Bedecorp specialises in design of high-performance aircraft for private ownership; civilian version of a previous product, BD-10, was transferred to Vortex Aircraft Company as the Phoenix. In June 2000, Bede announced it was working on the BD-17 Nugget, an all-metal low-wing single-seater and is actively marketing the BD-6 development of the BD-4. The earlier BD-4 is also available in kit form from Tennessee Valley Aviation Products; Bedecorp offers plans for both.
In May 2001, Jim Bede announced he was considering a further update of his 30-year-old BD-5 design.
In mid-2003, Bedecorp revealed that it is working on the BD-18 two-place derivative of the BD-17 Nugget.
