Bearhawk Kits

 If you are considering building your own Bearhawk. We’re here to encourage you with a variety of options. Of course, you can simply purchase the plans and begin scrounging for raw materials. Or you can purchase some sub-kits or components from us. We welcome any and all Bearhawk builders into the fold. However, if you think you want to scratch build we recommend that you talk to builders that have gone before you. Nearly all will tell you to purchase our QB kit. Save yourself 1000s of hours of work and fly years sooner. We believe that even craftsmen and machinists benefit from building from our Quick-Build kit. (There’s still a lot of enjoyable work to accomplish.)
However you intend to build your Bearhawk, get started now! 
 
 
 
This photo shows the contents of the complete Bearhawk QB Kit (with optional axillary tanks).
 

Here are the prices and contents of our kits and components:

QUICK BUILD KIT    $41,500
 
The Quick-Build Kit is on the FAA 51% approved kit list.
Because the airframe is largely fabric covered and because of the way the FAA constructs its definition of the 51% rule, we are able to complete the entire structure so there is no actual structural fabrication to be done other than completing the riveting of the top skin. This is left partially open so the builder can access and install certain components.
Although all of the wing control surfaces are almost ready to be installed, the builder must install the hinges first and then install them, which is part of the 51% program. The same thing is true of the tail, landing gear, control system, etc: the components are finished but must be installed. Assembly and installation not fabrication.
The Quick-Build does not include windshield, tires and brakes, covering/painting materials, seats, upholstery kits, cables, pulleys and hardware.
