Sawyer Skyjacker II

sawyer-sjack2

 

Sawyer’s objective for constructing this vehicle, N7317, was to prove the stability, controllability and capability of such a radical, low-aspect-ratio aircraft. The size for this type of aircraft is unlimited due to the nature of its lifting body design. The Skyjacker is cheap to build because there are no compound curves, highly stressed areas or complex control systems. The design will not stall or spin and has no rudders. First flying on 3 July 1975, the Sky­jacker was not marketed as a sporting aircraft, but is, a two-seat experimental research vehicle of all-metal construction.
