The Highlander is a versatile aircraft with great performance capabilities. The cockpit is 44″ wide with lots of headroom and over 30 cu. ft. of cargo area. The plane has adjustable seats and there is plenty of cargo room to haul everything you need for that hunting, fishing or cross country trip. Planes may be fitted with floats as an amphib, with wheels, or skiis for winter use. This aircraft is very affordable and with the proper maintenance will last you a lifetime. Combine these features with the new Light Sport Pilot license and you too can enjoy the thrill of flying your own airplane!

“I like bush planes, but I don’t like planes that break in the bush. Walking out is not fun. My goal, and I think I have achieved it, was to build a rugged bush plane that will not break in the back country”
