Kit No. 5549 came to us partially completed and in need of some TLC. With a Subaru EJ22, MGL glass cockpit and taildragger configuration, this project will really stand out amongst this popular little aircraft type. With an MGL autopilot and long range tanks, cross-country will be a breeze for this lucky customer!
A year after purchase in 2002, the owner brought his Glastar kit in for some initial help with airframe assembly. The owner then carried on with the the build, but brought it back to Innovative Wings in 2011. Due to a lack of personal time the owner has asked Innovative Wings to complete the build and assist with airworthiness inspections and flight testing.
With the phenomenal support of the Glasair factory, 9 years worth of service bulletins have been retrofitted to the kit. The aircraft features a Subaru EJ22 with dual ignition, MGL Stratomaster Odyssey panel and auopilot system. The kit was fitted with extended range tanks which should translate into 5 hours endurance when paired with an Airflow Performance fuel injection system
