Bearhawk Patrol 2 place

Unread post by Jayson v Schalkwyk » Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:41 pm

So, there has been a 2 place version designed, uses same principles as the 4 place version. For all the guys who think a cub is the best thing under the sun.... enjoy the read. 9This was hijacked from the official Bearhawk aircraft website http://www.bearhawkaircraft.com

The Bearhawk Patrol is a high wing aircraft designed for comfort, endurance and fun. The generous proportions of the cabin provide plenty of room for just about any sized pilot, a passenger (or two if they are small) and gear. The large baggage door ensures the ability to easily load your cargo.

The available visibility is outstanding both on the ground and in the air. The patrols flight controls are light and very responsive at cruise and slow speeds. Low landing speeds are further enhanced by the use of the 18 ft. span, manually operated flaps (up to 40 degrees).

The Patrol can stay aloft for a very long time. With an O-360 Lycoming pulled back for maximum endurance, a steady 100+ mph can be maintained for nearly nine hours. Or at a more brisk 140 mph pace, you have more than five hours endurance. The Patrols 55 gallon fuel tanks allow it to reach many remote locations and return home safely. The Bearhawk Patrol is everything that made the Super Cub famous and has significantly greater speed, climb rate and endurance. Factually, the Patrol has three huge advantages over a SuperCub. First, there is NO opportunity for a Moose stall. The slow flight characteristics are amazing and it won't spin unless you force it. Second, there is a huge baggage door, since the longerons are up higher in the structure. Third, it's 40 miles per hour faster in cruise.

Most importantly, the Patrol is FUN! The remarkable performance is easily utilized by the average pilot. The stick controls connect the pilot to the aircraft in a way that a yoke cannot. The Patrol can land in many fields that you would not even consider with other airplanes. Furthermore, this stout airframe has experienced a very satisfying test program for intermediate aerobatics with a crisp roll rate and responsive handling. The Patrol's versatility opens a whole new world of aviation to the private pilot.

The Bearhawk Patrol can accept engines from 115hp to 210hp. The prototype is powered by an O-360 Lycoming 180hp engine swinging a fixed pitch aluminum propeller. The fabric covered steel tube fuselage is a time proven way to build a strong and durable structure. The all aluminum, flush riveted wing features a Riblett 30-413.5 airfoil and available 40 degrees flap setting.

The Patrol is a recent, original design of Robert Barrows of Fincastle, Virginia. Both aircraft are designed to the equivalency of Utility Category standards for increased structural strength and enhanced capability for unimproved airstrips. A 180hp Patrol has a cruise speed (60% power) of 140 MPH, a takeoff roll of 250 feet and a landing speed of 35 MPH. The wing span is 33 feet. Cabin width is 32 inches. The Patrol has a 1,050 pound useful load (depending on a builder's equipment selections), if built to Utility Category equivalency as designed.

pretty aerie. when you going to get cracking on your 4 seater? quite expensive for a two seater that you still have to build and kit out.

Hi Mark,

There is a patrol that has been built and lives at Fly Inn. Was built by Wayne Giles. I saw it quite late in the construction and I now understand it has started flying.
