This plane is a structurally simple and easy-to-fly airplane designed to the requirements of the Experimental Aircraft Association for home construction and storage in a space 7’ x 8’ x 20’, which is equivalent to the standard home garage. Great emphasis has been placed upon safe flight characteristics and good low-speed performance for takeoff and landing at some sacrifice of high speed. Complete instructions for building the Fly Baby can be found in EAA Sport Aviation magazine, January 1963 through September 1964. EAA members may download these articles free through the EAA Archive web page. For more information, see http://www.bowersflybaby.com
The structure has been designed for standard airplane engines from 65 to 85 horsepower and the aerodynamic features are of sizes and proportions suited to obtaining the best all-around performance in this power range. Because of this, there is not enough advantage to be gained from using engines of significantly higher power to offset the cost and weight penalties. Increasing the power to increase the aerobatic capability is not recommended. The plane can be built both as a biplane and as a monoplane.
