The Bearhawk Patrol is a plans built aircraft. That means you purchase the blueprints and fabricate everything from raw stock. I selected this project because this airplane is a great bush plane and the building process will stretch my building skill sets.
Early after I decided to build again I discovered Doug Laue was selling his work to date on his Patrol. For personal reasons Doug had to abandon his project. He had nearly completed one wring shown below and the spars & ribs of the second wing. I traveled to his place inspected his work and decided to purchase it. After moving it to my shop I am starting the project.
I must mention that Doug's work is just fantastic. I hope my follow on work is just as good.
