Featured Affordable Flying Center aircraft: TEAM Air Bike
By Dana Heimos

The TEAM Air Bike is intended for fun, open-air, low speed flying. This one-of-a-kind aircraft combines classic building techniques with a rugged, steel design that provides docile handling for an enjoyable flying experience. Paul Fiebich built the TEAM Air Bike parked in the Affordable Flying Center. Fiebich began building the ultralight in the fall of ’96 and finished in July 1998. It took him about 650 hours total building time, with a building cost of about $5,600.

"My Air Bike provides a fun, inexpensive way to go flying," Fiebich said. "Building this aircraft has really opened up a new arena of activity for me." Powered by a Rotax 52-hp engine swinging an adjustable carbon fiber prop, the TEAM Air Bike cruises at 55-60 mph at 5800 rpm with a top speed of 80 mph. The wing span measures 26 feet and the length measures 16 feet. The empty weight is 342 pounds.
