New Product: "Swing-Wing" Ultralight to Be at AirVenture

Gene and Larry Smith, the owners of Culver Props and Valley Engineering will have the production model of their new Back Yard Flyer "swing-wing" legal ultralight at Oshkosh. With its award-winning four-stroke Big Twin engine out front and its ability to rotate the wing 90° on its vertical axis, this plane can open the door to many pilots who can't afford out-of-sight hangar rents.

The plane can be seen in Booth 560 in the lightplane area at the south end of the field.

    It is always a good idea to hand wash any of your knives with a warm (nothot)
    soapy cloth and rinse and dry them immediately.
