The Aviat Eagle II is an aerobatic sporting biplane aircraft that has been produced in the United States since the late 1970s. Developed from the Pitts Special design, it is marketed in kit form for homebuilding. The Eagle II is a small aircraft of conventional configuration with single-bay, equal-span staggered biplane wings braced with an I-strut. The pilot and a single passenger sit in tandem underneath a large bubble canopy. The tailwheel undercarriage is fixed, with the mainwheels housed in streamlined fairings. The fuselage and tail are constructed of steel tube, with the forward fuselage skinned in metal and the rear fuselage and tail in fabric. The wing structure is wooden and fabric covered. By 1985, over 600 kits had been sold, and over 250 aircraft were known to have been completed.
