The CHIPPER is an FAA registered and approved light sport experimental aircraft. As such, the FAA requires that the aircraft be 51% amateur built. The Chipper is delivered to each customer as a kit. We offer several approaches to building that will work with the preferences, desired timeline, and budget of our customers. These include offering certain components already built to enhance speed, subkits, and incremental ordering and delivery. Call us at 316-253-6746 to discuss your options and make a plan.
