Kitfox Aircraft has broken ground on a new 5,000-square-foot facility at Homedale Airport (S66) in Homedale, Idaho.
“It will be a separate building from our current facility,” notes John McBean, CEO. “Business is going very well and we simply need to make room for the future. The ground preparation has been done and after the spring thaw we will begin building.”
Kitfox manufactures kit-built airplanes. The design, which has been around for decades, continues to be refined, according to McBean. The popularity of the latest design, the Kitfox Series 7 Supersport, is driving the need for expansion, he adds.
“It has convertible gear so it can go from a tailwheel to a tricycle gear, and there are many engine choices, from Rotax to Lycoming to Continental and a lot of people really like that,” he said, noting the design also qualifies for the Light Sport Aircraft category. “They also like the folding wings, which make it easier to store.”
