Acro Sport Inc Pober Pixie


pober-pixie


The single-seat Pober Pixie is another homebuilt designed by Paul Poberezny. It originally started as an effort to help pilots beat high operational costs and was designated Project Econoplane in 1974. Inspired by a Heath Parasol LN, the Pixie is a parasol monoplane powered by a Limbach VW engine rated at 50 to 75 hp. Full-span ailerons give excellent roll with little yaw on entry and recovery. This is a beginner’s project for construction, with highly detailed plans, and the cost level is low. Can be powered with a VW conversion or Continental A-65.

The fuselage is 4130 steel tube, wings are Sitka spruce, covering is with Stits Poly-fiber.
