Ernie's Skybolt

  • Print

Ernie's Skybolt is classified as an experimental aircraft. Ernie is building the plane from plans that were created by Wendell Hostatler. The balsa was all laser cut by National Balsa of Ware, MA. The cowl and wheel pans were made by Fiberglass Specialty in Garfield, AR. The landing gear was custom made by Abell RC.

The wing span on this plane is 76 1/2" and the plane is powered by a BME 50cc gas engine. Ernie plans on painting the plane tan with blue trim and gold lettering. The flying weight is estimated at around 25 lbs. Hopefully we will see the plane in the air over the summer.
