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.
