GET TO KNOW THE BUSHCAT
HISTORY

The BushCat is the third and latest generation of the aircraft previously known as the Cheetah, produced by Rainbow Skyreach. It is an aircraft designed around four principles: simplicity, ruggedness, low cost and fun!


The original Cheetah LSA was a robust and reliable workhorse. It quickly gained popularity among the South African bush flying community, and earned its reputation as a fun-flying workhorse. Aerodynamic and ergonomic improvements were later made to the aircraft, as well as modifications from worldwide customer feedback, which resulted in the second generation Cheetah XLS.
It soon became clear that the role of the aircraft was to serve bush pilots in areas that other light sport aircraft just couldn’t handle. As a result, the focus moved toward making the aeroplane tougher than any other in its class, and able to withstand the might of the veld and tundra – as a result the BushCat was born.


Since then, the BushCat has continued to serve its duties as a bush aeroplane and is being successfully used in anti-wildlife-poaching missions in various regions of Africa. More BushCats are on order by conservation entities for this very purpose as it meets the very specific requirements of these missions.
The aircraft is extremely comfortable with the widest cabin in its class and offers generous headroom making the aircraft perfect for all sizes of pilots. Due to its simplistic modular design, the aircraft is extremely easy to work on thus reducing the cost of maintenance and repair to a minimum. Available in nose-wheel and tail-dragger, and amphibious configurations, the aircraft caters to a variety of roles.


The BushCat is the perfect aircraft for training in all of these configurations, and conveniently meets the long term needs of pilots who will fly it into more demanding locations. When the mission revolves around the journey, the BushCat excels at low and slow, or high cruise. With its 7-hour endurance and effective cabin heat, you can safely fly long distances.
