FT CAD Gremlin
The FT Mini Pietenpol was designed to honor the vision and benefits of its full-size, two-seat, big brother. It is simple, fun and easy to fly while also being easy to build. These characteristics were the goal of the original 1928 design by Bernard Pietenpol. Pietenpol took pride in getting people in the air with minimal investment, skills and tools. His heart reflects Flite Test’s values in every way.
The FT Mini Pietenpol is a three-channel design that makes coordinated turns and flies slow and stable. The kit can be built after dinner and be ready to fly before bed time. The techniques needed to build this kit are not only simple, but carry across all 40 plus FT designs. Our desire is that this little bird will be the source of many wonderful flights and memories that will be shared within families for years to come.
“I was powerfully inspired as a young child when I received my first Pietenpol ride at the age of 12. Flite Test’s desire is to inspire both young and old with this little plane.” Josh Bixler
