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 Dakota Hawk
The Dakota Hawk is undaunted by demanding pilots, high-performance
flight, or cross-country trips.
Dual controls are an appreciated feature, and yield crisp and firm
command of the aircraft. Equipped with a steerable tail wheel, main
gear shock absorbers and available hydraulic brakes, the Hawk is
accordingly loyal on take off and landing.
The I Beam wing spar and sturdy construction maintain stability and
pilot confidence under the most extreme flight conditions.
The 550 lb. useful load, coupled with space for added
instrumentation, avionics and optional wing tanks, make the Hawk an
especially agreeable choice for cross-country flight.
The Hawk’s folding wings are engineered with a simple yet secure
locking mechanism, making set-up or take-down a 15-minute step.
Wings outstretched, the Dakota Hawk owns larger dimensions than any
other Fisher model. A broadened fuselage generates a wider, roomier
cabin, with space for two adults and a cargo of overnight baggage.
The engine quarters also reflect the needs of an ample occupant. The
Dakota Hawk is designed for a 4-stroke engine, accepting the likes
of a 65, 85, 0-200 Continental, 912 & 912S Rotax or 6 cyl. Jabiru.
Properly equipped, the Hawk’s cruise speed will register over 95
Load and performance ratings benefit from an augmented main wing
spar, unsparingly sturdy materials, and proven geodetic construction
throughout. A contoured vented cowling, high stance landing gear and
available wheel pants contribute to the craft’s stylish posture.
