I grew up in Iowa right across the cornfield from the airport, so I got to see planes taking off and landing every night. I used to go to sleep with my window open just looking at that.

Customer Testimonials

"The Skybolt is a great airplane with no nasty habits and is very easy to fly..."

"Are Skybolt builders happy with their projects? We wrote to several and found out that the design is alive, well and flying both for fun and profit; several builders are using Skybolts in airshows... "I'd never built anything in my life - not even a model airplane," said Ned Crowley. "The project took 3000 hours and $24,000. Now that Hale Wallace has the company, the support has been fantastic." Earl Buchannan, WWII Navy pilot, says the stall characteristics of this airplane are exceptional, a real honest airplane with excellent ground handling characteristics. Jim Crunkleton says the Skybolt is a great airplane with no nasty habits and is very easy to fly."
