What is it like to actually build a Panther?


Like all airplanes the Panther was designed with a specific set of compromises. One major goal was ease of build and a low parts count.

We would like to give you a taste of what it is actually like to build a Panther, so we are posting here an excerpt of the Rudder section from the Panther Builders Manual and an example of a the Rudder Plans Sheet.

You can also see builders progress on the PantherCave and our Beta Builder Tony Spicer has done an excellent job walking us through his build with a photo tutorial HERE.

Reminder – Barnwell, SC Corvair College #27 is only a few weeks away.  You are invited to come and see the Panther @ KBNL airport anytime Veteran’s Day weekend –  November 8-10th.  Let us know if you can make it by clicking the box below!

    It looks as though ease of build and low parts count are achieved. As in any build care in assembly is the key factor. Folks should get a good look at the Panther during CC#27. We’ll be celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary here in Nebraska at the same time.
