Frequently Asked Questions
Can I build an AeroCanard from the plans only?
Yes, the AeroCanard kit plane offers the best of both worlds, it is available as a kit plane, and also available as a plans build aircraft, which gives you the option of buying as few or many pre-fab fiberglass kit parts as you want to help reduce the building time. The AeroCanard FG Plans include: Manual-Sections I & II. Section III Flight Training Manual. Full size CAD M-Dwgs (36 – 18” x 24”).
How long does it take to build an AeroCanard?
Building an AeroCanard averages as low as 1200-1500 man hours, with two-thirds of that time on the kit. The finishing, engine installation, addition of electrical and avionics, and doing cosmetics takes the remaining one-third time wise. The AeroCanard is constructed modularly (two wings, canard, and fuselage) and can be completely dismantled at any future time by removing approximately ten bolts and some screws in the cowl. The quick-build AeroCanard option will reduce building times approximately 800 hours. See the Quick Build Options page for more details.
