Grand Spree R an all metal low wing ultralight aircraft.
 
08:32
http://www.ultralightnews.com -- While at Airventure in I came across an ultralight on display in the Ultralight area across from the Red Barn. The plane was called the Grand Spree and was designed and build by Max Bennett. It took Max over a year to build the Grand Spree, in his living room. Max has built several aircraft in the past including a Lazair and Zenair CH 701. Both of these aircraft use metal in their construction, so since Max was familiar with this type of construction he decided to build The Grand Spree in metal. During the design process Max was more concerned with the look of the aircraft than its performance. Thus he designed the Grand Spree to be as showstopper! While Max knew how to work with metal he did not have the necessary skills to design and test I wing. To overcome this problem he decided to purchase a set of plans for the wing assembly of a Hummel UltraCruiser. The UltraCruiser uses and all metal low wing in a tractor configuration and the speed and weight of an UltraCruiser are very close to that of the Grand Spree. To get the look that he wanted required the molding of approximately 50 fiberglass parts. He also had to design and fabricate a motor mount for the 30 hp twin cylinder Kawasaki two-stroke engine and belt reduction system. The Grand Spree was built to be a legal part 103 ultralight aircraft, but to meet the weight restrictions a parachute had to be installed for the additional weight allowance. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Murphy Radical, Murphy Radical all metal experimental aircraft by Murphy Aircraft.
 
13:10
http://www.ultralightflyer.com – Murphy Radical, Murphy Radical all metal experimental aircraft by Murphy Aircraft. The Murphy Aircraft Radical The RADICAL is a very roomy two seat aircraft. Even the largest pilots will find they have plenty of head, leg and shoulder room. No need to be a contortionist to enter the RADICAL. The two large up swinging doors make it easy for even the less mobile to enter. The Murphy Aircraft Radical Performance You will not find another aircraft with the performance and usefulness of the Murphy Radical. Wheels, floats or skis, your adventure awaits. The Murphy Aircraft Radical Design Philosphy It has been designed and built to be a true rugged STOL bush aircraft incorporating the best ideas and design practices of all the Murphy aircraft. When Darryl Murphy and Dick Hiscocks (lead aeronautical design engineer of the dehaviland Beaver, Otter, Twin Otter, etc) started the design for the Murphy Rebel the utmost importance was placed on ruggedness and STOL performance. The Murphy Aircraft Radical Usefulness was also a high priority. Over the years this philosophy was continued in the designs of the Murphy Elite, Maverick and Super Rebel line of aircraft. The Radical design continues this philosophy. Although tandem seat aircraft based on the original Piper Cub are very good performing aircraft, they do have a number of drawbacks. Many have reasonable useful load capabilities but when flying two up the space available for load carrying is very limited. This is definitely not a problem with the RADICAL. The side by side seating leaves a cavernous space behind the seats available for load carrying. The space is so large two can sleep comfortably on the double floor. No longer will your flying partner have to sit in the trunk. With the side by side seating they will be able to sit up front where the action is with full access to controls and instruments. The Murphy Aircraft Radical Construction Like all Murphy high wing designs aluminum was again chosen for the RADICAL. The benefits of aluminum sheet are just too many ignore. Easy to assemble Easy to inspect Easy to repair No welds to break Impervious to UV Superior weathering resistance Suitable for mass production (keeps costs down) Lighter weight Murphy Aircraft has invested heavily in modern CNC equipment. The design freedom these machines give us reduces manufacturing time for us and building time for the customer.

Goldwing ultralight aircraft, Goldwing all composite, canard configuration ultralight.
 
04:03
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – The Goldwing is an ultralight aircraft of the canard configuration. Conventional 3-axis controls are incorporated into the foam-fiberglass composite structured airframe. Handling is described as straightforward and docile with very forgiving characteristics. It is was sold as a kit. The nose-mounted canard not only provides lift, but also pitch stability and control. Winglets provide directional stability while increasing the effective aspect ratio, without a sacrifice in handling. Split rudders produce yaw while maintaining the winglet advantage. Spoilers and ailerons are used together for roll control at all speeds. The fully independent 3-axis control system enables the Goldwing to handle crosswind takeoffs and landings. Power is provided by a two cylinder, electric start, 25 hp snowmobile engine. Full throttle at sea level gives a climb of 600 fpm at 47 mph, while power is pulled back to 75% throttle for a comfortable 500 fpm. At the economy cruise setting of 50% throttle, the airspeed holds at 50 mph while the fuel consumption drops to one gallon per hour. At higher power settings, the aircraft has been clocked at 85 mph in level flight. High altitude performance at 9,000 feet density altitude resulted in a takeoff roll of 400 feet and a climb rate of 400 fpm. During stall and spin testing, the Goldwing was capable of being flown with full aft stick at an indicated 27 mph, while maintaining full control at all power settings. The canard would not stall unless forced into an accelerated stall. In that case, the canard would rise above the horizon, make a gentle break at 24 mph, and then rise back up to the horizon where it would remain with full aft stick. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Aeromaster Spray plane, Aerolite Aeromaster experimental aircraft crop sprayer.
 
