The Pietenpol Sky Scout, a delightful golden-era home built, was designed by Bernard H. Pietenpol in the late 1920’s and was a spin off from the more familiar Air Camper. Stevens AeroModel derived this scale park flyer directly from the original 1933 Flying Manual with the intent of producing a comprehensive and highly pre-fabricated quick build laser cut kit. The Stevens AeroModel construction method along with highly engineered laser cut parts allow even beginner to novice modelers to achieve above average results.

With a 48 in. span and flying weight of only 24 oz., the Stevens AeroModel Sky Scout makes for a solid performer at the local park and, with the optional quick-change laser cut float package, you may find yourself spending more time down at the local watering hole than on the flight line at your club field!

Great flying plane. An easy build. My first full kit plane. I have built sticks before. This scale plane goes together extremely well and the instructions are very clear. I am ready to start building another kit.
Charles Welkie (welkie@telus.net)
This was a very refreshing build made easy by perfectly fitting parts, excellent instructions and clear, helpful photographs. The aircraft comes out at the weight published and flys beautifully. It is especially fun on floats!
In any kind of breeze I fly with a 2150maH pack - the extra bit of ballast helps settle her down nicely.
Highly recommended!
