[Airline] Pilots used to carry small toolkits in their flight bags so they could tighten the odd screw or fix something in the galley for the girls. We can't anymore because the TSA boys think we might hijack ourselves with our adjustable wrenches.

Customer Testimonials

"The Skybolt is a better airplane all around..."

"[The Skybolt has] excellent roll rate and good control balance... It was in slow flight that I came to appreciate the airplane... Aerobatics were excellent, what really impressed me was the vertical performance, almost 1000 ft with more than enough time for a vertical roll... The Skybolt lands slow and easy with little tendency to swerve... How does the Skybolt compare with other aerobatic biplanes? The Skybolt is a better airplane all around. It has much better slow speed characteristics and it is truly easy to land. The Skybolt has twice the roll rate of the Decathlon, Starduster II or Great Lakes and you don't give yourself a hernia to get it."

by John Conrad
Sport Pilot, December 1989
