Not an endorsement, but I was doing a search on the internet and found this site. Looks like they've made quite a few different canopies.... Acro Sport 1, Christian Eagle, Pitts S2, Starduster, Ultimate 10-200, and Skybolt
in addition to many single-wing homebuilts.

Also a few tips on how to cut, fit and clean your canopy.


Always good to have options.

I highly recommend Todd's canopies based on my experience with Todd. He made a custom bubble for my F1 Rocket and it was perfect.

If you visit Todd's website, you will see my Rocket on his homepage near the bottom.

Todd made me a new canopy for my Eagle a few years back (the one on his website). Excellent product and very reasonably priced. I will use home for future canopy needs.

Anyone had any Luck at Todds. I have made three attempts at contact, and even spoke to him, but no luck getting a quote or approximate production time.

Any recent success or failure to report?

Got my S1 canopy from airplane plastics. Todd said he couldn't make an S1 canopy with his process. Very happy with the airplane plastics quality, price and service.

Todd was killed in June in a crash. His 12 year old daughter survived.

Does anyone have drawing showing the installation of a canopy that opens to the right. Including the hinges, release process etc.
Appreciate any information for the installation process.
This is Tommy Meyer and I am fixing to install my new canopy from Airplane plastics for my Big Toot and will have to fold it open to the right. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Smizo side hinged a single canopy on his Acro Sport and covered it in his build thread. Could give you some ideas.

I needed a replacement canopy for a Laser, and initially ordered one from Todd. Shortly afterwards, he was killed.

I later dealt with Airplane Plastics, and they made one for me. Not installed in a frame yet, but it looks good.
