Jim Bede may have recently passed away, but Jim Bede Jr. continues the family company. In fact, Bedecorp is reintroducing the BD-6 with several upgrades.
The newest BD-6 now uses fiberglass landing gear and honeycomb panels several places around the airframe. The design continues with the wings and tail from the diminutive single-seat BD-17, along with 60 hp worth of HKS power.
For 2015 the BD-4 gains a rear door on the left side for better access. Recommended engine for it is the 250 hp UL Power 350 cylinder.
