Fisher Horizon 1
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 Horizon 1
The Horizon provides true STOL performance, good slow speed
stability and a startling climb rate. It can carry a payload equal
to its weight and is an excellent platform for lightweight floats or
skis. You’ll find a large, roomy cockpit, tandem seating, optional
two-cycle or four-cycle engines and a one man, two-minute wing fold
Picture yourself in a shiny new airplane that has the feel, flight
characteristics and styling of a classic machine.
This lightweight wonder will out perform a classic airplane in
virtually every category and can be operated for only a fraction of
its cost. The Horizon is a sturdy airplane with more horsepower than
the Piper Cub, but with only a portion of its empty weight. Just
imagine the fun you’ll have flying this beauty.
