Badland Aircraft is a company that looks to manufacture and sell aircraft capable in claims of "taking off from anywhere and traveling much like a bird would". The company was established in 2016, and is owned by Chris Deuel.
The company provides kit packages to build personal, custom airplanes. Badland Aircraft offers several different kit packages such as the F1 UL Base Kit, the F2 Flyer, F3 Speed, F4 Monster, and the F5 Fujita. The F1 comes with an airframe fully welded with chromoly tubing, an airspeed indicator, any required hardware, flooring and seat patterns, cover adhesives, fuel tank, hoses, fittings, valves, stabilizers, a rudder, landing gear, lift and jury strut material and fittings, control cables and rods, pre-assembled wings, windshield material, and a detailed assembly manual to put it together. The company also offers technical support for assembly.
Each kit from the F1 to the F5 rises in price value as each kit comes with certain upgrades too. The F1 comes at a price of $11,700 and the F5 is available at a price of $28,500. The F5 comes with a full titanium airframe, titanium landing gear and tail feathers, a removable seat pad, oversized tires, and 8" wheels.
