    4 Seats? Low wing? Composite? Yes, yes and yes.

    The KIS Cruiser was a reeeeeaaaaally nice aircraft: Bob Reed's KIS Cruiser Project

    I still scratch my head trying to figure out how this didn't become hugely popular...

    I fly a KIS Cruiser and yes it is a REEEEEAAAAALLY nice aircraft. I hope it will eventually become a hugely popular aircraft in the not too distant future. Check out our airplane specifications (N819PR) at: KIS4 Specs

    A design this good is hard to keep down. :cool:

    how to be popular? when the company producing kits are no more in business? I think only if there is a plan available or a stable kits production can make the aircraft popular

    The corrosion is a function of the alloy as well. These days most of the aluminum specified is pretty good against corrosion. You could certainly run the question by zenith and you could also paint, to help prevent corrosion as well as possibly cover it? (though I think you have to be careful that the material breathes). Also, there are some 'relatively cheap portable shed/garages that you might be able to get to put the plane in depending on your house location/restrictions.

    How about the Wheeler Express? Out of business but there are kits still around. Four seats, low wing, fast.
