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.