04:49
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – AeroLites began producing ultralight aircraft in the early 1980s. In 1989 it purchased the design rights, manufacturing rights, and tooling for the Ag Master from Jack Hutchison of Hutchison aircraft. They then renamed the plane, the AeroMaster. The AeroMaster is a very unique aircraft in that it is designed to be a very rugged and affordable spray plane for farmers. In fact, I had the opportunity to visit Louisiana and fly the AeroMaster. Powered by a Rotax 582 65 hp engine, loaded with chemical the aircraft jumped off the ground in less than 250 feet. Climb rate was well over 700 ft./m, and cruise speed came in at 75 mph. According to the manufacturer the plane will pay for itself in less than four years, when compared to having a commercial sprayer operator come in and spray your property. The aircraft is constructed of 4130 chromoly steel tubing, uses aluminum ladder style construction in the wings, which are covered in Dacron sailcloth. The plane is 18'5" long, 7 feet high and has a wingspan of 28'7" with a total wing area of 145 ft. This gives the aircraft, a wing loading up 6.86 pounds per square foot. When flown without the spray equipment attached aircraft is quite capable of climbing at 1200 ft./m. Stall speed comes in at 25 mph. With the standard 10 gallon fuel tank. You have approximately 2 hours of flight time, or roughly 150 mile range. The spray tank is 30 gallons and has an emergency dump system. Building time is between 120 and 200 hours. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Chipper Experimental Aircraft, Belite Aircraft offers Metal Wing Option for Chipper. Now Quick Build Time Estimates Updated to 350 hours Use of metal skins improves performance, reduces build times to as little as 350 hours, increases aircraft value.May 17, 2018—Wichita KS – The Chipper STOL, a two place EAB aircraft kit from Belite Enterprises, is now available with a metal wing option. This option substantially reduces build time, reduces drag, improves performance and will improve the resale value of Chippers. The metal wing option is offered for $1320. Application of the metal skins is bonded by the builder in a simple process which may be done in four hours per wing skin. The net weight difference adds 15 pounds to the aircraft. In comparison to conventional fabric, the builder will save several hundred hours of time. Build time estimates have been changed for Chipper. With metal skins, total build time is now estimated at 700 hours. With purchase of a Quick Build kit and by having Builder Assist install the skins, estimated build time is reduced to 350 hours. The FAA has certified the Quick Build kit as compliant with amateur build rules. Wiebe made comments about the utility and performance of Chipper: "Typical finished weight of a metal Chipper is 625 to 630 pounds with a Rotax engine and 21" tires. Useful load is greater than 600 pounds, and engines up to 120 HP may be used. With my upgraded Rotax, I'm cruising at about 92 knots with huge tundra tires and long Alaska main / tail gear @ 5.4 GPH. Furthermore, my Chipper is set up with nearly 50 gallons of usable fuel, allowing a remarkable 8 hour range. This has aided my flying into remote wilderness in northern Canada and Alaska," Wiebe continued. The first Chipper recently passed the 200 hour milestone on James' flight to Alaska. Chipper was shown at the Alaska Airman show. http://www.ultralightflyer.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © The Ultralight Flyer Video Magazine.

Thatcher Aircraft, Thatcher CX 4 and CX 5 experimental amateurbuilt aircraft.
 
10:04
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com -- Thatcher Aircraft, Thatcher CX 4 and CX 5 experimental amateurbuilt aircraft. Flight segments in this video courtesy of www.youtube.com/user/n3jx. Dan Johnson talks to Greg Westberry of Westberry Manufacturing about the Thatcher CX -- 4 single seat experimental light sport aircraft and the soon to be released CX 5, during the EAA Sun N Fun convention held at Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland Florida. Greg is producing kits for the Thatcher CX 4. He is also preparing kits for the Thatcher CX 5 a tandem seating two seat experimental aircraft. The kits that Greg is producing are manufactured using CNC equipment, with matched hole drilling for easy parts alignment. This type of building process means that all of the holes are predrilled and all of the metal comes pre-bent. This means no jigs are needed to build the aircraft as the parts act as the jigs when they are clecoed together. Building from plans using raw materials will take between 900 and 1000 hours to complete. Building from kits will cut this building time to more than half. The Thatcher line of aircraft were been designed by Dave Thatcher for first time homebuilders, with no special tools or knowledge required. Dave aircraft mechanic, designer and builder is in his 80's and has been involved in aviation since his youth. Both the Thatcher CX 4 and CX 5 are all metal aircraft powered by Volkswagen aircraft engine conversions. Currently there are over 40 CX 4 aircraft flying with approximately another 50 in various stages of completion. The estimated costs to get as CX 4 flying is $25,000 US. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

