1999 Rutan THIS IS AN AS IS, WHERE IS SALE N16FW 1999 Rutan Defiant Highlights:Its performance is.
N16FW - 1999 Rutan Defiant Highlights:
Its performance is comparable to a Diamond DA42 Twin or a Beech G35/36...Check specs for yourself and compare with initial and operating costs of other aircraft and you will see there is just no comparison. It could be made faster, but currently does approx. 155 knots on 14.5 GPH without wheel pants (should be approx. +10 with wheel pants). Easy, fun and safe to build twin time. You can safely fly on one engine with this one! (but don"t take my word for it...check Burt Rutan videos on this plane on the web)
