Father, we thank you, especially for letting me fly this flight, for the privilege of being able to be in this position, to be in this wondrous place, seeing all these many startling, wonderful things that you have created.

Three-Section Wings

To allow building in a small garage or workshop, Steen Aero has introduced a three-section upper wing system for Skybolts. The new three-section upper wing was designed by Mr. Pitts, and is a three-piece 'Stearman' style design with a center section and removable wing panels. The benefits are many -

  • No more 24 foot wing to maneuver in a 2-car garage! The wing system is much easier to construct. The wing table is now half the size! No waiting for a friend to arrive to help you move the wing.

  • The upper wing can be de-mated in the field, making overland and sea transport much easier. A Skybolt with the new wing will easily fit into a "short" shipping container. Need to trailer your aircraft or project to the airport?

  • The center section allows a wing tank of 18 gallons. Great for cross-country and saving your fuel for the aerobatic box.

  • The new wing system is considerably stronger. The outer panels have a much shorter spar span, anchored at the ends of the Stearman style cabane.

    Retrofits and Rebuilds

    The three-section wing technology is adaptable to earlier Skybolts. The system can be incorporated into projects already underway or retrofitted onto an existing airplane during rebuild and recovering. A quality (one-piece) wing set can be reworked into the three-section wing system. See FAQs for more details.
