Fisher Classic

Sharing the flight characteristics of the 404, the two-place version of the FP-404 also carrys a passenger. First flown in 1987, dual controls give you the option of front or back position, and an 85 mph cruise speed.
This amateur-built biplane aircraft is complete with minimal instruments and bare-necessity controls. Featuring short wings, four ailerons and a semisymmetrical airfoil, the aircraft answers commands instantaneously. Geodetic wood construction and additional bracing contribute to structural strength, enough to withstand higher Gs than most light planes. The wings detach for east storage.
For experimental models, a 64 horsepower Rotax engine provides enough power for an 800 feet-per-minute climb.
In 1997 the kit price was US$6775. The 1998 kit price was US$7392. By 2004, 150 had been sold.
