Fisher Horizon 2

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 2

The Horizon 2 was designed with the larger pilot in mind, so the cockpit has ample room for a 6'6" person weighing 280 pounds. The tandem seating arrangement eliminates the cheek to cheek seating in most other two-place aircraft. The wing of the Horizon 2 features a modified GA (W)-2 airfoil combined with slotted flaps and ailerons, giving the plane more control and less drag at all airspeeds. The wing is a quick-folding wing allowing the HORIZON 2 to be stored in a small place.

You were so pleased with the Horizon 1, we introduced the Horizon 2, but they are two totally different planes.

The Horizon 2 is only similar to the Horizon 1 in that they are both tandem, two place, high wing aircraft, but that's where the similarity ends. The Horizon 2 has a uniquely shaped fuselage, which gives it a cleaner, more efficient aerodynamic design accounting for the 20 mph increase in cruise speed over the Horizon 1. The aerodynamic design also allows an unusual 360 degree field of vision allowing the pilot a breathtaking view.
