Default Tow Plane Finder

I was looking for a thread of available tow planes. If you know of thread please let me know.
In the mean time I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of available Aero-Tow Planes and Pilots.
I'll start with my entry.

I have a Bidule 111 with a DLE 120cc. Plenty of power for most sailplanes.

I also have a very modified "Avistar 30cc" for mid size and smaller sailplanes. It has a DLE 55cc engine, much wider landing gear, and enlarged tail feathers for better control.
Both planes also have tow hooks underneath the fuselage for banner towing. If your event wants to display a banner in the air these planes can do the job. Please contact me for banner tow information and proper rigging.

I'll travel within a 200 mile radius of my home.

Chicago, Joliet area.
