The Sirocco is an all-wood, fiberglass- or fabric-covered, and low-wing aircraft that can give the homebuilding enthusiast the wild performance of a small fighter ship. Identified by its “rooster tail,” the Sirocco seats two in tandem fashion and sports retractable landing gear for adding speed. Any 85- to 150-hp engine can be used.
