Designed for simple fabrication, Bill Warwick’s Bantam uses no compound curves and very few simple ones. The cockpit area is a steel-tube structure taking all the wing, gear, and engine-mount loads. The remaining is wood construction with a plywood cover. The Bantam is a single-seat, low-wing plane that can use any engine from 65 to 100 hp. Plans are no longer available.
