Ray Stits (1921-2015) was a leader in the homebuilt aircraft movement. In 1948 Stits designed and built the SA-1A (monoplane) and SA-2A Skybaby (biplane) on a dare from another pilot to prove that he could build the world's smallest human-carrying airplane. Stits donated the SA-2A to the National Air and Space Museum in 1972 and this aircraft is currently on display at the Udvar-Hazy Center. Beginning the 1950s Stits designed a series of small monplanes as homebuilt aircraft, selling the plans and construction materials as Stits Aircraft Corp. Stits was the creator of the Stits Process, known today as the Poly-Fiber aircraft coating process, and a was founding member of Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter One at historic Flabob Airport, Jurupa Valley, CA.
