Kolb Aircraft introduced the Ultra Star in the early 80's as a replacement for the Kolb Flyer. The Ultra Star has a 4130 chromoly steel front section, mated to an aluminum boom tube running to the tail empennage. It is a high wing pusher with the engine mounted low and inverted directly behind the pilot.

The Ultra Star has a three axis control system with rudder pedals a side mount stick, and right hand throttle.

The double surfaced wings use a large 5' round aluminum tube for the leading edge, which the ribs are riveted to.

The wings and tail are covered in standard aircraft covering materials. The Ultra Star came with a number of different suspension systems from fiberglass rods, to metal spring steel.

The Ultra Star has single strut wings, which can be easily folded by one person in as little as 10 minutes. Which is great for those with limited space to store their aircraft.

Building times 350 to 400 hours.
