Brokaw BJ-520 Bullet

brokawbullet


Dr. D.F. Brokaw, with the aeronautical engineering help of Dr. Ernest R. Jones, has developed a high-speed homebuilt with good cross country capability, comfortable seating for two in tandem fashion, retractable gear, full FR capability and the ability to perform aerobatics. While the prototype took Brokaw seven years to build, off-spring can be built in about three years working from plans. The original powerplant was a 285-hp Continental, but the most common options are a 310-hp Continental or the 380-hp Lycoming turning a Sensenich three-blade propeller. The fuselage, wings, tail and all control surfaces are built from light alloy, while the tricycle landing gear are retractable. Stressed to 6G for aerobatics, with 322 mph top speed and a service ceiling of 28,000 feet, the Bullet ranks as a high performance homebuilt.
