Fleming Aviation welcomes Dana Holladay to CubCrafters sales. CubCrafters aircraft are based on the Piper SuperCubs and are best suited for back-country sightseeing and adventure, available as both certified aircraft or as the newer class of Light Sport Aircraft (LSA).
Dana is a true grassroots aviator. He was born and raised in Virginia and is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute. In 1988 he moved to the Chicago area, where he lived for 22 years before returning to the East Coast, where he resides with his wife, Meredith, who is also a pilot and flight instructor. He holds a commercial pilot certificate for airplane-single and multi-engine land and single engine sea.
Dana worked as a full-time flight instructor for many years, which gave him the opportunity to fly many different makes and models of aircraft. His passion is teaching and flying low and slow. He has flown everything from ultralights to the venerable Beech 18, has ferried small planes from coast to coast several times, and has accumulated over 6500 flight hours, including over 1000 in tailwheel aircraft. His fondest memory is earning his tailwheel endorsement in a Piper Cub in 1997. As he describes it, it was an event that changed his life. According to Dana, flying a Cub epitomizes the golden age of aviation and flying just above the treetops. This summer he and Meredith plan to take two months off and fly their restored Piper Cub to all 48 contiguous United States and are writing a book about the experience. It doesn't get more grassroots than that!
Dana also loves to talk about airplanes and share flying experiences with anyone who will listen, which makes him a natural at aircraft sales. He has followed the evolution of the CubCrafters product line over the years including the Carbon Cub with Fleming Aviation. As is the case with most people who fly the Carbon Cub, Dana is blown away by it's performance and fun factor. As a result, he has joined the Fleming Aviation sales department. He firmly believes that the Carbon Cub's mix of new technology and classic design and handling can't be beat. His selling style is honest and dedicated with regard to assisting potential customers, but also laid back in that he prefers to let the airplane speak for itself. He is excellent at determining what his customers are looking for in an airplane to assist buyers in the direction of the best aircraft to accomplish their desired mission.
"If that mission requires adrenaline-pumping fun with options for back-country and flying low," he says, "there simply is no greater bang for the buck than the Carbon Cub."
CubCrafters has been rebuilding and modifying Piper SuperCubs for over 30 years. With the advent of the Light Sport Aircraft type in 2005, CubCrafters built new factory facilities and began producing new aircraft inspired by the SuperCub.
