Mountain Wings LLC of Nampa Idaho has two new planes out for 2000 The
Ridge Runner UL and the Ridge Runner 11. The basic difference
between the two planes is that one is an ultralight while the other fits
the experimental category.
The ultralight version comes in at 250 lbs,
while the experimental model is 70 lbs heavier. The only other major
difference is the fuel capacity with the ultralight version having a 5
gallon tank and the experimental version 10 gallons.
Both aircraft feature 4130 chrome-moly steel
airframes, all parts are powder coated white for corrosion protection,
the wing kit includes prefabricated ribs, and the kits come complete
with all hardware, seat belts, shoulder harnesses, wheels, tires and 1.7
oz covering material.
Building time is reported at 250 hours.
While the aircraft might be new to the market
the people behind Rocky Mountain Wings, are not. Stace Schrader has been
involved with both the Kitfox and Avid factories, plus was part of the
very successful Skyraider team.
