Customer Testimonials

"Handling qualities were adequate for all unlimited category aerobatic maneuvers with no vices being evident..."

"The Skybolt was found to be structurally adequate for aerobatic flight within the flight envelope and weight and balance limitations provided by the manufacturer with engines up to 260hp... There was no tendency of any part of the aircraft towards flutter nor was there any tendency towards a short period oscillation... The aircraft envelope was demonstrated to +6.5 and -3 G indicated with snap roll maneuvers performed up to + 5 G. The 5 G snap maneuver when interpreting FAR 23 A23-9 translates to 6.7 G on an outer wing panel and would allow unlimited class aerobatics... Handling qualities were adequate for all unlimited category aerobatic maneuvers with no vices being evident."