The name Legal Eagle came about when Leonard weighted the plane and it came in at 10 lbs less than the 254 lbs weight limit for the U.S. - thus "this Eagle is legal became the "LEGAL EAGLE." The plane features a welded fuselage with an all wood wing, similar to that of a Mini Max, the tail section is aluminums tube using pop rivets and gussets. Controls are standard stick and rudder, with ailerons. The plane is powered by a "better half" VW engine. The plane cruises along at 53 mph, stalls at 19, and according to Leonard is "real responsive and a pleasure to fly." All of the control systems are located outside the fuselage and the wings are completely sealed to prevent "those creepy crawly things" from getting in. "The whole idea of this plane is to be economical - you can afford it if you want to do the work." The plans consist of a cover sheet with the specifications on it, 42 sheets of drawings, and a materials list. Leonard estimates building time to be about 6 months. The engine is unique in that it is not a "half VW" but rather uses a full case. Plans for both the Legal Eagle and the engine are also available. The design features a fuselage of welded 4130 steel tubing, mated to an all-wood wing made from spruce. The struts and tail surfaces are made from 6061 T6 aluminium tubing. The flying surfaces are covered with standard aircraft fabric covering materials. The rear fuselage is normally left as an open truss structure to save weight and to ensure that the aircraft does not exceed the FAR 103 maximum speed of 55 knots (102 km/h; 63 mph). Like the fuselage, the taildragger landing gear is sprung steel. The aircraft has been developed into several variants of the basic design including the XL version for larger pilots and a two seat ultralight trainer and Light-sport aircraft. Legal Eagle Basic model with a 244 lb (111 kg) empty weight, powered by a 30 hp (22 kW) Half VW engine Legal Eagle XL Model for larger pilots with a wider and taller seat, greater wing area and longer tail. 246 lb (112 kg) empty weight http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Tucano LSA Flying Legends Tucano Experimental Aircraft Sport Aviation Showcase 2017 Deland Florida. During the Cold War, Brazil (FAB – Força Aérea Brasileira) allied with the United States of America and NATO, and directed and sponsored Embraer (Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica), still as of today one of the leaders in aeronautical industry. Teaming with Aeritalia and Aeronautica Militare Italiana, Embraer designed and built the first AMX fighter-bombers which still make up the che spine of FAB’s attack force. The next projects, the trainer Tucano T-27 and light fighter A-29 were other Embraer aircrafts employed by Brazilian aviation. EMB 312 Tucano is a mono turboprop engine low wing basic trainer airplane, produced from mid 1980’s. Used in military flight school of various military aviations of the World, Tucano is characterized by a tandem two seats cabin with a raised rear seat in order to allow a wider visibility for the instructor. Similarly to other trainers, different versions of the airplane have been produced, some of which sold as a light attack. The Tucano-LSA with fixed landing gear and fixed pitch prop, is the right aircraft for those who wish to fly a very easy aircraft with a fighter look. Confortable, easy, stable, allows cross-country fly really enjoyable and safe. The structure is been designed and tested for MTOW 1433 Lbs at load factor +6/-3 G. the US LSA regulation, limits the MTOW at 1320 Lbs The experimental replica of the Tucano with retractable landing gear and variable pitch is the right choice of aircraft for all these pilots who have already dreamed to fly a war bird and feel like a military fighter. Thanks to its heavy-duty structure and the new wings design, it flies very stable and allows to perform basic acrobatic maneuvers in safe conditions.

Visit - https://www.patreon.com/lightsportandultralightflyer to sign up. You can also purchase a yearly or life time subscription at http://www.ultralightflyer.com Thank You for your support! The Fisher FP-202 Koala was designed by Mike Fisher and Wayne Ison in 1981-3 time frame. It was an early Ultralight that actually looked like an airplane - unique in the days of flying spiders made of tubing and sail cloth. All wood construction made it an easy to build and inexpensive kit. Although designed for (US) part 103 Ultralight rules, very few current aircraft make weight as it is common for twin cylinder engines to be used. The Koala is the most popular design of the 14 models Fisher Flying Products offers. With quoted 3000 + aircraft building or flying. It is modeled after the J-3 Cub and offers nostalgic good looks. The Koala has 120 square ft. of wing area, a 254-300 lbs empty, a 500 lbs. + gross, designed for enignes under 60 horsepower. It has a very narrow fuselage and many builders will add a few inches to allow a more comfortable fit. With the Fisher FP-202 Koala, the standard for personal aircraft has been redefined, but not redesigned. A strikingly faithful reproduction of one of the most popular aircraft ever built, the Koala can make the dream of owning a classic flying machine a reality. Proven geodetic wood construction gives the FP 202 its strength; proven Fisher ingenuity gives the plane its appeal. A totally enclosed cockpit provides plenty of room for the pilot, while economy of instrumentation and controls allow plenty of room for fun flying. More classic-style aircraft hardware abounds: An aluminum strut braced main spar carrythrough, a ground adjustable horizontal stabilizer, 14-inch pneumatic tires with rubber shock cord, and removable cockpit panels for summer flight. The FP-202 Koala is a single seat plane designed by Wayne Ison in 1981 and produced since by Fisher Flying Products. The Fisher FP202 "Koala" has been in production as a kit since about 1983. The craft uses all wood geodetic construction covered in standard aircraft covering materials. Standard features include an enclosed cockpit with removable side panels, large pneumatic tires, a steerable tail wheel, 5 gallon fuel tank, fiberglass cowl and full scale plans. Using the standard kit it takes about 500 hours to build a plane; using the Quick-Build kit it takes about 200 hours to build the plane. Options include various engines, quick built kit options, brakes, electric start, and wheel pants. Also available are construction videos and a newsletter. http://www.ultralightflyer.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © The Ultralight Flyer Video Magazine.

