An Ultralight Bush plane!

  • Two place side-by-side dual control sticks.
  • High quality 4130 Chrome moly steel.
  • Wings fold in under 2 minutes. No disconnecting of controls or surfaces.
  • Tail-wheel or tricycle landing gear, easy swap.
  • UK section S static and flight certification testing requirements.

Introduced at Arlington and Oshkosh 2004. The Highlander is an upgraded version of the Escape. Just Aircraft's new bush plane qualifications are enhanced by a larger balanced elevator and rudder, a larger trim tab, extended (and beefed up) gear legs with larger wheels and brakes, gull wing doors (can be opened in flight), an 8 tail wheel and VG's. plus a new three foot longer wing! There's plenty of room too, 5'4 Rachelle can easily curl up for a nap in the cargo area!

From the Manufacturer:

The planes are available as complete ready to assemble kits which take about 600 - 700 hours to complete. Or you may choose various stages of assembly based upon your time demands and pocket book. Some choose to have the factory finish the wings and cover the fuselage which cuts the build time in half. There is also the option of "Build Assist" where for a nominal monthly fee the owner may assemble the plane in the factory with company experts on hand for assistance. Those desiring a complete build ready to fly option will find this also available.
