Classic

Sharing the responsive flight characteristics of the FP-404, the two-place Classic lets you share the experience with a passenger. Dual controls give you the option of front or back position, and an 85 mph cruise speed gives you just plain fun.

The two-place Classic represents a reborn era in airborne adventure. This bi-plane aircraft is a throw-back to seat-of-the-pants flying, complete with minimal instruments and bare-necessity controls. The sports car of light-planes, the Classic is a flying experience that will leave you flying.

Featuring short wings, four ailerons and a semi-symmetrical airfoil, the aircraft answers commands instantaneously. Geodetic wood construction and additional bracing contribute to exceptional structural strength, enough to withstand higher Gs than most light planes.

For experimental models, a 65 horsepower Rotax engine pours out more than enough power for exhilarating, 800 feet-per-minute climbs and turns that will push you and your passenger back in your seats. The plane is as responsive as you are aggressive.
