CULP SPECIAL from Aircraft Spruce Canada
  • Contact Us
Everything about the Culp Special was meant to bring about that 1930ís airshow airplane feeling. Working with Hale Wallace of Steen Aerolab, Steve Culp redesigned the Skybolt and developed the modifications necessary for this round engine aircraft. The Culp Special is a fully aerobatic bi-plane using a 360 hp 9-cylinder Russian M-14P radial engine, the same engine used in the Sukhoi and Yak series aircraft. The aircraft is built using tube, wood and fabric construction materials. The two seat aircraft has an empty weight of 1480 lbs., a cruise speed of 150 mph and range of 600 sm. We are a major supplier of materials for the Culp Special.
