For sale, this lovely KITFOX Classic IV Speedster taildragger.


Reason for sale:
Building a plane is such a fun process that I want to do it again. Along with a childhood friend, I'm going to build a completely different model. I do not want and can not have two devices on hold: not emotionally, not technically nor financially. So for the PH FOX I want to find another good home in time.

This plane is build and registered as an Experimental VLA. That means, among other things, that this Kitfox can make use of it’s maximum MTOW, and that the owner is doing maintenancet, and for example, determines on-condition situations. Including hangaring EHMZ if desired.

PH-FOX is a wonderful flying plane that can be qualified in all respects as high-performance: for example, takeoff and landing characteristics are very special! The flaperons provide you with steering capacity in very low speeds (even in stall). Crosswind Landings are now far more easy!Because of its large tail and rudder the Kitfox handles wonderfully light, with almost no response time. Yet she is not "twitchy" and will also fly hands-off just fine. Inexperienced passengers who want to steer just can directly manage with this unit.
The flaperons also serve as a (mechanical) trim: No more waiting in T & G configuration, and no possible disfunctioning of any kind.
PH FOX has been hangared during her short life in a heated hangar in Zeeland the Netherlands (EHMZ), and is also on display there.
