Infinity 1 High Performance Quick Build Kit Canard Sport Aircraft

Infinity 1 High Performance Quick Build Kit Canard Sport Aircraft

Designed by INFINITY Aerospace , the Infinity 1 High Performance Quick Build Kit Canard Sport Aircraft offers one of the largest cockpits in its class, with 80 cubic feet of interior passenger volume.  Headroom is 36.0 inches in the front and 35.0 inches in the rear seats.

At only $39,995.00, the Infinity 1 pre-preg and vacuum bag High Performance Quick Build Kit Sport Aircraft comes equipped with ALL airframe parts and hardware; wings, winglets and canard come complete in primer paint, pre-molded bulkheads and ribs, fuselage and strakes ( top and bottom ) pre-molded in primer paint, as well as antennas, conduits and heat ducts installed.  This means the basic VFR Infinity 1 can be completed in only 600 to 1000+ hours!

The Infinity 1 also sports two of the most innovative designs in canard aviation.  An electro-hydraulic retractable tricycle oleo strut landing gear comes standard with all Infinity 1 Quick Build Kits.  Boasting a 46 degree Turn-Over Angle ( TOA ), the oleo retract gear design has been drop tested at 2200 lbs. per FAR’s with the fuel tanks full of water, and is U.S. and Canadian FAA approved.  A steerable oleo nose strut with Lamb size tire also is standard.  This nose strut is designed to retract on deck and set the aircraft on it’s nose for easy ingress and egress for both the pilot and passenger(s).

Current design options for the Infinity 1 include mounted baggage pods and pylons.  These pods and pylons provide an additional 5+ cubic feet of cargo space.  Added to the standard 20 cubic feet in the strakes and cockpit, this gives the Infinity 1 well over 25 cubic feet of baggage area.

If you’re looking for the best in aviation products, continue looking to INFINITY Aerospace .  Behind our name lies a philosophy of maintaining an international viewpoint, and remaining dedicated to supplying aviation products of the highest quality, yet at a reasonable price for worldwide customer satisfaction.

The final prototype is complete except for the Big Buck items — the instrument panel, and the firewall aft.

A Quick Build Kit from the Get-Go

600 to 1,000+ hour construction time for a basic VFR plane.

Pre-preg and vacuum bag constructed kit

Includes ALL airframe parts and hardware for the Quick Build Kit — YES, the Retractable Landing Gear, MATCO wheels, 3 puck brakes & parking brake, and Michelin Air Tires & Leak Proof Tubes, ARE included [ engine ( firewall aft ), avionics, instruments, radios, prop, paint and 2 wing Pylons with 2 Pods are extra ].

Delivered in Primer Paint

Wings, winglets, canard, fuselage and strakes come to you complete in primer paint — including installed antennas — you just install flight controls, Instrument Panel, Firewall aft, and paint the aircraft.

Steerable Oleo Nose Strut

The steerable oleo nose strut with 11.5″ diameter Lamb type and size tire ( looks like a scaled down 5.00 x 5 tire ), retracts electro-hydraulically on deck ( separate from the main gear ) and sets the aircraft on it’s nose for really easy ingress and egress for the pilot and passenger(s) ( simply step into the cockpit like an Indy car ), and for VERY stable parking in high winds because of the low TOA.

Customization-ready

Fuselage and strakes arrive to you as a top and bottom pre-molded tub in primer paint, wire and plumbing conduits, and heat ducts, are already installed in the fuselage walls and floor.  Just install pre-molded bulkheads, baffles, ribs, completed Instrument Panel, and Firewall aft.  Then paint to complete aircraft.

Custom Instrument Panels

Basic VFR, basic IFR, and custom instrument panels, will be available.

U.S. and Canadian FAA approved

Electro-hydraulic retractable tricycle oleo strut landing gear with steerable oleo nose strut, 46 degree Turn-Over Angle ( TOA ), already drop tested at 2,200 lbs. per FAR’s with the tanks full of water, U.S. and Canadian FAA approved.

Electro-Hydraulically Operated

Electro-hydraulically operated large Speed Brake ;
Electro-hydraulically operated single piece Canopy opens aft ala F-16 — AND, you can NOT forget to latch it ( Safety Feature ) ;

1) Wing Mounted Pods

Hard Points built into the wings for customizable Pods and Pylons for golf clubs, skis, Zuni Rockets, AMRAM, Anti-Personnel Mines, Napalm, Electronic Warfare (EW) Pods, any kind of electronics pods, most any kind of ordinance, plumbing for external fuel, and/or extra baggage, and pod removes separately from pylon ; i.e. — pylons can be capped and left on the wings when pods are removed.

2) Canopy Opening

Configuration can be varied ( i.e. — split F-4 Phantom style; to the side Coffin Style; forward in 1 piece like the glider boys do; split so that the front half goes forward and the aft half goes aft, but the aft half must close first because the front half closes over the aft half’s front lip — another Safety Feature ).

3) Ballistic Parachute Recovery System ( optional )

Recovery System for entire aircraft.

CALCULATED PERFORMANCE derived from NASA Computer Wind Tunnel Analysis ( within 1 drag count of accuracy ) :

( JD’s goal is to design an entirely new, inexpensive, easy to maintain, fast to build, Quick Build Kit Canard Sport Aircraft with tricycle oleo strut retractable main landing gear, and with steerable retractable oleo nose strut, that will cruise 250+ mph on 210 HP @ 75% power at 10,000 ft., carry 2 people his size [ JD is 6′ 6″ tall ], carry 2 sets of golf clubs and baggage, fly 4+ hrs. and get 20+ mpg, be able to land on grass and dirt runways [ he’s from the Midwest ], and never to land at the same airport twice ( unless there’s something really special at that airport ) so he can see the entire country via the 15,000+ airports in the USA — as you can see, we think we are in there ! )  { No, it will not be sold as a Plans Built Aircraft — sorry. }
