Like Bearhawk’s other models, the Companion will feature a steel-tube fuselage structure and flush-riveted aluminum wings. Max gross weight is expected to be 2,200 pounds and the airplane will be capable of carrying at least 220 pounds in the baggage area. Several engine options will be available, ranging from 150 to 210 horsepower. With a lot of the design work already complete, the first kit is expected to ship in October. Pricing runs $44,000 for the full Companion Quick Build kit. To get one flying would cost from $70,000 (with an overhauled Lycoming O-360 with a fixed pitch prop) to $90,000 (including a new engine with a constant speed prop).
