KIS TD


The Pulsar and Pulsar XP were designed by Mark Brown and offer great lightplane performance and economy in kit cost and operating expenses. These very popular kits are available in tailwheel or nosewheel configurations, and are easy to build and fly. Equipped with fuel tanks in the wings, a composite spar and moulded wing skins, earlier models had a 1.5mm Finnish birch plywood/outer fibreglass matting covering foam ribs. Pulsar XP includes an in flight adjustable prop pitch option which increases 75% power cruise from 140 mph to 150 mph at 4 USG/hr, and was specifically designed for the Rotax 912.

In 1996 the manufacturing rights for the Pulsar went from Aero Design to Skystar, which was then sold to become Pulsar Aircraft Corp. Pulsar Aircraft Corp. rescuing the Pulsar design from the original company's bankruptcy. Pulsar Aircraft Corporation also keep the original legacy Pulsar design alive under the name of Pulsar XP.Aircraft Spruce was a supplier of materials & components to Skystar for use in Pulsar kits.Designed by Mark Brown and Solly Melyon around the same lines as the Pulsar XP, the Super Pulsar 100 was introduced by Pulsar Aircraft Corporation in August 2001. A high performance sport airplane capable of cruising at speeds over 200 mph but yet docile and safe for low time pilots. Its 2500 fpm climb will leave you breathless and it's docile and slow flight stabilitylets you land on short fields. The Super Pulsar was equipped with 38 gallon fuel capacity for seven hours of endurance and 1250 mile range.

High Tech Composites (HTC) in Oxnard, California, USA, owned by Rich Trickle, produced composite structures for other aircraft manufactures before Rich designed the two-seat KIS TR-1 (KIS stands for "Keep It Simple"). Constructed with the assistance of Vance Jaqua and Martin Hollmann, the aircraft was first presented at the EAA event at Oskosh, Wisconsin, in July 1991.Subsequently HTC was renamed Tri-R Technologies and the composite kit plane was marketed to the homebuilt constructor. It could be fitted with a nose-wheel or tail-wheel landing gear, an 80 to 150 hp engine could be fitted, and for storage, the wings could be detached easily. The four-seat KIS Cruiser was also developed.

In 2001 the Pulsar Aircraft Company (formed in 1999) acquired the design and production rights of Tri-R, while the latter still produced the composite parts. The two-seat KIS TR-1 was re-designated Pulsar 150, while the KIS TR-4 Cruiser became the Pulsar Super Cruiser. In 2005 all aircraft production was transferred to Ilopango, El Salvador.
The KIS TD is the tail wheel version of TR-1, first flown in 1992.
