This world famous speedster of the American home-built sector could reach speeds of 200 MPH.  Originally designed in the 1950s by the air racer Steven Wittman, it graced the skies internationally with radical high speed performance. Thanks to its extremely inexpensive construction and wooden wings, it provided regular people with a fun, enjoyable way of flying.

This package features three aircraft - the Wittman Tailwind W-8 Series, the W-10 Series and the Tri-Gear W-10. The W-8 series has both versions of landing gear - regular and wheel skirts. The two W series aircraft both fly slightly differently, with the W-10 having a high performance engine and the W-8 having a more common power plant.  The W-10 will cruise at 180 MPH (not Knots) and will max out at 200 MPH.  The W-8 cruises at 140-160 MPH and maxes out at 180 MPH.

Instrument panels also differ between the two models.  The panel in the W-10 is much more elaborate and includes an avionics stack, while the W-8 is equipped with minimal instrumentation needed for flight.
