Congratulations to Dave - "ZIPPER" - for the completion of the first customer built Tricycle gear Saberwing.  It is a beautiful plane and reflects much of Dave's military service.   Thank you and     "WAY TO GO DAVE!"

Check out Dave's newest video!    First Passenger!

Dave's Saberwing is named K'fir and is painted in Israeli military drab.  He received his Airworthiness Certificate and has begun his test flights.  Pray for him as he progresses through this stage.  For more on K'fir look at Dave's Video.....BOLD AS A LION.

SABERWING TRICYCLE GEAR PROTOTYPE is also our demo unit as an LSA bird to learn what we need to do to keep our Saberwing within LSA limits.  With the 100 HP Spyder Engine we can cruise at 135 - just under LSA requirements.  Here is the plane before final trim is added.  

UPDATE 2021   -  The LSA Saberwing has completed its 40 hour test phase in "FLYING" colors.   It is an easy bird to fly and stays just at the top of LSA limits in our recomended build-up.  Order yours today!

   Videos will be coming soon - or check it out on FACEBOOK! 

       DARCY FREEMAN'S SABERWING             Just received it Airworthiness Certificate and is scheduled for first flights shortly.  Due to the flu, Bill has been unable to fly lately but will be back in the air soon.  Darcy's Saberwing is painted in a Blue Pearl with candy Blue accents on the tips and engine components.  There are still the multicolored acccent trims to come...keep checking in on his build progress videos.  A new one below..

 N203SW at Oshkosh 2018.   Larry did a great job  building his Saberwing.

     Larry purchased his Saberwing kit #003 from us aabout two years ago. He lived only 15 miles away from our airport allowed us to fine tune many of our products and information to help out existing and new builders.  Larry kept a very detailed builder's log that details out his journey very well.  Many of his photos are being used in manual updates.   His 750 hour commitment has proven itself.   This was his total build time to date.  We initially estimated the build time of the kit (minus the 5 "P"s  - prop, panel, paint, powerplant and 'polstery) at 500-1000 hours.  It seems we were very reasonable with the time calculations.  Of course some people may spend much more time but it can be done in a year.

The Prototype N120SW and Larry's N203SW flew together to Oshkosh in 2018.  He went to meet the Lord this past December.   But as Larry would say...."Keep moving forward with joy....God's got this!"

NEW PRODUCTS FOCUS PAGE!

We will be focusing on one of our products as we update our products pages.   There will be descriptions, updates, and information that will help you understand our products better.    This week we will focus on DISTRIBUTORS!

Turbocharging the Saberwing...

   We started working on a turbocharger package for our Spyder Engine Conversions a few months ago and have completed about 120 hours of flight testing to date.   We have seen a significant improvement in the climb and cruise performance of the Saberwing. Full details will be coming shortly.  Check out the videos on our facebook page for some fun turbo stuff...   Here is a sample video...https://youtu.be/I8Zmi0UFS6k

UPDATE:  2-20-2019 - We have been flying our turbo setup for two years now and about 250 hours.  We are currently breaking down the engine partway to do an inspection of the heads/pistons/cylinders and part of the bottom end to see how the parts are holding up.  So far everything looks like normal wear and other than an early ring issue on one piston all has held up well.  The plan is to reassemble everything and contiue flying the engine another 250 hours before another check.  Turbos can be harder on engines and we would like to see where we can improve or modify to have a dependable powerplant.

The BASICS of SIMPLICITY

How?  Find new ways to use old ideas that are proven.   Learn from those who have gone before and bring to market products that are easy to use, cost effective and reliable.

Why?  If you don't have it, it won't break!"   Simplicity allows for less parts count, better reliability and lower cost for purchasing and maintenance.   This becomes apparent as you learn about our product line.

What?  Our Products are currently focused on our SPYDER series of engines that will be continually upgraded.  We service and provide parts for these engines.  For installation purposes we have developed Firewall Forward Kits and components for some common aircraft kits currently on the market.  We provide engine components and information for the "do it yourself" experimental Corvair engine builder. Aircraft kit components  (gear, wing skins, wing tanks, and more) will become available soon.
