    Description

    The Barrows Bearhawk, now also called the Barrows 4-Place Bearhawk, is an American amateur-built aircraft, designed by Bob Barrows and produced by R&B Aircraft of Fincastle, Virginia, AviPro Aircraft and now Bearhawk Aircraft of Austin, Texas.

    General Information

    The aircraft is supplied as a kit or as plans for amateur construction.

     

    The Bearhawk was designed as a personal project by Barrows to carry aircraft engines for delivery as freight. It features a strut-braced high-wing, a four-seat enclosed cabin that is 42.5 in (108 cm) wide and accessed by doors, fixed conventional landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.

     

    The aircraft fuselage is made from welded steel tubing covered in doped aircraft fabric, while the wings are made from aluminium sheet. Its 33 ft (10.1 m) span wing employs a NACA 4412 mod airfoil, has an area of 180 sq ft (17 sq m) and mounts flaps.
