'Skippy' is a 1977 Amateur Built Thorp T-18 and is powered by a single Textron Lycoming piston engine. The plane is classified as an aerobatic aircraft. On a previous profile of 'Skippy', we discovered from John that the general cruising speed of the aircraft is about 150 knots, with a maximum speed of about 160 knots. 'Skippy' can operate with the economical cruising speed of about 140-145 knots, and at a cruising altitude of 6000-7000 feet, the aircraft has an endurance of about 3 hours flying time.
