Guest Rillert

Hi all looking to build a 4 seater. However it needs to be all metal with around a 200 hp engine. I have seen the Tundra and also the RV. Just want to know what else is around. Thanks

you can't really go past the RV 10, fast comfy and relatively easy to build, bear cat also do a nice 4 seat pacer copyMat

A friend is building one but it's going to cost about $250,000.00 with all the extras [ a very nice aircraft and great cruise speed]

Rillert if you want to give us some idea of the sort of flying you want to do (i.e rough as guts bush flying,weekend away cruisers etc etc, tailwheel or tri-gear etc etc) we might be able to point you in the direction of a plane that suits pretty well.

 

Also when you say metal is a fabric covered steel tube frame aircraft acceptable (something like a bearhawk)?

 

anyway, list of just metal 4 seat kits that the others havn't mentioned yet:

 

Bede Aircraft (http://www.jimbede.com): BD-4C and BD-4B might suit

 

Dream Aircraft (http://www.dreamaircraft.com): tundra might suit

 

Glasair (http://www.glasairaviation.com): Sportsman might suit (might also be composite - not sure about that one)

 

Murphy aircraft manufacturing (http://www.murphyair.com): Moose (6 seater, 350hp) (probably more here - check the site)

 

Tapanee Aviation (http://www.tapanee.com): Levitation 4 (might be fabric + metal tube, not sure).

 

If you decide to drop the must-be-metal requirement you'll find a whoooooooooole bunch of 4 seater composites and fabric+tube aircraft.

Yes, the Glasair is of composite construction
