AUSTIN, Texas – Bearhawk Aircraft’s Bearhawk four-place aircraft scored a first place finish at the Texas STOL Roundup held April 11-13 in Llano, Texas (KAQO). The winning aircraft, a kit-built Bearhawk manufactured by AviPro of Austin, Texas, competed in the heavy touring class (gross weight from 2,500 to 3,600 lbs.).
The event was “extremely well attended” according to participants and organizers, with more than 200 aircraft present. Each participant was scored on one run from the better of two sets of takeoffs and landings.
Piloting the aircraft was Bearhawk Aircraft demo pilot Wayne Massey. Massey’s combined takeoff and landing distance was 445 feet.
Mark Goldberg, president of AviPro commented, “The Texas STOL Roundup was an excellent event for us to show off the Bearhawk. It was designed for a combination of takeoff, landing, cruise speed and carrying capacity. Backcountry flying is what the Bearhawk does best. We were pleased to be among other talented pilots and competitive aircraft. Although the event is held in the spirit of fun, we are extremely pleased to take home the first-place award.”