http://www.mountvernonaviationexpo.com – Hummel Bird, Hummel UltraCruiser, Hummel H5 from Hummel Aviation. Shiny Part 103 ultralight aircraft from Hummel Aviation. By Dan Johnson, The big summer celebration of flight has ended. I have more info from AirVenture 2015 and next I plan a summary article. A preview includes the most positive prognosis from industry players I have seen in recent years; strong sales reported by several producers; several interesting developments or benchmarks; and a wonderful week of weather as icing on the cake. My video partner and I put in long days to secure perhaps 30 or more new videos including many on the freshest topics in light aviation. The Shiniest Part 103 ... We shot a video interview on the line of Hummel Aviation light aircraft, including two Part 103 models and one Experimental Amateur Built version. Toward the end of the week, one that had been sheltered in a tent on one end of the sprawling AirVenture grounds was hand towed to the Ultralight Area — called the Fun Fly Zone — so people could see this mirror-finish (highly polished aluminum) UltraCruiser in the air. You cannot imagine the effort needed to make aluminum gleam like this effort by Steve Cole. The gleaming example in the nearby photos was built by Steve Cole from Indianapolis over a three year and eight month period, from plans. It meets all the Part 103 parameters — empty weight of 254 pounds; 5 gallons of fuel; 55-knot (63 mph) cruise; 24-knot stall — yet can climb enthusiastically at 1,000 fpm using its half-VW 45-horsepower engine from Scott Casler. The four stroke powerplant burns only 1.7 gallons an hour. For those a bit less ambitious or skilled than Steve, kits are also available and all models boast truly affordable prices. You may not be able to make yours look like Scott's UltraCruiser, but certainly here is a line of airplanes for those on tighter budgets, and isn't she a pretty thing that still requires no pilot license, no medical, no N-numbers, and a very simple set of rules that fit on a single sheet of paper. UltraCruiser is a Part 103 legal all-metal ultralight, although the company notes that the trigear version will be too heavy to qualify as a 103 as is a model with a full canopy. "UltraCruiser is an easy to build and even easier to fly aircraft," stated Hummel Aviation. The design can be built straight from plans up to, and including a full kit. The kit includes predrilled laser cut components. All parts are formed or welded for you. Wheels, tires, brakes, harness, and even the seat cushion is included. The kit is very complete. Everything is included to complete the aircraft less the engine, prop, spinner, and instruments. "The complete set of plans contains 26 large drawings with all bulkheads, wing ribs and skins [depicted in actual, full] size. A 30-page step by step manual is very complete. Only simple shop tools are required," said company owner Terry Hallett. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Acrolite IT triplane experimental aircraft kit, ultralight aircraft in Canada.
 
03:39
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – What, a triplane! Well why not? Nobody has designed a new triplane since the end of WW1 so why not a modern light plane version using the latest technology and engines from the ultralight industry. We are not talking a pseudo copy of an old WW1 plane but a new light sport triplane using as much modern technology and materials as is practical and cost effective. What are the advantages and disadvantages of a triplane? Disadvantages; High drag from wing interference and lift loss from six wing tips. The extra work required to build six wings. Loss of visibility due to the location of the center and lower wings blocking the line of sight to the front and down. Advantages; The high aspect ratio of the wings allows an excellent rate of climb and a good glide ratio if the wing interference drag can be reduced. High roll rate from the short span wings. Good longitudinal stability due to the extra lift centers. Unusual and eye catching aircraft that will attract attention no matter where it is flown. How do we maximize the advantages and minimize the disadvantages? By utilizing a modern airfoil, narrow wing chord, lots of wing stagger and properly shaped wingtips we can reduce the interference drag and the tip loss. Create "quick build" wings using common wood working tools that most builders have on hand. The wings would be built much the same way as a model airplane. By using a light 2 stroke engine the wings can be mounted further back than they would have to be for a conventional aircraft engine thereby keeping them out of the field of view, also the narrow chord wings do not block the vision the way the wide chord wings do in a biplane Supply full size patterns for all the fittings, controls, ribs, panels and bulkheads to make layout work faster and easier for the builder. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Afford A Plane ultralight or experimental amateurbuilt aircraft.

http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com -- What's the cheapest and easiest ultralight airplane to build from plans? One of the best contenders is the Affordaplane - or 'A-Plane' as this sophisticated, yet ultra-simple ultralight is popularly called. The Affordaplane was introduced in 2001 as a back-to-basics, all aluminum, true three axis airplane that anyone could build, especially those on a tight budget. The design goals for this unique airplane were nostalgic looks (having incorporated the best elements of classic taildraggers such as the Cubs and Champs), ease of assembly, and performance that rivals more expensive ultralights. Safety was also paramount, and resulted in an airframe that surrounds the pilot through 360 degrees. A thirteen year perfect safety record backs up the claim that this is one safe, tough bird. The A-Plane's fuselage structure is based on immensely strong two-inch square tubes, similar to many gyroplanes. A technique known as 'match-hole' drilling is used to join the parts. Cut, drill, and bolt, to get a perfect fit. Many builders complete their airframe in a single weekend, an unheard of achievement in airplane construction! At 5' high, the A-Plane is 17'3" long with a 27.5' wing span. The wing features full span ailerons, for perfect control even during strong crosswinds, that would ground other ultralights. Weight is a legal 254 pounds with a gross weight of 540 pounds. This airplane can easily accommodate 6' plus pilots that weigh up to 240 pounds. Controls are standard three-axis stick and rudder with full span ailerons. The flight envelope was designed to be ultralight legal in accordance with FAR Part 103. Cruise is around 60 mph with a vne of 75 mph. Stall meets the 27 mph or lower minimum. Takeoffs are between 45 to 50 mph and and landing speeds come in around 28 to 30 mph. Climb rates average 1000 feet per minute. Engines recommended in the plans are in the 35 to 45 hp range. One increasingly popular choice is the 1/2 Volkswagen engine. Other motors such as the Kawasaki 440 are also a good choice. Plans for the Affordaplane are very complete, and have been recently revised and updated. Affordaplane Aircraft was one of the pioneers of 'digital E-Plans', and customers love the savings and ability to instantly have the plans at their fingertips. It is a great way to get started with your own aviation dreams, and currently we are having a plans sale. The plans also include two classic ultralight construction manuals (over 300 pages!) that are included as a free bonus. The complete package represents the best value available today in homebuilt aircraft plans. So if your dream is to fly in your own airplane, you can get started right now by visiting the plans page at Affordaplane.com! http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Bearhawk lsa, Bearhawk Light Sport Aircraft by Bearhawk Experimental Aircraft.

