Introducing the BD-4C-S SureWings Edition Complete Aircraft Kit consisting of a comprehensive set of integrated equipment for the
best possible flying experience and at an industry disruptive price point.
Our goal was to create the ideal four place kit aircraft offering safety, performance, and affordability. Where
we could advance safety, we did, where we could increase performance without
compromising safety, we did. Lastly, where we could achieve efficiencies to
lower costs without compromising safety or performance, we did.
The result is a safe, capable, and affordable aircraft that
is easy to operate and a joy to own.
We studied accident details and determined that the primary causes of general aviation accidents are
stall/spin events usually related to a lack of situational awareness, VFR flight into IMC typically followed by disorientation, fuel starvation often caused by a lack of proficiency, and mechanical failure, in
that order. As evident by this list, most accidents are occurring because of
pilot errors induced by either insufficient training, fatigue, distractions,
or a combination of factors. Excessive workload is a factor for all of these causes.
While no equipment can ever be a substitute for a properly qualified
pilot, purpose built equipment can provide enhanced visibility, critical information, emergency options,
and ultimately reduce cockpit workload in order to minimize pilot fatigue and reduce distractions. This allows the pilot to spend more time
flying the aircraft and less time managing the individual systems.
