Hello dear Kitfox builder . . . If you want to know more about "French Swiss Experimental" you can go: www.rsarl.com. A happy pilot, sure: a "Kitfox pilot" kind regards Vincent

Great pictures and beautiful Kitfox. The picture of the glider in background raises a question for me. Has anyone in a Kitfox ever towed a glider up? I've seen it done in 60hp Cubs why. Not a Kitfox?

Natalie and I were considering putting a tail hook in the kitfox as we both have glider back grounds. It would tow better than a citabria I imagine.

The best reason is because the FAA doesn't allow it for experimental/amateur-built aircraft. Of course, Kitfoxes registered outside of the U.S. are governed by different laws

Wrong on 2 accounts. First, if the Kitfox is the SLSA version, it is not an experimental and can tow for hire. Second, experimentals can tow but the pilot may not be paid for doing so, as experimentals cannot be used for commercial purposes.
