Acro-Sport 2 (Starduster)

The Acrosport is a plans built aircraft that was designed by Paul Poberezny to provide an aerobatic platform while maintaining the polite manners necessary for cross country flying and safe landings. The Acrosport comes in single place and two place varieties.

This versatile biplane offers the outstanding opportunity to experience open cockpit flying with a friend. Excellent aerobatic trainer with responsive controls and docile straight and level flight characteristics. Powerplants can range from 108 hp to 200 hp. Cruise at 123 mph (180 hp), stall at 53 and max out at 152. The wide gear, large wheels and outstanding roll rate make the Acro Sport a dream on the ground, nimble in the air and a cinch for smooth landings. The Acro II will accommodate pilots up to 6' 6" and 240 pounds. As with all Acro Sport projects, the fuselage is welded steel tube, wings are spruce and Stits Poly-fibre is used for covering.
