The first BK1 prototype project, competed in 2004 was focused on proving the airframe design, building process, and flight characteristics. It was and still is a grand sucess, showing how a small, light, inexpensive airframe can fit a large pilot and fly long cross country missions with room for all the camping gear and luggage needed for the trip to the big show. See the "Trip Reports" above for the whole story.
The second BK1 prototype focused on the the CAD drawings and photo documentation. They are an integral part of the building process. Nothing was built until the CAD drawings were in hand, and thousands of photos were taken to document the process for builders. Easily drawing and documenting process took 5 times as long as the actual building process.
This has been a great project, a real work of love for me. But, it will remain alive and fully supported for years to come. All plans holders will continue to get updates and full email and phone support.
With the plans and documentation done BK Flier will now be able to moving forward with parts support full time. Let me know what you think, find us at www.facebook/bkfliers.
