Kenai High Lift Canard

The Kenai's unique nose-mounted canard has a functioning elevator that is integrated with the flight control system.

This provides additional lift, reduces the down-load on the tail, increases empennage elevator effectiveness at slow speeds, reduces the stall speed and improves the stall resistance.

This not only reduces the take off and landing distances, but it provides a safe, flat altitude at slow speeds to increase safety, handling and forward visibility.

During taxi, take-off and landing rollout, the canard also reduces much of the weight supported by the nose wheel weight allowing the airplane to be operated from areas too rough for other tri-geared airplanes.

In an engine out emergency, the canard permits lower touch down speeds which drastically reduce impact forces.

All routine engine maintenance can be done without removing the canard. If removal is required for major engine work, the canard structure is designed so it can be quickly removed and reinstalled.

Powerplant

Increased Power

The Kenai uses a factory Continental IO-550 engine with an 82 inch, three-blade propeller (an 86 inch propeller is optional).

Kenai Powerplant

The Kenai uses a factory Continental IO-550 engine with an 82 inch, three-blade propeller (an 86 inch propeller is optional).

This 300 HP engine has no time limit at full power, is quiet on take off, very fuel efficient when operated LOP and eliminates the issue of carburetor ice thanks to fuel injection.

This engine decreases the take off roll, increases the ROC, service ceiling and speed. All engines come with a full factory warranty.

Aerodynamic Efficiency

Drag Reduction

Each Kenai goes through a drag reduction program to provide higher cruise speeds.

Kenai Aerodynamic Efficiency

Each Kenai goes through a drag reduction program to provide higher cruise speeds. The area requiring the most attention is the landing gear which benefits from an aerodynamic clean up to reduce drag.
