    Prototype flown to Sun 'n Fun 2015. Kit prices are tentative. Kits are to become available in 2016 but the company is pre-selling a limited number now. FWF kits available. From the designer: The Saberwing is a purpose built design as an economical, simple to build, performance cross country aircraft. Its sleek design and comfort make it a pleasure to look at and fly. With our economical engine package it brings down your flight cost per mph to a very affordable rate. From out of the box to sitting on its gear with a few short hours of work keeps you motivated to finish this airplane. The composite work is simple and gives a very easy to work with finish.
