Texas Parasol aircraft plans

Over 60 of these little planes have been built so far.  The simple and forgiving construction and very inexpensive materials make it a good choice for a first time project.

Simple, very sturdy, and inexpensive to build. This ultralight parasol is powered by a 40 hp two-stroke engine . Very nice flying little airplanes.

Aluminium front deck, Custom fiberglass engine cowl, 1600cc VW engine,   Full span ailerons, Aileron push-rods, Wood fairing strips for aft fuselage.

Plans are now available for the basic parasol airplane. Published as a page builders manual, there are lots of descriptions, sketches, pictures, etc to help a first time builder understand the process and get started building. The manual includes 50 pages of text and another 50 pages of dimensioned construction drawings as well as a full size rib pattern.

Plans for the basic parasol are published in book form consisting of 50 + pages of "story" (with pictures, sketches, tips, etc.) and another 50 pages of dimensioned detail drawings for layouts and parts fabrication. There is very few parts on this  plane that can not be made with basic hand tools.
Also Includes AN hardware guide - and - a full sized airfoil pattern.
It's a really simple build. And a nice flyer too. The plans manual sells for $75.00
