Youngster

This airplane offers you four-cycle dependability with the pleasure of flying a light, agile performer. The Youngster flies on the time proven 2315 airfoil with stainless wires and a bubble canopy. Enjoy the freedom of an open cockpit on warm summer days, and the warmth of a fully enclosed cockpit for comfortable flying in the winter.

Experience the nostalgic beauty of the Youngster.

It was designed to be affordable, but with the high quality you’ve come to know of Fisher Flying Products. The Youngster is gentle on the ground, but allows you to play with it in the air. The Youngster employs all wood construction using a Warner truss frame with 1/8″ birch ply skins making the lightest, strongest fuselage available. Stringers are carefully placed along the fuselage sides and top turtledeck to form the attractive fabric shaped fuselage.
