Executing the "Touch and Go" maneuver is not a problem, I'm told, once you get the knack. Well, neither is performing one of Tchaikovsky's symphonies on the banjo, once you get the knack.

Customer Testimonials

"That's the great thing about a Skybolt - it can encompass broader desires than any other type..."

"Many people compare the Skybolt to a Pitts since they are both biplanes. Granted, the Pitts is a fine airplane to be compared to, however the Skybolt has far more variety in the examples built. Each one is customized to satisfy the needs of the owner. That's the great thing about a Skybolt - it can encompass broader desires than any other type. It will carry two people and 150 lbs of air show supplies cross country at 185 MPH. Once unloaded at the show, it will entertain thousands of people by performing the most difficult modern maneuvers such as Harrier Passes, Vertical 4-Point rolls, Lomcevaks and loops with the top half in knife-edge. The Skybolt has all the qualities pilots appreciate - it's comfortable, tough, durable, attractive and yet forgiving. All this and it will out-turn a Sukhoi SU-26/29, Extra 300, Yak 55, Edge 540 or Pitts S2-B/C (in case you get a hankering to do some friendly dog-fighting). Given these capabilities, a properly configured Skybolt clearly has many advantages over a number of airplanes (including the Pitts)."
