I am now near the main entrance and about to wind my way east towards AeroShell Square. This is the Barrows Bearhawk. The Bearhawk is a four-place plans or kit built tail dragger with STOL capabilities. Construction is conventional steel tube and fabric fuselage with an all-metal wing.

This is the AviPro's exhibit area. AviPro was formed a few years ago to build and market parts and kits for the Bearhawk. They have just begun to ship kits. Plans alone are still available from Bob Barrows, 2079 Breckinridge Mill Rd., Fincastle, VA 24090, 540-473-3661. This article (a pdf file) from "Northern Pilot" magazine provides an excellent overview of Bob Barrows' Bearhawk and AviPro's kits and parts.
