WHY
KITFOX?

The Kitfox offers a unique combination of performance, reliability and handling.  Specifically designed for the backcountry by an aeronautical engineer, the Kitfox Series 7 Super Sport cruises up to 130 mph with 5 hours of endurance, yet lands and takes off in 300′.  With a design & tested gross weight of 1550# (6+/-3 G’s) – useful load averages 750# and the wide CG envelope allows for 150# in the baggage compartment.  If needed, to allow for sport pilots, the definition of Light Sport can be met by registering @ 1320# GW.
The Kitfox offers: side by side seating with bubble doors for excellent visibility, folding wings to minimize storage or transportation around-the-world, and convertible landing gear (tailwheel/nose wheel).  All making the Kitfox as fun to fly, as it is functional.

Come train with us and experience this quality-built, beautifully-handling, American-made aircraft for yourself.
