EAA Chapter 282 has for a period of time been manufacturing an AcroDuster Too as a Chapter project. As you may know, an EAA Chapter is prohibited by EAA National rules from operating a flying aircraft. Therefore, as soon as the project is completed it will be sold. As we are making careful but steady progress, the project is taking shape nicely and will be completed relatively soon. The wings and control surfaces are completed with the exception of final paint. The firewall forward is currently being assembled to position equipment and controls.
Afterwards the engine will be assembled utilizing a hollow crank, new cylinders, computer controlled digital pulse fuel injection and solid state ignition system. The airframe plumbing and wiring are nearing completion. Next, the structure and fitting of the canopy will be completed followed by covering of the fuselage and paint. The completion is now well in sight.
The Clearwater Flying Club, Inc. (CFC) has executed a purchase agreement to take ownership of the project at its completion with the intention of basing it at Clearwater Air Park and used exclusively by members of the club. The CFC has openings for membership and a share of the ownership of the AcroDuster. Priority for membership is offered to current members of EAA Chapter 282.
Contact CFC president Jim McCarthy or any of the individuals below for additional information regarding application to join and take advantage of this offer of a high performance, newly built, high technology engine, fully aerobatic two seat aircraft.
