Aerosport's Bushcat Arrives At OSH21, Sponsors ANN Special Event Coverage

Aerosport's Bushcat And A Whole Roster Of Sport-Aero Services Are Available Through Their Illinois And Florida Operations

The BushCat is the third and latest generation of the aircraft previously known as the Cheetah.

It is an aircraft which has been designed around four principles: Simplicity, ruggedness, low cost and FUN!?

The original Cheetah LSA was a robust and reliable work horse. It quickly gained popularity among the South African bush flying community, and earned its reputation as a fun flying workhorse. Aerodynamic and ergonomic improvements were later made to the aircraft, as well as modifications from worldwide customer feedback, which resulted in the second generation Cheetah XLS.

It soon became clear that the role of the aircraft was to serve bush pilots in areas that other light sport aircraft just couldn’t handle. As a result, the focus moved toward making the aeroplane tougher than any other in its class, and able to withstand the might of the veld and tundra – as a result the BushCat was born.

Since then the BushCat has continued to serve its duties as a bush aeroplane and is being successfully used in anti-wildlife-poaching missions in various regions of Africa. More BushCats are on order by conservation entities for this very purpose as it meets the very specific requirements of these missions.

The aircraft is extremely comfortable with the widest cabin in its class and offers generous headroom making the aircraft perfect for all sizes of pilots. Due to its simplistic modular design, the aircraft is extremely easy to work on thus reducing the cost of maintenance and repair to a minimum. Available in nose-wheel and tail-dragger configurations as a factory built (ready-to-fly) or Kit, the aircraft also caters for all preferences. The price, performance and cheeky looks of the aircraft capturing the attention of many.
