Bull has done
many projects over the years that have inspired aviators worldwide, so we were honored to
join them on this project to demonstrate the incredible capabilities of the kinds of aircraft our
company designs and manufactures."

As Michał Graczyk, Aviation Project Manager for the event explained, “To ensure success, we
wanted the airplane best suited to the challenge, and CubCrafters was the obvious choice. They have a long history of innovation and industry leadership, relentless research and development, and an impeccable reputation for the quality of their aircraft. These attributes made us very confident in choosing them as our partner for this event.”

“Throughout the years, CubCrafters’ brand has grown to be synonymous with an adventure
lifestyle, and giving pilots the ability to land our airplanes in the most challenging environments is core to our mission,” said Brad Damm, CubCrafters’ Vice President. “This project, two years in the planning and execution, really pushes the limits of what a best-of-class STOL aircraft, and an extremely capable and dedicated pilot, can achieve.”

Renowned bush pilot, aviation engineer, and YouTube personality, Mike Patey, also joined the
CubCrafters technical team for the project. Mike, a Carbon Cub owner himself, customized
some of the aircraft's features to help ensure a successful outcome. "It was a pretty simple
formula. We cut weight, changed the C.G. to increase the effectiveness of the brakes, and
added extra horsepower,” said Mike. "I'm really proud of how the airplane performed. The
Carbon Cub was a great choice to start with, and we made it even better for this event."

“Working with CubCrafters and Mike Patey to prepare the airplane for this event has been a
true pleasure,” declared pilot Luke Czepiela. “During the training and preparation, I developed
full confidence in the aircraft and its unique capabilities that enabled me to successfully
accomplish this mission.”

Warming Makes Droughts, Extreme Wet Events More Frequent, Intense

 Scientists have predicted that droughts and floods will become more frequent and severe as our planet warms and climate changes, but detecting this on regional and continental scales has proven difficult. Now a new NASA-led study confirms that major droughts and pluvials – periods of excessive precipitation and water storage on land – have indeed been occurring more often.
