Indy Aircraft Ltd. opened in July 2005 - taking over Golden Circle Air and the T-Bird design and manufacturing. The T-Bird design has been around for over 20 years with over 2,000 aircraft sold.The original company began in the early 1980's and was known as Motorized Gliders of Iowa. That name was later changed to the Teratorn Company, which then became Golden Circle Air.
Bret and Jean Kivell brought Golden Circle Air from DeSoto, Iowa to Independence, Iowa to be alongside their other company - East Iowa Plastics. Now Indy Aircraft and East Iowa Plastics work together to enhance light sport aircraft to increase options, safety, and performance.
From single and 2 seat models to extended cargo models, Indy Aircraft Ltd. specializes in these types of aircraft. Indy Aircraft Ltd. continues to manufacture an aircraft that's remarkably similar in basic construction to the original T-Bird Models.
