After having displayed my Bearhawk and the Bearhawks of other builders at many airshows, a recurring comment had been irritating me. People walking by would always think the plane with the biggest, baddest looking tires was the coolest and most MACHO. Even our demo pilot, Cate White, would bug me to put some bigger tires on my BH so it would not look wimpy next to the planes with big tires.

Steve built and then flew one of the first customer built four place Bearhawks from scratch, and has now completed and flown the first customer scratch built Patrol.
