    Two of our primary goals in the development of the Sportsman were to make it much easier to build and structurally stronger (so it could handle the planned significant increase in gross weight to allow much greater utility). Contrary to what some have said, even though the two airplanes look very similar, there are a multitude of differences between the two aircraft which were necessary to achieve these goals. Many structural changes were required for the Sportsman to achieve the desired increase in utility and gross weight. Below, is a partial list of changes and improvements incorporated in the Sportsman for you and others to consider, and hopefully spread around to those who may not know.
