Abaris Golden Arrow

The Abaris Golden Arrow is a homebuilt civil utility aircraft manufactured in kit form. It is an unusually large aircraft for its type, able to seat six people (including the pilot) and, also unusually in a homebuilt plane, powered by a turboprop engine.

The Golden Arrow is of conventional monoplane configuration, with retractable tricycle undercarriage and a T-tail. It is largely of composite construction.

As of 2003, the first aircraft was not yet complete. As of 26 January 2008, the official Abaris Aircraft website does not list any progress on the aircraft.

The craft derives its name from a legendary arrow, carried by the ancient Greek sage Abaris the Hyperborean. The arrow, given to Abaris by the sun-god Apollo, conferred upon its bearer the power of flight.
