SkyCraft’s first product, the SD-1 Minisport, is a Czech-designed single-seat aircraft that cruises at 118 mph, climbs at 1,400 fpm, and burns 1.8 gph of fuel. Its operational costs are $12 an hour. It currently has the lowest price tag of any Light Sport Aircraft at $54,850. In addition to the price and the operational cost, the plane has removable wings for trailer transportation/storage and free propeller and engine overhauls.
The SD-1 Minisport is by no means a “bare bones” airplane, like many other airplane companies shooting for affordability have made. The SD-1 Minisport is equipped with Dynon Glass Avionics (GPS, collision avoidance, synthetic flight), all-digital gauges with audio/visual warning systems, a GPS-based radio that automatically tunes into local air traffic frequencies, navigation and anti-collision lights, and a luxurious leather interior - all standard.
