Mirage Aircraft Celerity


The Celerity was designed by Larry Burton, who flew the prototype in 1985 and won an Oshkosh workmanship award that same year. The prototype has accumulated over 900 hours. It is designed to be built by the average person, with average skills, at low cost, yet perform as well as the most expensive kit airplanes in it's class.

The Celerity is a high performance, 2-place side-by-side plans built airplane with fully retractable landing gear, including the tail wheel. It can also be built as the "Marathon" with fixed tricycle gear. Designed for builders with average skills, both aircraft are constructed from wood with fiberglass covering. Six construction videos were available. Celerity cruises in the 200 mph range on 150 to 180 hp and has an operating range of more than 750 miles with fuel reserve. The builder has the choice of carrying all the fuel in the wing, or sleek tip tanks can be installed.

Complete landing gear assemblies and other finished components were available from Mirage Aircraft.
