    Detailed Description

    D-25 New Standard 5 Passenger Biplane Project. For a flying rebuild or museum display. Rare opportunity to complete one of the few New Standard Biplanes in the world. The New Standard was considered the greatest of the Barnstorming Aircraft. It is the only biplane that is allowed to carry 4 passengers for hire since it is a standard category aircraft. This means more revenue for ride-hops at basically the same operating cost of a Stearman that can carry only one passenger. The New standard was one of the first aircraft with the fuselage frame made of aluminum. The giant size of the aircraft would make it a great feature in a museum or terminal display.
    This project includes complete paperwork. New aluminum fuselage frame fitted with with rudder pedals, trim system ,control stick and elevator bellcrank, New aluminum pilot seat and  four passenger seats , New fuel tanks,  flying/landing wires, New fuselage fittings, new wing fittings, drag and anti-drag wires , Adaptable engine mount, main landing gear and New Standard Blueprints. It needs all the woodwork and fabric. It was last certificated with a Wright 975 - 440 HP Engine or can be fitted with a Wright R-760-8  engine. Owner is retired from the Airshow circuit and is liquidating this and other antique engines, props and parts. Original engine was a Wright J-5.This is the second professionally built fuselage with metal fittings the owner had. The other is a complete flying aircraft sold in 2019. I am selling it for the owner.  Call Henry Lowe Macon Ga. 478-788-3491
