Highlander

The Highlander is a versatile aircraft with great performance capabilities. The cockpit is 44" wide with lots of headroom and over 30 cu. ft. of cargo area. The plane has adjustable seats and there is plenty of cargo room to haul everything you need for that hunting, fishing or cross country trip. Planes may be fitted with floats as an amphib, with wheels, or skiis for winter use. This aircraft is very affordable and with the proper maintenance will last you a lifetime. Combine these features with the new Light Sport Pilot license and you too can enjoy the thrill of flying your own airplane!

The Highlander has the same great features as its predecessor the Escapade, but with all the great upgrades to make it the ultimate back country bush aircraft. The Highlander is manufactured with all high quality aircraft materials and can be fitted with a Rotax or Jaribu aircraft engine. The power and light operating weight, coupled with 121 square foot of wing area, allows the aircraft to take off and land with a ground roll of 300 feet. The Highlander also has an impressive 880 feet per minute climb rate.

I like bush planes, but I don't like planes that break in the bush. Walking out is not fun. My goal, and I think I have achieved it, was to build a rugged bush plane that will not break in the back country- Troy Woodland, Design Engineer
