The Aeropup is a fully customizable experimental-amateur built kit perfectly suited for first time and experienced aircraft builders.  The Aeropup is a high performing high wing STOL aircraft with exceptional, performance, comfort, and payload not matched by today's LSA.   The Aeropup is an incredibly robust flying machine with a fuselage made of tough well-engineered y CNC-precision formed chromium-alloy steel tube that surrounds the pilot and passenger in a rugged safety cage.  In addition to the strong steel cage fuselage, the Aeropup wing is comprised of three wing spars for extra strength. The main spar is a webbed structure providing more a higher strength to weight ratio compared to heavier and more traditional hollow spars. This design feature is unique to Aeropup (Click to Download latest Info Flyer).

 

An extremely popular feature of the Aeropup is its simple folding wing design.  Only ten minutes required to fold the wings for easy trailering and 10 minutes to extend wings for flight ready.