http://www.ultralightflyer.com – Bearhawk lsa, Bearhawk Light Sport Aircraft by Bearhawk Aircraft, By Dan Johnson Are you lusting after a Cub lookalike but can't afford the steep price tags these popular flying machines carry? How about something much more affordable? A taildragger called Bearhawk has picked up accolades from AirVenture judges and owners appear very loyal. Sometimes those of us close to factory built Light-Sport Aircraft tend to forget about the homebuilt community. However, more pilots exercising the privileges of Sport Pilot are flying kit-built airplanes than ready-to-fly models, a trend that is likely to continue because a kit represents a lower cost option and one where the owner can more easily do all repair work. Let me clarify, though. Bearhawk is Sport Pilot eligible (using a term my longtime EAA friend, Ron Wagner, coined); it is technically not a Light-Sport. Bearhawk LSA made its debut at AirVenture two years ago as a prototype constructed by its designer, Bob Barrows. Recently a customer flew the first completed kit. Bearhawk Aircraft owner/builder Mark Goldberg completed the first Bearhawk LSA quick-build kit, N514AK, and flew it to AirVenture. The trip from Texas took 9.7 hours cruising at just under 100 mph while burning 4.5 gallons per hour. Portions of the flight were done at up to 118 mph consuming 6 gph Mark said. Goldberg's Bearhawk uses a Barrows-engineered 105-horsepower Continental Motors O-200 engine under the cowl. Following a four seat model, Bearhawk LSA is "a clean-sheet design with an all-new airfoil, developed by Harry Riblett," said Barrows. Construction is similar to other Bearhawk aircraft, with fuselage and tail surfaces of welded 4130 chromoly frames covered in fabric. The all aluminum, flush riveted wings are supported by a single strut. Bearhawk designs are popular for their solid performance and pleasant flight qualities. The designs are known for short field capability, gentle slow speed manners, yet manage reasonably high cruise speeds. The legions of folks buying Cubalike designs can consider Bearhawk and save a bundle while flying faster, not a bad combination. Bearhawk is available as a quick-build kit from the Austin, Texas company. Empty weight of Bearhawk LSA is 750+ pounds, depending on equipment an owner installs, yielding a useful load of 570 pounds. With 30-gallon tanks full of fuel, payload calculates to 390 pounds. Of course local flying can be done with less than that large amount of fuel; the 31-inch-wide cockpit will accommodate a couple big fellows in tandem seating (photo). As the airplane is designed for a maximum weight of 1,500 pounds, Bearhawk boasts an additional margin at the 1,320-pound LSA limit. A quick-build Bearhawk LSA with no welding required and wings completed to a significant extent — including full riveting of the top skin, fuel tanks, and ailerons — costs $36,000. The welded steel frame has all tabs in place and is primed and painted. Even with exterior paint, avionics, and a new O-200 engine, a completed airplane may cost less than $80,000 or about half of a basic model CubCrafters. Other engine choices (65 to 120 horsepower is supported) can further hold down the expense, especially if you find a good used powerplant. Here are additional specifications of Bearhawk LSA: Cruise Speed — 115-125 mph (100-110 knots) Landing Speed — 30 mph (26 knots) Range (with tanks full at 30 gallons) — 650 pounds Wing Span — 34 feet Wing Area — 171 square feet Length — 22 feet, 3 inches Height (in three point position) — 75 inches Cabin Width — 31 inches Cabin Length — 97 inches http://www.ultralightflyer.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © The Ultralight Flyer Video Magazine.

Panther Experimental Amateurbuilt light sport aircraft from Sport Performance Aviation.
 
09:38
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com -- Panther Experimental Amateurbuilt light sport aircraft - Dan Johnson gives us a quick look at the Panther experimental light sport aircraft from Sport Performance Aviation during the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, held at the Sebring Regional Airport Sebring Florida. Dan and Rachel Weseman are a husband and wife team that are producing several aerobatic experimental light sport aircraft, from their facilities near Jacksonville Florida. Their first entry into the market is the single seat Panther in a tail dragger version, but by the end of 2014 they hope to have a tri-cycle gear and a two seat Panther available to the kit builder. The kit features a factory welded 4130 steel cage fuselage, with an all metal wing coming with prebuilt spars and fuel tanks. The single seat Panther is powered by a Corvair automotive conversion, which puts out 120 HP, but Dan indicates that a number of engine mounts will be available including mounts for Lycoming, Continental, Jabiru, UL, and Rotax! The single seat Panther is available with two wing lengths, a 23.5 foot wing for the LSA market, and a 21.5 foot wingspan for those wanting a little more performance. It should be mentioned that the wings can be folded for ease storage in as little as 15 minutes by one person. When we spoke to Dan at Sebring he indicated that the firewall back kit starts at under $12,000.00.

Flying Squirrel M19 experimental aircraft by the late Marvin Barnard.
 
