Super Koala

The Super Koala

A steerable tail wheel and optional electric start are your first indications that flying the Super Koala is as easy as owning it. Optional brakes assist in shorter take-off and landing rolls.

Even at the slowest speeds, the Super Koala maintains the stable flight characteristics that make for safe, enjoyable flights. Large 8-foot ailerons provide confident roll control at high speeds, and stall speed is an enviable 32 mph.

While your engine takes you up at a 900 to 1400 feet per minute climb, it also emits a relatively low noise level, effectively reduced by Lord mounts, tuned exhaust and geared reduction drive.

The Two-Place Super Koala

The two-place Super Koala adds to the fun of flying by adding another seat for side-by-side two-passenger flight.

The comfortable cockpit with dual controls gives both passenger and pilot plenty of room. Choose a 52 or 64 horsepower Rotax engine for cruise speeds of 65-85 mph, allowing hands-off flying.

With the Fisher Super Koala, the standard for personal aircraft has been redefined, but not redesigned.

A strikingly faithful reproduction of one of the most popular aircraft ever built, the Super Koala can make the dream of owning a classic flying machine a reality.

Proven geodetic wood construction gives the SK its strength; proven Fisher ingenuity gives the plane its appeal. A totally enclosed cockpit provides plenty of room for the pilot, while economy of instrumentation and controls allow plenty of room for fun flying.

More classic-style aircraft hardware abounds: An aluminum strut braced main spar carrythrough, a ground adjustable horizontal stabilizer, 14-inch pneumatic tires with rubber shock cord, and removable cockpit panels for summer flight.
