The Hitchiker is the third ultralight design from Robert Labahn and it is designed for cross-country and short field operations. With a rigid wooden wing sporting full span flaperons having both positive and negative selling, the light weight Hitchiker easily fits the bill. The pilot’s seating is reclining, glider like, to present the smallest possible frontal area. A streamlined pod will be fitted in the colder months for pilot protection.
