AUSTIN, TEXAS, JUNE 7, 2018 – Bearhawk Aircraft announced today the formation of Bearhawk Canada to further expand its operations in the vast regions of North America. An agreement has been made with Mike Silvernagle in Saskatchewan to represent Bearhawk Aircraft in Canada for sales, service, parts and support of the three models of Bearhawk aircraft kits.
Mike Silvernagle will base Bearhawk Canada operations on a private 2,500-foot grass strip in southeastern Saskatchewan where customers can visit to check out the Bearhawk lineup and experience demonstration flights. After having flown all three Bearhawk models, including the 4-Place, Patrol and LSA, Mike’s enthusiasm for how well the airplanes fly motivated him to want to distribute the aircraft kits in his native Canada.
Mike’s background in aviation started in the Canadian Advanced Ultra-Light Aeroplanes (AULA) category. Having built and flown various makes and models, Mike became an instructor for these aircraft. More recently Mike owned and operated a Piper PA18-160 Super Cub, an Aeronca Champ and a Cessna 185. Comparing the Bearhawk line of aircraft to those he had flown previously, Mike exclaimed, “The Bearhawks are much better in many ways, and the benefits of operating in the experimental side of aviation in Canada are favorable when compared to certified aircraft. Bearhawk aircraft offer many advantages for Canadian pilots who often use their planes to hunt and fish in the backcountry and visit the numerous rough-field and shorter landing strips.”
Mike recently purchased a flying 4-Place Bearhawk. He is also nearing the completion of his Bearhawk Patrol quick-build kit project. Mike will follow with the construction of a Bearhawk LSA, also from a quick-build kit. His background in AULA has given Mike an appreciation for the flying qualities of the Bearhawk LSA, which Mike considers to be “The best all-around flying airplane I have ever flown.” Mike plans to take the Bearhawk LSA through the approval process for AULA in Canada.
The Bearhawk is a Go Anywhere aircraft that performs a variety of flying activities well. The 4-Place Bearhawk fills a utility and transport role with its large cabin. The Bearhawk Patrol is a tandem 2-place version that excels at accessing remote airstrips. The Bearhawk LSA is a lightweight design that meets U.S. Sport Pilot requirements. Each aircraft shares backcountry qualities that include stable slow flight and higher than expected cruise speeds.
All three Bearhawk models feature a Riblett airfoil. According to Bearhawk design engineer Bob Barrows, “These airfoils are the safest available providing good speed and performance in every regime of flight, especially slow flight. After many thousands of hours of flight, the Riblett airfoil, and Riblett modified 4412 airfoil on the original Bearhawk, are the best and safest airfoils available for the type of flying Bearhawks are designed for. In particular, these airfoils eliminate the notorious and abrupt ‘moose stall’ occurring in low-flying steep turns.”
Bearhawk Aircraft manufactures high quality quick-build kits for the Bearhawk 4-Place, tandem two-place Bearhawk Patrol and Bearhawk LSA. Remaining part of the Bearhawk Canada team, and supporting Mike Silvernagle, will be Steve Busby of Aerolite, www.aeroliteflight.ca, in Ontario.

Kitplanes Magazine Flight Report (July 2018) on the EX-3/FX-3 — Followed by reflections of a Legend Cub builder/owner/operator.
Lighter to give them better performance — This comes at a price. A Legend Cub accomplishes this without sacrificing quality or comfort.
Aerodynamic mods can make them handle better — End the end is it still a Cub? The Cub is the standard to which everything else is compared. Where do you draw the line? True performance is limited by its wing and this is also where it derives its Cub characteristics.
Modern construction techniques make them easier to build and maintain — The multiplication in quantity and the proprietary nature of new parts puts a steep price on “easier.”
Did CubCrafters redesign (and redefine) the Cub — Today it’s a Cub in name only, and like many others who have before them redefined the Cub, namely: Backcountry, Bushwhacker, Dakota, Husky, Javron, Mackey, Savage, Smith, Tiger, Wag-Aero.
There is no substitute for power! — The same goes for the Super Legend XP. It’s the legendary Cub with extreme performance, and more power than can be fully utilized. The 150-hp Super Cub upped the bar and set the standard. Todays Super Legend HP with its Lycoming engine offers the same power-to-weight ratio.
It enters and exits a roll rate crisply, making quick maneuvers easy to initiate and formation flight fun — The same goes for every Legend Cub. It flies like a Cub for all the right reasons.
The builder shows up for a week of intense fabrication work — The Legend Cub continues to be built from the industry’s best parts making them reliable, available, familiar and affordable. Assembly preempts fabrication and, ultimately, if custom parts are not redefining the standard, they will become obsolete.
Power and a great wing — This is what makes a Cub a true Cub, and a Legend.
The rear seat sling — Making it a single-seat aircraft.
Do you feel that a builder who has invested just a couple of weeks in the build is really qualified to hold the repairman certificate and do the annual condition inspection? There has not yet been a builder who has gone through the program and requested a repairman’s certificate. They all understand the limitations of this kind of building. If a builder does ask, policy is to discourage it — A quick-build program in its true sense is for “education and recreation.” Above all it is to remove limitations and to enable the owner/operator with more tools at his/her disposal. This includes the ability to perform routine maintenance and repairs.
Apples to apples, the premium for the FX airplane will be about $70,000 over an EX with the same equipment — Their extreme Cub comes at an extreme price.
