Bushwhacker Air, LLC,
of Queensbury, New York and Rocky Mountain Wings, LLC –
manufacturer of Award Winning Ridge Runner Aircraft - have combined
forces, creating a new manufacturer of Experimental Aircraft.
In addition to designing, producing, and marketing new aircraft,
the company will offer support for both the Ridge Runner as well as
Flying K/Skyraider Aircraft.
They have also acquired all the tooling, parts and inventory
from North Land Aircraft in Sun River, Montana, a producer of
experimental PA-18 Supercub fuselage fittings and parts. PMA
certification is expected at a later date.
Production of a new Ridge Runner 4 (shown above,

Wing, Sport Pilot Legal Bush-plane will be undertaken in New York.
Features include a 44” wide cabin, folding wings, extra-tall
gear and power options from a Rotax 503 to the 7 cylinder ROTEC
Radial. The Bushwhacker will be built utilizing the same techniques
that the Schraders have perfected over the last 17 years.
Rocky Mountain Wings
will continue to produce the Ridge Runner 1, 2, and 3 (shown right)
series aircraft in Nampa, Idaho. Future plans include a Certified
Light Sport Aircraft based on the Ridge Runner 3 and 4, and both an
E-LSA and Experimental PA-18 Supercub Kit.
