T Bird Tierra

T Bird Tierra is one of the easiest ultralight aircraft for home builders and takes only about 100 hours to build from a kit.

The most important characteristics:

  • Rotax engine airctaft
  • 70 mph / 113 kph cruise speed
  • 259 kg / 572 lbs empty weight

Such planes can be found second hand (sometimes unfinished kits) for less than $20,000 or even less than $10,000. I saw an ad for T Bird I selling for $6,000. It's lovely affordable experimental airplane.

T Bird is produced by Indy Aircaft Ltd. Check their official site for current product info and if you want to purchase a new kit. Price information is not available.
