Super STOL Bush Plane

RADICAL

The radical Aircraft is a culmination of 32 years of Aircraft design and building experience.  This design is a very roomy 2+2 aircraft. Even the largest of pilots will find they have plenty of head, leg and shoulder room.  The two large up swinging doors make it easy for even the less mobile to enter.  Side by side seating leaves a cavernous space behind the seats available for load carrying, so large in fact that two can sleep comfortably on the double floor, standard equipment on the Radical.

The ``Mini Beaver``

MOOSE

Versatility: the ability to adapt easily. Murphy Aircraft’s SR3500 Moose aircraft was designed with versatility foremost in mind. Seating for four is standard and adding the optional rear jump seats increases seating to six (US models only). With four seats in place, there is ample room for two tents, coolers, chairs and camping gear for four. Engine options range from the Lycoming O-540 series of engines to the 9-cylinder, 360 hp. M-14P radial engine. No lacking power here! A true workhorse, the Murphy Moose is the perfect STOL aircraft capable of operating from any surface on wheels, floats or skis. A perfect project for the first time builder with a big family or big ambitions!

MAVERICK

In many ways the Maverick is a scaled-down Rebel… an ultralight aircraft with a big plane feel to it. Building a Maverick is probably a whole lot easier, quicker, and more economical than you think. You do not need any special skills or any materials beyond what you can order for a kit. We’ve even covered all the logical options so you can get it all at once… from one source. If you have access to the space of a one-car garage, and some common hand tools, you can start building. Even with no experience in fabric covering, you will skin the wings and tail surprisingly easily with the help of a household iron and a paintbrush. If you’re willing to give it your spare time attention on a steady basis, you’ll be in the air in less than a year.

Aerobatic Ultralight Biplane

RENEGADE

If your preference is for the classic look, but you’d also like some modern performance numbers, the Renegade may be perfect. If you think you would enjoy following rivers in an open cockpit airplane and throwing yourself through an occasional loop or roll, the Renegade should be perfect. If you want a rugged biplane that goes together quickly, costs less than any other aerobatic biplane kit out there, and that has proven itself in the hands of hundreds of other builders, then the Renegade is perfect! The open cockpit biplane has a certain nostalgic eye appealing quality which is reflected in the Renegade Spirit.