07:07
http://www.ultralightflyer.com – The M-19 is a single-place, high-wing, conventional fixed gear (taildragger) aircraft powered by the Volkswagen engine converted for aircraft use. Recommended horsepower is in the range of 50-60 HP. Any less than that will probably work, but will be borderline in performance. Any more than that will be extra weight and fuel consumption, and won't gain you much of value. The basic design does not include brakes, wing flaps, or trim. The Barnard M-19 "Flying Squirrel" is the sport pilot's airplane, an affordable, simple, reliable homebuilt airplane that brings with it a return to flying the way it was intended to be. Many other homebuilt and kit designs have made these same claims, but very few have delivered. This one does, and Marvin Barnard is the main reason why. The M-19 was conceived and designed by Marvin R. Barnard, a man who has managed to focus on the most basic of motivations for homebuilding: to create an airplane which can be built quickly and easily using basic materials and methods, at the lowest possible cost. Marvin built and tested the prototype, and flies it regularly. The M-19 was never intended to be a trophy winner in any category but one: SATISFACTION. Building and flying this airplane should satisfy the pilot's desire to fly a basic standard airplane, and satisfy the builder and experimenter's desire to... build and experiment! http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Just Aircraft, Just 103 Solo legal part 103 ultralight aircraft, Troy Woodland www.justaircraft.com We don’t know too much about Just 103 yet but it won’t take long before we get plenty more. Designer Troy Woodland — of SuperSTOL fame — said he almost got the new bird in the air before Oshkosh and will certainly do so in the next few weeks. It should be market ready by end of year. From some folks I’d find that a rather bold promise but Troy has a proven track record of getting flying machines to market. Up front, Troy mounted the Polini Thor 250 engine, which provides 37 horsepower at 7500 rpm. With an engine weight of barely over 40 pounds and the proper Part 103 airframe weight, this Thor engine should provide spirited performance. Fuel usage is very low; remember, these engines got popular on powered paragliders where the pilot carries engine and fuel on his or her back, so big gas tanks aren’t needed. Troy went with a boom tube to the tailplane to keep weight down and to maintain a genuine ultralight look. Readers who have followed this sector may recognize both the Capella Javelin and TEAM’s AirBike. (Also see this Zlin airplane.) The latter comparison is especially apt because this is one of those airplanes you get on rather than in. Pilots side astride the welded steel forward fuselage with their feet on the rudder pedals out in the breeze, although at a top allowed speed of 63 mph (55 knots), that breeze won’t be particularly windy. Troy indicated they have done all the analysis and much of the testing (wings are done even though they weren’t brought to Oshkosh). He is sure it will make the empty weight challenge of 254 pounds. Before it even flies, no price has been set, but with an engine price well under $4,000 and a simple airframe from a very established builder, it is reasonable to think Just 103 will be quite affordable.

MVP Aircraft – from MVP Aero the Most Versatile Aircraft in the light sport aircraft category?
 
11:42
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – Dan Johnson talks to Darrell Lynds about the MVP from MVP Aero. The MVP or Most Versatile Plane is the latest entry into the ever expanding amphibious light sport aircraft market. The MVP does not put more features (and weight) on an already challenging, weight-restricted airplane instead the design required a paradigm shift from traditional thinking. This different approach is the key to understanding just how the factory is going to achieve the goals set for the MVP. In the simplest of terms, the MVP is not an amphibious airplane that has all of these new features added to it. Instead, it is a highly integrated collection of features, pieces and parts that happen to become an airplane. Once the old adage, “an airplane is 10,000 compromises flying in formation” had been fully abandoned, this new attitude begins to reveal amazing opportunities, synergies, and relationships. Ultimately, the new features become completely intertwined with the parts that make up the airplane. As a result the MVP delivers a diverse feature-set while also delivering a respectable useful load. Flanking both sides of the MVP are nose to tail catwalks that enable movement all over the MVP for on the water preflight of the engine, inspection of the tail and the wing’s aft mounted control surfaces. Or, one can simply access the aft fuselage to deploy and relax in a fitted hammock that stretches between the engine pylon and the tail. The MVP’s most compelling feature is that it transforms into a versatile floating platform. The canopy moves upwards and back on a 4-bar link to sit atop the engine pylon. This frees up the nose of the MVP to resemble the front of a classic bass-type fishing boat. With the canopy open, the MVP’s engine can be run so as to continue to shore or dock, or to motor along to the next cove or fishing spot. This configuration also enables a passenger to step up onto the forward deck to assist in docking and beaching duties. Excellent stability of the hull keeps the MVP relatively flat as both occupants move about. And to create the perfect fishing or observation perch, either seat can be repositioned onto a pedestal up on the forward deck. The Instrument panel is a self-contained pod that pivots up and out of the way, not only to help protect it from dripping swim suits and flip flops, but also to provide a way to create a larger flat deck. Four hinged folding panels (called the origami deck) stow atop the forward deck under the canopy and are able to be deployed in two halves to fully cover the seats of the cockpit, enabling a completely flat floor from the bow to the back of the baggage compartment. This floor is level whether floating on the water, or parked on level ground. This amazingly big surface on a relatively little airplane is just large enough for two people to stretch out and sleep. Deploying a fitted tent and inflating a fitted air mattress makes spending the night a delight. Traveling from marina to marina on a big adventure couldn’t be easier with the MVP’s on-the-water folding wings. Taxi up close and shut down the engine. Fold the wings, and propel the MVP towards the slip with use of an on-board trolling motor. Integrated within the bilge, is a useful bow thruster to help make docking a breeze. With all these features, one might expect there to be compromises made to the flight and handling qualities of the MVP. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The MVP should prove to be a top performer and a joy to fly in its class. High-aspect ratio/high lift wings, excellent stability, crisp controls, comfortable seats and excellent visibility will all contribute to making the MVP a sheer joy to fly. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Acrolite 1 B experimental aircraft kit, ultralight aircraft kit in Canada.
 
