Sleek is how I would describe the Sabre. It offers a good power to-weight ratio and power-off glide performance, as well as crisp handling response.

Mechanical brakes on the main gear also give it excellent short-field performance. The side doors are removable for flying in all seasons, and the Sabre is available in either conventional or tricycle-gear configurations.

52 ponies from the Rotax 503 DCDI allows the Sabre to pop off the sod in 175 feet as well as land in 175. Top speed is 90 mph, cruise of 65, and a service ceiling of 14,000 feet. The wingspan is 29 feet 8 inches; length, 22 feet 4 inches; height 7 feet.

This high-wing monoplane is made of composite, tubing, am fabric, and it took only about 140 hours to assemble. The price of the complete kit including all the bells and whistles (engine, prop and instruments) was only $12,990 in 1993.

Zoom Report: I enjoyed flying the Sabre... It has excellent control response with agile handling. The trike gear is stable, but the taildragger version is a lot more fun.
