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 150+ 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.