03:11
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – The Acrolite was designed as a good performing entry level aerobatic capable aircraft in a light, low cost package for those pilots that want a more exciting and challenging aircraft to fly than the more common type of light and ultralight aircraft. Designed by Ron Wilson of Murillo Ontario, it was the winner of the 1995 Scratch Build Design Contest sponsored by Aircraft Spruce and Specialty Co. of Fullerton California and hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association in Oshkosh Wisconsin. This design won out over 102 entries from all over the world. Aircraft Spruce sponsored the cost of building the airframe and the aircraft was built in one year by Peter Eisenbach of Thunder Bay and Vern Ennis and Harold Spithoff of Kakabeka Falls Ontario. It was designed with strength, ability to take abuse, ease of repair, good short field performance and stable flight characteristics as the most important features. The strut braced staggered wing biplane design affords good visibility and requires a pilot with only average flying ability but with some experience in high performance taildraggers. The design and basic construction is in accordance with standard aircraft practices and aircraft grade materials are used throughout. The aircraft is conservatively stressed for a limit load of 6 G positive and 4 G negative with a 1.5 safety factor at a gross weight of 750 lbs. For the best performance and reliability the preferred engine is the four cylinder Rotax 912. This is the engine used in the prototype. However the Rotax 582/618 twin cylinder two stroke with a "C" or "E" type gear reduction drive will give good aerobatic performance at a lower cost. The fuselage is constructed of welded 4130 chrome moly steel tube. A welded steel fuselage is generally considered to be the most durable, is easy to repair and provides the best protection against impact damage. Control linkages to the ailerons and elevator are push-pull rods with bearings on each end. Rudder and steerable tailwheel control is via a common cable. The tail assembly is constructed of 6061 aluminum tube riveted together with 2024-T3 aluminum gusset plates. The wing is of stressed skin wood construction with a built up box section main spar, built up ribs, plywood sheeting and fabric covered. The builder will also have the option of building the wing entirely of 2024-T3 aluminum with a box section main spar, a channel section rear spar, fully sheeted and flush riveted with 1/8 inch diameter stainless steel blind rivets. The airfoil is GA30-212 semi-symmetrical section designed by Harry Ribblett. This airfoil is noted for its low drag and excellent stall characteristics. The ailerons are semi-full span aluminum tube, static balanced. The fuselage, empennage and ailerons are fabric covered with 1.7 oz PolyFiber fabric. The landing gear is one piece spring aluminum clamped and bolted directly to the bottom of the fuselage with four bolts. This type landing gear has low drag is easy to construct and handles hard landings and rough ground well. The wheels and tires are 500 X 5 aircraft type with cable operated drum brakes. Optionally hydraulic operated disk brakes can also be used. The tailwheel spring is formed from aluminum flat bar and the tailwheel swivel unit is welded from chrome moly sheet steel. The 5 inch diameter tail wheel is molded hi-impact plastic. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Kolb Mark III Xtra embodies all of the design features and flying characteristics of our Mark III Classic. It is easy-to-build and easy to fly. With its gross weight of 1000 lbs. and slow stall speed, it qualifies as an experimental kit build light sport aircraft... Perfect for Sport Pilot! HIGH PERFORMANCE The Mark III Xtra is aerodynamically designed to offer increased speed. With the expertise of Barnaby Wainfan, enhancements were made to the fuselage section of the aircraft which generously offers an additional 10-15 mph cruise speed of 80 mph with the Rotax 582, and 90 mph with the Rotax 912. STURDY CONSTRUCTION The welded chrome-moly steel fuselage cage provides the solid feel of a "real" airplane. For strength and durability in airframe structures, aluminum and steel are superior. The heart of the Mark III Xtra, the fuselage cage, is made from strong, factory welded 4130 chrome-moly steel. We also use 4130 steel in all high stress areas. All Kolb Aircraft utilize traditional control systems, cables and push-pull tubes. Mark III Xtra wings have rigid truss ribs and a massive 6" aircraft aluminum wing spar. Covered with Stits aircraft covering, there is no comparison! SPORTY HANDLING The doors/windows are removable which makes for great summer flying. Although Kolb aircraft are easy to fly and have gentle flight characteristics, they are also high performance aircraft. We recommend training or some transition training before attempting flight in our aircraft. FOLDING WINGS & TAIL Like all Kolb aircraft, the Mark III Xtra has folding wings and tail which allow for easy storage or trailering. The tail folds up and the wings fold back along the fuselage in about 15 minutes by one person. No tools or brackets are required Everything stores right on the airframe. Many of our customers fold and unfold their airplanes routinely every time they fly -- year after year. This allows for money saving compact storage at the airport or at home. Optional toe pedal brakes provide for sure stops and allow a tighter turning radius. The flaps and ailerons and optional brakes allow the Mark III Xtra to be landed, stopped and maneuvered in very tight areas. GREAT VISIBILITY Additionally, the modifications made to the fuselage (an added 12" in length) resulted in more cockpit space, more baggage space, and more leg room. The cockpit ergonomics have been modified moving the instrument panel closer to the pilot. The larger windshield area adds even more to the already outstanding visibility offered by Kolb aircraft. Flaps are standard equipment and decrease the stall speed by 4-5 mph, but more importantly, allow for very steep descents without building up excessive airspeed. This is exactly what is needed to drop into a short field or for an emergency landing. BENEFICIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MARK III XTRA INCLUDE STOL performance, roomy cabin, superior visibility, sturdy construction, quick folding wings and tail, superb handling and the ability to carry large people and pay loads. What you get in addition is increased speed, more cabin room, and more visibility. The full enclosure doors are modified to swing forward to facilitate easier entry and exit of the aircraft. http://www.ultralightflyer.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © The Ultralight Flyer Video Magazine.

BD 17L experimental aircraft from Jim Bede Corp.
 
