New 2017 Custom This 2017 Hinkens Aerolight is a registered experimental plane. It is all aluminum.
The engine is half of a Volkswagen engine so it is two opposed cylinders. Much of the engine work was done by MOFOCO Volkswagen shop on Capitol Drive in Milwaukee. Ignition is Magneto. Altimeter, AirSpeed, turn & Bank. Wing & tail lights, shoulder belts.
