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.