07:02
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com -- BD 17L experimental Aircraft - Dan Johnson gives us a quick look at the BD 17L experimental light sport aircraft, from Jim Bede Corp. during the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, held at the Sebring Regional Airport Sebring Florida. The BD-17 incorporates everything that famed aircraft designer Jim Bede has learned in 45 years of aircraft design and engineering. A pioneer in the homebuilt aircraft field, Bede has launched a dozen significant designs, including the crowd-pleasing BD-5J single-seat pocket jet, sweetheart of a thousand air shows and star of the James Bond classic "Octopussy". The BD-4 (now the 4-B) which was the first star of the homebuilt industry; the fighter-like BD-10 single-place executive jet; and the two-place BD-1, which ultimately became the production Grumman American. Below are some of the features that make the BD-17 an ideal plane for the first-time builder, an economical time-builder for pilots, and a superior aircraft where there is a premium on ability to cover a lot of ground at low cost. The BD-17 is a fast build, using modular design, and can be assembled in less than 200 hours on your site as either a tricycle gear or tail-wheel aircraft, with a choice of three solid engines. (A two-car garage is more than adequate for construction) If you choose to do it yourself, dealer support is fast,dependable, and if necessary more intense dealer involvement available. The BD-17 wing spar is strong, light and simple, extruded aircraft-quality aluminum tube. Both wing spars slide over a center spar rigidly, fastened to the fuselage, providing exceptional load-carrying strength. Ribs are made of the same honeycomb aluminum that makes the fuselage 300% stronger than conventional construction. The BD-17's wing spar has been tested to 11.2 Gs without failure in destructive testing. The honeycomb wing ribs form a series of sealed panels in each wing, capable of holding up to ten gallons of fuel in each with the option of an additional panel on each wing to store fuel. Wing Structure The fuselage is built with sheets of honeycomb aluminum which is a factory-assembled sandwich of two half-inch thick aluminum panels bonded to a center section of light, strong vertically-aligned quarter-inch high aluminum cells. The honeycomb panels are heavier than typical construction, but the added 20 percent in weight is more than offset by 300 % strength improvement. Honeycomb-structure The name is bond- fast bond. The fuselage panels are bonded together with .020 sheet-metal angles. We bond fuselage angles on the outside at the factory, to assure precise geometry leaving the inside bonding up to the customer. The wing and empennage panels use the same bonding materials and techniques utilized in building military aircraft. The high-performance epoxy bonds cure in one hour at room temperature with minimum surface prep. Each fuselage panel comes cut to size with pre-drilled holes for internal bracketing. Innovative torque-tube controls and polyfoam control surfaces are featured on the BD-17. The ailerons, like the flaps and rudder, are made of sturdy self-skinning long-life polyurethane molded to a torque tube. To finish the control surfaces, the builder needs only to prime and paint the surface of the wings and tail giving it an unlimited life span. http://www.sportaviationexpos.com http://youtu.be/uY8lOlXq_x0 Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Belite Pro Cub Lite Part 103 legal ultralight aircraft from Belite Aircraft
 
12:27
http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com -- Belite Pro Cub Lite ultralight aircraft from Belite Aircraft. At the E.A.A.'s Sun N Fun Convention held at Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland Florida Dan Johnson had the opportunity to talk to James Wiebe about his latest Part 103 legal ultralight aircraft design the Belite ProCub Lite. This is James's third ultralight design. The Belite series of aircraft were originally based on the Kitfox Lite, using a welded 4130 chromoly steel fuselage, with aluminum tube wing spars and wood ribs. To cub down on weight and building times James has modified the design to use an aluminum metal, rivet together fuselage. In the ProCub lite he has also introduced the use of CNC cut foam. The foam is primarily used in the wing, cabin area, fuselage and tail section. For added strength in the fuselage and tail section either aluminum channel or carbon fiber are added. In the wing two inch foam strips are sandwiched between aluminum ribs, connected to either aluminum or carbon fiber spars. Jim has also now offering a new engine model to the design. Last year while attending the Aero exposition in Germany he came across a the Polini Thor 250 engine with water cooling, geared reduction, electric start, pull start, a generating system and that produces 36.5 horsepower. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

FireFly, Kolb Firefly, AL Force One legal part 103 Firefly ultralight aircraft from Kolb Aircraft.
 
11:17
http://www.ultralightflyer.com – FireFly, Kolb Aircraft Firefly, AL Force One legal part 103 ultralight aircraft from Kolb Aircraft. One of the most fun flying ultralight aircraft that I have ever flown has to be the Kolb Firefly, which is one of the reasons that I have it rated as the number 1 true part 103 ultralight in my Best Bang for the Buck series on you Tube and on my website UltralightNews. While at Sun N Fun I ran into Allan Bilodeau, who credited my video and articles for one of the reasons he purchased a Kolb Firefly! Al didn't buy his kit from Kolb, instead buying it from an estate sale. The kit was a quick build, with the wings and fuselage already built. When Al came to pick up the kit he found that he had purchased "a Corvette in a barn". He was amazed to find that it came with a brand new in the box Rotax 447 and a BRS Ballistic Recovery system! "Like a kid in a candy store, Al worked for two months solid to finish the plane off, covering, painting and doing the final assembly." During that time he had numerous conversations with Kolb Aircraft, and was amazed to find that even though he hadn't purchased the Firefly kit from them, they answered all his questions, returned all his calls, and kept in contact with him through out the whole building process! Al mentioned that he was intrigued by the new Kolb Firefly kits, because they can be built and flown in either a taildragger or tricycle gear configuration. When he set out to purchase his craft another requirement was that it had to be a true part 103 ultralight. He had owned and flown a Quicksilver MX but was not happy with it's high dihedryl and lack of crosswind control. The Firefly has true three axis control, cross country capability and yet can still be flown low and slow. It also doesn't require a pilot's license or a medical to be flown. The other attraction of course was the affordability! http://www.ultralightflyer.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © The Ultralight Flyer Video Magazine.
