SkyCraft SD-1 Minisport March Update
It’s been a busy winter for SkyCraft Airplanes as we move closer to S-LSA Certification for the SD-1 Minisport. Here are just a few highlights of our latest progress:

Engine Upgrades:
A few months ago we announced that the SD-1 Minisport was being equipped with an ethanol-resistant fuel system, which allows the engine to run on premium unleaded from your local gas station. Since then we’ve upgraded the exhaust and computer systems on our fuel-injected Hirth F-23 which will increase the efficiency of the engine, allow for a smoother idle, and reduce engine vibrations throughout the aircraft. Flight testing on the SD-1 is currently in progress.

Financing Now Available:
SkyCraft Airplanes is now offering financing for the SD-1 Minisport, making it more affordable than ever. Financing terms allow for minimum payments of under $500 a month with a 50% down payment. More details are available on our website.

Buy the SD-1 Minisport with Bitcoin:
In December, SkyCraft became the first airplane manufacturer to sell its planes for Bitcoin, the internet’s most valuable digital currency. The decision sparked excitement in the Bitcoin community, as SkyCraft was featured by several Bitcoin news outlets. Since the announcement, orders for the SD-1 Minisport have nearly doubled.

Design Customization:
Three different exterior design options have been released for the SD-1 with various color options available for each. SkyCraft has added an airplane customizer to the website where you can design your own SD-1 Minisport.

Upcoming Shows:

Sun ‘n Fun: 4/1 - 4/6; Lakeland, FL
EAA Airventure: 7/8 - 8/3; Oshkosh, WI [ home ]
