We are a group of like-minded individuals that will settle for nothing less than top-notch quality, design, and service.  We value our relationship with the aviation family and seek to support the community.  Because we view our customers are part of our family, we promise you the following things:

Top quality and service

Brutally honest statistics—we don’t believe in fluff

Enduring support for our products

Dakota Cub Aircraft has been a supplier of FAA/PMA’d parts since 1993 and continues to be a leading provider of high-quality direct-replacement parts for fabric-winged Piper aircraft.  Originally specializing in wing rib manufacturing, Dakota Cub has expanded to support fabric-wing Pipers through full wing assemblies, numerous wing components, as well as cowls, firewalls, and other parts. 

Dakota Cub strives to provide high-performance direct-replacement parts at fair prices to aircraft owners and operators.  We hold multiple Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for improved parts such as our high-pressure brake master cylinders, high-flow/high-capacity gascolators, upgraded fuel selector valve (with left/right/both/off settings), high-visibility fuel sight gauges that can be read from front and rear seats, and our extended and slotted wings.

Our involvement with the backcountry aircraft community led to the incorporation of our leading edge slot wing on the certified Super 18-180, manufactured by Super 18 LLC.  Having gained significant engineering knowledge during our cooperation with Super 18 LLC, we entered the experimental-amateur built aircraft kit business with three different models. 

As a full-service aviation company, we are also an FAA-authorized repair station capable of repairs, rebuilds, and restorations.
