Design and development

The Comp Air 6 is a stretched and widened development of the four-seat Aerocomp CompMonster which had first flown on 3 April 1995.

The Comp Air 6 has a fore-and-aft fuselage splice to widen and lengthen the cabin from the original design. It is usually supplied in kit form. The design is configured as a conventional high-wing monoplane and may be built with either tricycle or tailwheel undercarriage and may alternately be equipped with floats as the CA6SF, amphibious as the CA6AF, or with skis.[1]
