Columbia 400 – 150″ (3.81m)

The Columbia 400 is a full size sporty low wing sport aircraft which for a time held the record for the fastest fixed-gear aircraft in the world.  Even though not designed as a speed machine, our model is capable of both relatively high speed flying, as well as amazingly slow crawls thanks to the planes flaps.  All this translates to just fun fun fun!
