Elbert Leander "Burt" Rutan is an American aerospace engineer created the Rutan Aircraft Factory in California in 1974. He designed and developed prototypes for several aircraft, mostly intended for amateur builders. His first design, executed while he was still Director of Development of the BD-5 aircraft for Bede Aircraft in Newton, Kansas, was the VariViggen, a two-seat pusher single-engine craft of canard configuration. The canard would become a feature of many Rutan designs, notably the very popular VariEze and Long-EZ. He went on to form Scaled Composites which has become one of the world's pre-eminent aircraft design and prototyping facilities.
