1984: Squadron Aviation, a Columbus, Ohio firm, has produced three historic replica aircraft (the SPAD X111, the Fokker D-VII and the British SE5a) within the limits set for ultralights.
Squadron Aviation's three ultralights not only look like full-fledged airplanes, but are also close replicas of exciting historical craft, the company says. Involved in the design and manufacture of these airplanes were Bill MciDermitt, president, and Lew Parsley, vice-president. Mark Savage, a 16,000-hour veteran, is test pilot and marketing manager.
Squadron Aviation, P.O. Box 23276, Columbus, Ohio 43223, is producing kits for these aircraft for less than $7,000 and complete flyaway aircraft for less than $10,000.
