Fisher Horizon 2
 
 
fisher-hori-2

First flown in 1991, the amateur-built Horizon 2 was inspired by the O-1 Bird Dog and designed with the larger pilot in mind, so the cockpit has ample room for a 6'6" person weighing 280 pounds and the tandem seating. Thirty had been sold by 2004. The wing of the Horizon 2 features a modified GA (W)-2 airfoil combined with slotted flaps and ailerons, giving the plane more control and less drag at all airspeeds. The wing is a quick-folding wing for storage.
 

Fish-Horizon2-3

 

The Horizon 2 is only similar to the Horizon 1 in that they are both tandem, two place, high wing aircraft, but that's where the similarity ends. The Horizon 2 has a uniquely shaped fuselage, which gives it a cleaner, more efficient aerodynamic design accounting for the 20 mph increase in cruise speed over the Horizon 1. The aerodynamic design also allows a 360 degree field of vision.
 
Kits were available for US$7500 and plans sold for US$350 in 1997.
