The CHIPPER has been heavily covered in the media since it was introduced at the SUN 'n FUN Fly-in & Exposition in 2017. As Grant Boyd concluded in his article in Aviators Hotline, “Chipper rivals other kit planes and has been called (by media members and amateur pilots, alike) as the ‘Best in its Class.’” We appreciate the positive reviews as well as the testimonials from our customers. Below are some articles which have reviewed The Chipper or carried announcements regarding our continued performance advances.
