While the single seat Hawk Classic and Arrow models have large baggage areas behind the seat, it can be difficult to place large bulky items back there. The Plus was designed to accommodate the requests of customers needing a larger cargo capacity. The Hawk Plus uses the same fuselage at the two seat Arrow, but with only the front seat. Wing tanks are standard on the Plus, so the rear area is completely unobstructed for hauling cargo, additional fuel tanks, or a passenger in a jump seat. We have put four large filled duffle bags on board and still had room for the small stuff. With the larger engine options offered, up to 250 lbs. can be carried in the rear baggage area.
Another feature of the Hawk Plus is the wing spars, which are stronger than those found on standard single seat models. They are 2 1/4" dia. X .083 (instead of .049) wall thickness to provide the same load factors as the single place models. The Hawk Plus also has the semi symmetrical wing, streamline struts, reinforced boom, wing tanks, fiberglass nose cone, folding tail, and curved overhead and windshield as standard equipment.
