The Bede BD-5 Micro was a small single-seater with rear-mounted engine and pusher prop that first flew in 1971.   Intended for home-builders, more than 5,000 sets of drawings and kits were sold. Due to consistent troubles with powerplants, only a few were actually built.

A turbojet version, the BD-5J was also produced.
