THE FACTORY CUSTOM AIR QUICK-BUILD KIT

Even with the cost of the factory quick-build kit added to the kit cost, you will discover that all Kolb models are still very competitively priced. With the factory quick-build kit, all structures are completed and ready for covering. Each factory quick build is designated as such on its aircraft serial number. The factory quick build aircraft tends to have a higher resale value. All factory quick builds are meticulously built by Custom Air.


Pictured above is a Mark III Xtra Factory Quick Build
owned by Troy Anderson.

When you order the factory quick-build, the following operations are completed:

  • Wing Alignment. The wings are aligned to fuselage cage and attachment holes drilled.
  • Lift Struts. They are assembled to the correct length..


  • Aileron Hinges. They are aligned with 4 pre-drilled alignment holes for each hinge.
  • Flap Hinges (appropriate aircraft). They are aligned with 4 pre-drilled alignment holes for each hinge.
  • Empennage Alignment. Tail surfaces are aligned and temporarily attached to the fuselage tube.
  • Tail Wire Bracing. The 4 bracing cables are completed with swedged ends.


  • Rudder and Elevator Hinges. They are aligned with 4 pre-drilled alignment holes for each hinge.
  • Fuselage H-Section. It is installed and riveted.
