Overview

Few light airplanes offer builders the simplicity and payoff in fun flying that comes with the Pixie. Another superb design by founding president of the Experimental Aircraft Association, Paul Poberezny. Similar in many respects to the Heath Parasol, the Pixie is a modernization of the helmet and goggle days of the 1930ís. The large wing and full span ailerons make for easy flying. With minimal taildragger experience, the Pixie is a breeze to handle on the ground. Landings are gentle affairs, visibility in cruise is outstanding and using it with skis adds another dimension of fun. The fuselage is 4130 steel tube, wings are Sitka spruce, covering is with Stits Poly-fiber. This is a beginnerís project for construction, with performance that will satisfy any level of proficiency ...up to ATP! Plans are highly detailed and the cost level is low. Can be powered with a VW conversion or Continental A-65. It cruises at 83 mph, stalls at 30, and climbs at 500 fpm. The Pixie has a no-reserve range of 290 miles with and empty weight of 543 pounds, gross is 900.

An info pack is $10.50, plans are $125.00 and both can be ordered from
