Bill Warwick built his third plane, the Bantam, first flying in 1966. The first Bantam, N2258B, first flew in June 1966.
 
Designed for simple fabrication, the Bantam uses no com­pound curves and very few simple ones. The cockpit area is a steel tube structure taking all wing, gear and engine mount loads. The steerable front wheel has a spring leaf shock absorber. The remaining is wood construction with a plywood cover.
