Based on the Pietenpol Aircamper, Andy Fairhall built all the woodword, metal fittings, and deigned and carved the propeller.
The Fairhall Special features a lengthened wingspan and the cabane struts were moved slightly outward and angled. Andy added a spring steel undercarriage and steerable tailwheel.
First flown in 1997, the Special is a Class 2 microlight with a MTOW of 453 kg.
The Special is powered by a Toyota 4Y Hilux engine of 80 hp and runs mainly on Avgas, giving a three hour endurance. The water cooling allows a ducted hot air system from the radiator to heat the cockpit.
