Bearcat


The Bearcat kit was a Baby Ace replica, with full 3 axis controls with a floor mounted joy stick and rudder pedals. Incorporating a 4130 chromolly welded fuselage, a fully cowled engine, and dual surface wings and fuselage, covered with dacron sail cloth.

Optional equipment includes electric starter, ballistic parachute, hydralic disc brakes, and the Rotax 503 2V 53 hp engine. Equipped with shoulder and lap belts, bungee shock landing gear, and a 360 degree roll-cage cockpit construction, the kit major components are pre-welded, machined, sewn, cut and bent, while the fabric slips on components and laces up, no doping required.

The Bearcat is basically a high wing mono configuration, tractor mounted engine, amateur-built aircraft with an all steel 4130 chromolly fuselage frame. The welded fuselage is designed to accommodate all other components by a series of tabsto which the components are bolted.
The wing is a simple ladder construction with strong internal diagonal bracing. This configuration has supported over +6 and -4 G in static load testing. Aluminum ribs placed in upper and lower pockets in the dacron covering shape the airfoil.
