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 system.

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.
