Aerosky 185 Photo Shoot

Don’t look too closely, but take a few steps back and I think she looks pretty nice.  I love the older style 185 tail and the tail dragger configuration.  The relatively large wheels help me imaging this is a bush plane intended to get in an out of rough strips.

It is still winter here in MN and our ground is still covered in a foot of snow at least.  I’m hoping the snow melts quickly so I can get out and maiden this airplane soon!

Yup, she looks pretty sweet I’d say!

Aerosky 185 Build Notes

I was interested in the Aerosky Sky Trainer 185 because it looks a lot like a Cessna 185.  It has the 185 tail and is setup as a taildragger.  Technically the rear window is not correct for a 185, but there are a lot of things you could nitpick if you really wanted to go there.   The other interesting aspect of this kit is that it includes a full set of float for water operations.  I live near a little lake so I am hoping this will fly well off water on a nice calm summer evening.
