Fisher FP-505 Skeeter


First flown in 1984, this light plane combines a high wing and an open cockpit, loosely based on the Pietenpol Air Camper. The pylon-mounted high wing leaves the cockpit essentially unenclosed, offering the pilot spectacular visibility and the freedom of an open cockpit design. Powered by a 40 horsepower Rotax, the FP-505 has shock-absorbing gear and geodetic construction.
By 2004 50 had been sold.
