Fisher Celebrity

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 Celebrity

The Celebrity handles well. The takeoff is short, even when it’s loaded with fuel and passenger. The normal takeoff will vary with your choice of engine, but the prototype with 65 horsepower gets off the ground in 300 feet. The latest factory demo gets off the ground in about 250 feet using a C-90-100 horsepower. On a warm day, when density altitude can reach the 2,500 foot range, you can still have a short takeoff roll and an excellent rate of climb.

If you like the thrill of open cockpit flying, you’ll enjoy flying the Celebrity. The control inputs are light, and response is immediate. The Celebrity has great handling qualities; it’s known for its control and harmony. This is a special plane for the pilot who appreciates the low and slow joy of flying.
