EAA Pee Wee

Single-seat single-engined biplane with conventional three-axis control. Conventional tail. Control inputs through stick for pitch/roll and pedals for yaw. Wings braced by struts. Undercarriage has three wheels in tail-dragger formation. Aluminium-tube framework, with optional pod. Engine mounted between wings driving tractor propeller.
Named Pee Wee after an early lightweight aircraft developed by Joe Kirk, one of EAA's directors in the '50s and '60s, the Pee Wee machine is a tractor biplane powered by a KFM opposed-twin engine with electric start. The design allows a pod to be incorporated, so that if the builder wishes he or she can take advantage of the engine heat to warm the feet.

The Princeton Sailwing shape is used in the wing construction and, as befits a biplane, a tail-dragger undercarriage is fitted.

Engine: KFM 107.
Empty weight 220 lb, 100 kg.
