Fisher Dakota Hawk

First flown in 1993, the Dakota Hawk was based on a design by Erval Jackson. Equipped with dual controls, a steerable tail wheel, main gear shock absorbers and available are hydraulic brakes.
The I Beam wing spar and construction gives a 550 lb useful load, coupled with space for added instrumentation, avionics and optional wing tanks, make the Hawk agreeable choice for cross-country flight.
The Hawk’s folding wings are engineered with a simple yet secure locking mechanism, making set-up or take-down a 15-minute step.
Wings outstretched, the Dakota Hawk owns larger dimensions than any other Fisher model. A broadened fuselage generates a wider, roomier cabin, with space for two adults and a cargo of overnight baggage.
The Dakota Hawk is designed for a 4-stroke engine, accepting the likes of a 65, 85, 0-200 Continental, 912 & 912S Rotax or 6 cyl. Jabiru. Properly equipped, the Hawk’s cruise speed will register over 95 mph.
Load and performance ratings benefit from an augmented main wing spar, and proven geodetic construction throughout. A contoured vented cowling, high stance landing gear and available wheel pants contribute to the craft’s posture.
The kitprice in 1997 was US$9,300. By 2001, the standard kit cost US$10,500 with a quick build kit available for an additional US$2000.
By 2004, twenty-five had been sold.
