Don Cooney’s Prowler is one clean machine with a number of cleverly designed components that set this uncommon American trike apart from the rest, even Europe’s highly engineered brands. The small double-surfaced wing resembles Britain’s Chaser but has been subtly modified to improve the shape. The trike carriage has a elegantly simple rear structure and engine mount supporting a Rotax 447. Prowler’s nosewheel uses a single sturdy strut and hydraulic brake. A simple instrument panel has the right (few) gauges and a holder for a radio. On whole, the Part 103-legal Prowler is one of the most smartly designed trikes in the fleet. Sitting low and comfortable, I can’t wait to fly it. Watch for my article in the December 2005 Kitplanes magazine.
