Development The Skybolt was designed by Lamar Steen as a high school engineering project and the first example flew in October 1970. The aircraft has a classic structure consisting of a welded tube fuselage and wooden wings, all fabric covered. It is a tandem open-cockpit two-seat biplane and is stressed for normal aerobatics. The cockpits are frequently constructed as a single tandem cabin with an enclosing bubble canopy. Some aerobatic competition aircraft are built as single seaters with the front cockpit closed off. The original Skybolt had a 180 h.p. Lycoming HO-360-B1B engine, but powerplants of 150 h.p. up to 260 h.p. can be installed.[1] Operational history The Skybolt has become popular as an amateur-built sporting biplane, with over 400 aircraft having been completed from construction plans sold in over 29 countries.[1] A Skybolt won the Reserve Grand Champion Custom Built for 1979 at the Experimental Aircraft Association airshow in Oshkosh Wisconsin.[2] Sixteen examples were currently registered in the United Kingdom as at January 2009.[3] Specifications (version with 180 h.p. engine) Steen Skybolt Data from Simpson 2001 General characteristics Crew: 1 pilot Capacity: 1 passenger Length: 19 ft 0 in (5.79 m) Wingspan: 24 ft 0 in (7.32 m) Height: 7 ft 0 in (2.13 m) Empty weight: 1,080 lb (490 kg) Max takeoff weight: 1,650 lb (748 kg) Powerplant: 1 × Lycoming HO-360-B1B piston, 180 hp (130 kW) Performance Maximum speed: 145 mph (233 km/h; 126 kn) Cruise speed: 130 mph (110 kn; 210 km/h) Range: 450 mi (391 nmi; 724 km) Rate of climb: 2,500 ft/min (13 m/s) See also Comparable aircraft Acro Sport II Pitts Special Sorrell Hiperbipe Notes ^ a b Simpson, 2001 p.521 ^ Sport Aviation.  ^ Pither, 2009, p.650 References Pither, Tony (2009).
