Don't know if any of you know it, but FK-Lightplanes are building what looks to be a P51 replica!

Seriously do not know why more has not been said on this, or these FK aeries.

AMAZING!

FK-LightPLanes is run by a South African too! Any of you buddies with Roland Hallam? I see there are no agents for these planes in SA (yet)

Hi All.

The agent for FK in SA is Investment Aircraft at Lanseria.

As for the FK51, I saw it at AERO 2012, and have ordered one. She should be here in SA by April 2015.

FK do make some excellent aeries. I have been up in the comet for some basic Aeros, really impressed. Tried a few on for size at the expo this year(except the FK51 sadly) and found them all to be very comfortable and very nicely designed/put together.

I wonder if this aerie is a serious competitor for the Shark though i.t.o a two seat tandem?

that shark is something else, and the ergonomics were unmatched by any aircraft at the expo imo.
The older I get, the more I am convinced that "A Confederacy of Dunces" is non fiction.
