Welcome to F1 Aircraft.com, the new home of the F1 Rocket and upcoming F4 Raider projects. F1 Aircraft.com is the official dealer for Team Rocket Aircraft.
If you are in the market for unbelievable performance in an affordable homebuilt airplane, the F1 Rocket is exactly the plane you’ve been looking for. This plane can outrun, outclimb, and outperform virtually all GA homebuilt aircraft. Able to climb at 3500 fpm, with a cruise speed over 230 kts, the F1 Rocket is a total performance machine.
The F4 Raider is a virtually identical airframe, but uses a 4 cylinder Lycoming. Performance is still outstanding, but with the feel of a lighter machine. The lighter wing loading gives great handling, while the higher horsepower available from modern 4 cylinder engines really closes the gap with its big brother, the F1 Rocket. Visit our specs pages for more info.
Currently, we have FWF, fiberglass parts, virtually all of the fuselage, and canopy kits available, and are working to bring full kits to the market in the near future. Use the navigation menu at the top to visit our shop, check out our builder blog, and learn more information about the best experimental aircraft on the planet.
Please read the FAQ page before submitting questions. We are gearing up to produce kits again, and, as of August 2017, we are pleased to be taking pre-orders for the new construction, updated F1 empennage kits. They are in production now at our Minnesota shop. We expect empennage kit deliveries to begin on or after October 1, 2017.
QB fuselage status, August 2017: We are also pleased to announce that we have worked out details with several U.S. based “hired guns” who can assemble a QB fuselage for you! Contact Vince for current details. Visit our Builder’s Assistance webpage for more information.
Existing F1 Rocket owners are always welcome to contact us for repair parts. If we don’t have them, we’ll do our best to bump your parts needs to the top of the stack.
EVO wings are not available at this time, August 2017: We are actively working on a new design tapered wing to take its place. There are NO guarantees that this wing will ever be available… but we ARE working on it!
Thanks for your patience and support!
Vince, Blake, Mark, and the rest of the team.
