Classic Aero-TV: Bright-Shiny-Airworthy!--Steve Cole's Hummel UltraCruiser

From 2015 (YouTube Version): Some Of the Prettiest Sights Of Oshkosh Were Also Very Affordable

At EAA AirVenture 2015, there are lots of airplanes to look at, but this one is a real eye catcher. It’s a small single-place airplane, it qualifies as an ultralight, and is so shiny you need dark glasses just to look at it in the sunlight.

ANN’s News Editor, Tom Patton, had a sit-down and chat with, Steve Cole, who is the builder and owner of this Hummel UltraCruiser which took the Grand Champion Ultralight trophy this year at Oshkosh.

It’s a plans-built airplane that Cole completed with unbelievable attention to detail. The all-aluminum airframe is shiny beyond belief and Cole tells us how he did it. It’s a process that works, but it’s probably not for everybody.

In the video Cole talks about the construction of the airplane and its performance. It’s obvious to see he is dedicated to detail. In case you think all ultralights equate to flying lawn chairs, this video will convince you that this simply isn’t true in the case of this Hummel UltraCruiser.
