The Pietenpol Speed Build Kit has been discontinued. For an improved build experience and similar flight characteristics, see the kit for the FT Simple Cub (FLT-1072).  If you would like to scratch build this plane with Maker Foam (FLT-2104), the plans will remain available on the Flite Test Forum.

The Flite Test Mini Pietenpol was designed to honor the vision and benefits of its full-size, two-seat, big brother. It is simple, fun  and easy to fly while also being easy to build. These characteristics were the goal of the original 1928 design by Bernard  Pietenpol. Pietenpol took pride in getting people in the air with minimal investment, skills and tools. His heart reflects Flite  Test’s values in every way. 


 Now Made of Maker Foam the FT Mini Pietenpol is a three-channel design that makes coordinated turns and flies slow and stable. The kit can be built  after dinner and be ready to fly before bed time. The techniques needed to build this kit are not only simple, but carry  across all 40 plus FT designs. Our desire is that this little bird will be the source of many wonderful flights and memories  that will be shared within families for years to come.
