dapuzzosenior


The aerobatic Senior Aero Sport is available as either a single or two-seater. One example is the grand champion homebuilt at the 1968 EM fly-in at Rockford, Illinois. This sport biplane has a wood-faired steel tube fuselage, wire-braced steel tube tail section, all fabric covered. The fuel supply and the front seat passenger are very close to the center of gravity, so trim is little affected by expending fuel or by the presence or absence of a passenger. A variety of engines can be used from 190 to 260 hp.
