Summit PPC Summit SS
In 1999, at the Sun n Fun airshow in Florida, the Summit II made its debut.
The two seat placement has separate seats and a single fuselage tube had every attach point triangulated. A slider foot control system is for canopy steering, and stainless steel rails around the pilot and passenger provide protection. A four point pick up system for the risers provides control against any pendulum affect. All the kits were anodized.
The landing gear was designed to be back under the engine so that in the event of a hard landing, the wheels would touch first, not the protective propeller guard.
