THE F1 ROCKET
Eric flys the F1 Rocket, which is a sleeker, modified version of the Harmon Rocket II. The F1 Rocket is a high-performance, kit-built airplane capable of climbing at 3,500 fpm.
Ken flys a Harmon Rocket II, which he built and maintains. This aircraft is a highly modified RV-4. Power is from a Lycoming IO-540, custom built by Progressive Air of Kamloops, British Columbia and produces 300 H.P. at 2800 RPM. The aircraft’s empty weight is only 1146 lbs, which gives it excellent high-speed aerobatic performance and awesome vertical performance. Although not an unlimited aerobatic aircraft such as the Extra 300 or Pitts, this Harmon Rocket will outperform all such aircraft going vertical.
