The Highlander is a versatile aircraft with great performance capabilities. The cockpit is 44″ wide with lots of headroom and over 30 cu. ft. of cargo area. The plane has adjustable seats and there is plenty of cargo room to haul everything you need for that hunting, fishing or cross-country trip. Planes may be fitted with floats as an amphib, with wheels, or skiis for winter use. This aircraft is very affordable and with the proper maintenance will last you a lifetime. Combine these features with the new Light Sport Pilot license and you too can enjoy the thrill of flying your own airplane!

Everything needed to build a complete highlander for most people will be between $70,000 to $100,000. Pricing varies depending on the engine package and other options. Some of the more popular options are suspension upgrades, leading-edge cuff on the wing, and reshaping leading edges of the ailerons. You can also upgrade with our custom-made 5-gallon header tank.
