Micro Mong experimental amateurbuilt lightsport.

Gerald Olenik of Green Sky Adventures had a recently completed Micro Mong single seat, experimental, amateur built bi-plane on display at the HKS booth at Sun N Fun 2012.

The Micro Mong is another one of Ed Fisher's aircraft designs (other designs include, the Skylite, Zippy Sport, and Flitplane, Ed was inducted into the EAA Homebuilt Hall of Fame in 2011). Gerry purchased the design and manufacturing rights to the from Ed in the mid 90's.

The Micro Mong features a welded 4130 chromoly steel fuselage, covered in conventional aircraft covering materials.

The wings use aluminum tube and the ladder construction, with tubular front and rear spars and compression struts, with aluminum ribs, covered in standard aircraft fabric covering.


The Micro Mong can be built from plans, approximately 250 sets of plans have been sold, the plans come on an SD card, with about 500 pictures, which can be viewed on a computer. The Micro Mong can also be purchased in kit form. Building a Micro Mong usually takes from 350 to 500 hours. In the kit form all the welding is one for the builder. No special tools are needed to complete the build, and no jigs are required.

The original prototype Of the Micro Mong flew in 1993 on a 28 hp single cylinder

Rotax 277 two-stroke engine. Later models have been equipped with the Rotax 503. The unit on display at Sun N Fun 2012 was powered by the HKS 60 hp twin cylinder four stroke 700e aircraft engine. Gerry has always had a "fascination with small four stroke aircraft engines, and has wanted to put one on a Micro Mong."

The reasons for this were Gerry wanted "better reliability", "longer engine life", and "better fuel economy." The HKS powered Micro Mong cruises along at 75 mph at 4700 rpm and burns about 1.9 gallons of fuel per hour, and 90 mph at 5400 rpm. it consumes just under 3 gallons per hour! Gerry finds that on the average week of flying the HKS uses about 5 gallons of fuel!

The Micro Mong uses standard stick and rudder control, with a left hand throttle and center stick. It has a steerable tailwheel for ground control, which requires a pilot to do slight S turns while taxing.
