Design and development
Richard E. Young was the inventor of spiralloy, a directional glass fibre composite material used in high-strength applications. Together with Willis C. Young he designed and built the BY-1, a four-seat equivalent to the two-seat Luscombe Phantom parasol monoplane. After completion, a smaller lower wing was mounted below the fuselage, converting it to a sesquiplane with backward staggered wings. The lower wing also housed the retractable landing gear main wheels.
