The Sportsman


The Sportsman is the Ultimate Adventure Aircraft. It was designed for the pilot who rejects compromise, whose flying missions are diverse and demanding, and whose airplane had better be ready to go anywhere, anytime. The Sportsman is the only four-place general aviation aircraft on the market that is a tail-dragger, trike, float ready, wing folding, trailerable, high-utility aircraft, all rolled into 1!
