STODDARD-HAMILTON'S GlaStar had its flying debut at Sun'n Fun, as the company announced that production is under way to meet outstanding orders for 200 of the $19,950 kitplanes. Full kit shipments will not begin until December, but a "fast-track" option, which allows customers to receive the kit in three parts, is already starting with the tail group. The wing group and the fuselage group will follow at three-month intervals. The two-seat GlaStar has a composite fuselage, aluminium foldable wing and convertible tailwheel or tricycle landing gear.
