It is with great pleasure we announce that our good Lord has us moving to Jasper Texas.
Our Lord provided a fantastic house (the most iconic house in Jasper, the Fisher Mansion), and an airport (KJAS) that is happy to have us. Celata Aircraft will be closed for the month of September while I move my family down to our new home. Celata Aircraft will remain in Montana while we await the finances God will bring to us so that we can move the shop to Texas. As our Lord wants his children to be debt free (and we have been since 1998), and he works by and through his children, we encourage Christian's to patronize fellow believers businesses when ever possible. That being said, we wait with great anticipation on how our Lord WILL bring the necessary funds for us to build our new 10,000 sqft building at KJAS. We do have a lease option for the short term, but that is also 6 mounts out.

Our philosophy is “More life to all” (Love, Happiness, Success, Wealth, Freedom), if our products do not achieve that goal, we will not sell them. So please, if you are in the market for a new kit, parts, etc. give us a call, and may our Lord Jesus the Christ bless you with “More Life”.

I'm heading to AZ this week only 105 deg 🔥 to inspect a GP-4 with a landing gear failure for repair, if possible. I will keep you posted (unless I melt away in the heat). Who knows, maybe I will loss a 100 pounds. LOL ... See MoreSee Less

Celata Aircraft Up-Date:

We are in an aggressive expansion for 2017 to 2019. We have purchased a 30 acre parcel to build our New (Stage I) 10,000 sqft building, with Stage II, of a second 10,000 sqft building.

Stage I: will be the manufacturing shop with additional equipment (CNC Mills, Lathes, Water Jet, and Sheet Metal equipment, etc.).

Stage II: Will be an Assembly and Show Room, with two Builder Assistance (family) living quarters with very reasonable monthly rates (target rate of $400 a month).

With the new CAD improvements to the Osprey GP-4 (Our new designation is: CA-2 Stiletto), the CA-2 Stiletto will have an improved robust trailing arm landing gear, wet wings (eliminating the fuselage tank, and maintaining the 54 gal fuel capacity), increased rudder for better spin recovery, and more.

We are offering a Special Deal ($10,000 off the base price of $150,000, based on your options) for the next 10 customers who purchase an RTF (Ready To Fly) Stiletto (Serial Numbers: 1801 to 1810).

Terms and conditions: 50% down, with a $10,000 non-refundable cancellation fee, 40% due when air- frame skeleton is complete, balance due on delivery.

We will soon have 3D CAD images to post on our web site and FaceBook page.

Stay tuned for more up-dates and pictures.

We just had a question asked of us: "Do you (Celata Aircraft) do progressive builds?" "Can I buy as I go?" Answer: Sure you can, buy just what ever sub-kit(s) you need at the time for your build. ... See MoreSee Less
