Wicks Aircraft supply now offering the Hornet and Super Hornet.

Jim Kaiser General Manager of Wicks Aircraft Supply was at Airventure with a new Hornet Rotax 65 HP powered light sport aircraft from Higher Class Aviation of Ramona California.

For over 30 years Wicks has been known as the "experimental aircraft builders friend, "supplying the industry with some of the best Stitka spruce around."

Wicks offers custom cutting of Stitka spruce main spars and T stringers. Wicks also stocks one of the largest selections of MS bolts, nuts, washers, and cabling in the United States. Recently Wicks has expanded their line of products into pilot supplies such as head sets, radios, and hand held GPS units.

According to Jim "Wicks Aircraft has been looking for anWicks Aircraft Supply - Rotax 582 equipped Hornet light sport aircraft. entry level light sport aircraft to sell alongside the TL Sting, Titan Tornado and T-51 that they already handle." Higher Class Aviation was contracted to build the Wicks Hornet, which they delivered in January of 2005.

Jim has been working closely with the factory with improvements in the design which make it more "conventional pilot friendly." These include moving the electric trim switch from the dash to the top of the control stick. A control for locking the hydraulic brake system, and the addition of large tundra tires for off field landings.

The Wicks Hornet is powered by the new Rotax two stroke 65 HP liquid cooled aircraft engine. With this engine climb comes in at around 700 feet per minute, with a cruise in the 80 to 85 mph range, and stall around 40 mph with flaps deployed. But according to Jim the "engine that makes the Hornet into a fire breathing dragon is the Rotax 912."

The unique suspension system on the Hornet features airbags on the two main landing gear and nose wheel, which allows for over 5 inches of travel.

The Hornet and Super Hornet are available in both kit form and ready to fly. For more information on contact:
