Fisher Youngster

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 Youngster

This airplane offers you four-cycle dependability with the pleasure of flying a light, agile performer. The Youngster flies on the time proven 2315 airfoil with stainless wires and a bubble canopy. Enjoy the freedom of an open cockpit on warm summer days, and the warmth of a fully enclosed cockpit for comfortable flying in the winter.

Experience the nostalgic beauty of the Youngster.
It was designed to be affordable, but with the high quality you’ve come to know of Fisher Flying Products. The Youngster is gentle on the ground, but allows you to play with it in the air. The Youngster employs all wood construction using a Warner truss frame with 1/8" birch ply skins making the lightest, strongest fuselage available. Stringers are carefully placed along the fuselage sides and top turtledeck to form the attractive fabric shaped fuselage.
