The Builder’s Assistance
Manual is available in Adobe PDF format in 5 parts.
Download all five to get the entire manual.
This legacy build manual was written in 2007. MANY things have changed in the kits since then including the changes made when we started making the Model B four place kits with different wings. This manual is not intended to be followed 100% when building the kit. There are other resources available to builders much more up to date and applicable to current production kits. We leave this manual available as a reference for builders and also for interested pilots to get a general idea how the kits go together.
“The Bearhawk Magazine was a one time effort to publish a high quality magazine with lots of information about the Bearhawks & members of the Bearhawk community. It also contains some stories that we hope you will find interesting. This was done before our newest models were designed and the kits for them manufactured. Enjoy.”
