Youngster V

The Youngster "V" was designed, based on the Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister, with all wood construction and short 350 build time. The cockpit accommodates up to 6'4" pilots. This airplane offers a four-cycle VW engine and a 2315 airfoil with stainless wires and a bubble canopy. Enjoy an open cockpit on warm summer days and a fully enclosed cockpit for the winter.
 
First flown in 1994, the V stands for VW and Rotax power is optional.
 
It was designed to be affordable, but with the high quality you’ve come to know of Fisher Flying Products. The Youngster is gentle on the ground, but allows you to play with it in the air. The Youngster employs all wood construction using a Warner truss frame with 1/8" birch ply skins in the fuselage. Stringers are placed along the fuselage sides and top turtledeck to form the fabric shaped fuselage.
 
1997 Youngster V kit price: US$3700. The Rotax powered kit sold for US$3400. Plans were US$200.
By 2004, ten had been sold.
 
2009 Youngster V kit price: US$8750
