The Sky Arrow was Chesapeake Sport Pilot's first light sport airplane and is still one of our best. It quickly earned the nickname "the arm chair in the sky" due to its tandem seating configuration and unparalleled visibility.
As a basic trainer, the plane is docile with barely noticeable stalls. It glides forever but performs impressive slips. A lack of left turning tendency makes take-offs a snap. Dual flight controls allow the instructor to step in from the back seat if assistance is needed.
The Sky Arrow is the preferred choice of trainer for our short customers as even the shortest students can easily see out and reach the rudder pedals. It easily accommodates all customers up to 200 pounds and some customers slightly larger than that, depending on how they are built.
An added fun bonus for this plane is that the back windows can be removed for flight making even the hottest summer day enjoyable in the Sky Arrow.
