Fisher Classic

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 Classic

Sharing the responsive flight characteristics of the 404, the two-place Classic also lets you share the experience with a passenger. Dual controls give you the option of front or back position, and an 85 mph cruise speed gives you just plain fun.

The two-place Classic represents a reborn era in airborne adventure. This bi-plane aircraft is a throw-back to seat-of-the-pants flying, complete with minimal instruments and bare-necessity controls. The sports car of light-planes, the Classic is a flying experience that will leave you flying.

Featuring short wings, four ailerons and a semi-symmetrical airfoil, the aircraft answers commands instantaneously. Geodetic wood construction and additional bracing contribute to exceptional structural strength, enough to withstand higher Gs than most light planes.

For experimental models, a 64 horsepower Rotax engine pours out more than enough power for exhilarating, 800 feet-per-minute climbs and turns that will push you and your passenger back in your seats. The plane is as responsive as you are aggressive.
