FP-303

Designed to be as portable as possible, the wings are easily folded back to rest on the cantilevered horizontal stabilizer. Field assembly time is less than 10 minutes. Once ready to fly, positive steering on the ground is matched by positively magnificent performance in the air. Take-off roll is a scant 100 feet, with climb rate an impressive 800 feet per minute.

In the 303, visibility is always good. The cockpit is situated slightly forward of the wing’s leading edge, giving you a clear view of what’s above, around and below.

Building the 303

The FP-303 is easy for even the first-time builder to assemble his flying machine. The builder simply glues the pre-cut and slotted pieces together with epoxy over the full-scale plans. Using common household tools, the average builder can be airborne in as little as 300 hours.

Affordability & Flyability Are Within Anyone’s Capability

When Fisher’s chief aeronautical engineer accepted the task of building a light plane that was inexpensive, yet a joy to fly, the results were simply amazing.

With its open cockpit and compact form, the FP-303 is wind-in-your-face flying that will take your breath away. The 303’s controls acknowledge your commands quickly and accurately. Geodetic wood construction ensures the aircraft is solid without feeling heavy, reliable without being burdensome, affordable without sacrificing safety and performance.
