Fisher FP 505
Well established Fisher Flying
Products has reproduced the flying qualities of many classic
airplanes in structurally sound and extremely affordable aircraft.
These ultra light and experimental aircraft have proven aerodynamic
stability and desirable flight characteristics.
From the company’s modern plant in Edgeley, North Dakota, the
components for 15 classic replicas are manufactured by trained and
experienced craftsmen. Research and development for new aircraft is
on-going. Fisher Flying Products’ entire line of aircraft is sold
throughout the United States and in 30 foreign countries.
All models are available in two build-it-yourself forms:
A standard construction kit, which offers the builder the experience
of assembling the entire aircraft from pre-cut, shaped and slotted
wooden pieces, machined hardware, a formed fibreglass cowling and
aluminium fuel tank.
A quick-build kit which contains a number of pre-fabricated
components in addition to the standard pre-cut and formed parts
found in the standard kit.
Both kits come complete with easy-to-follow instructions and the
industry’s finest full scale-full size blueprints. These blueprints
allow the builder to essentially build the aircraft right on top of
the blueprints with standard household tools.
Standard construction kits can be completed by the average builder
in 400–500 hours and quick-build kits reduce the construction time
to 200–300 hours.
Flying the FP-505 Skeeter
Once you are in the cockpit of the FP-505, you can’t wait to get
into the air. In a short distance of 150 feet you are air-borne and
climbing at 800 feet per minute. With the wings above you, the
visibility is excellent, and you’re rewarded with a clear view of
what’s around and below you. Even at the slowest speed, the FP-505
maintains the flight characteristics that make for safe, enjoyable
flying. Optional brakes assist in shorter take-off and landing
