Glasair Flight

This airplane is so much fun! Fast, aerobatic, and econmic to fly. Here's a little slice of the Glasair life.

Glasair 1RG Fly By 260 MPH - Subaru EG33 Motor
Father-In-Law's first flight in a Glasair aircraft powered by a Subaru Alcyone SVX EG33 six cylinder 202 cubic inch engine. He had never before experienced any "G Loads" and handled them well. Watch us make a high speed missed approach.

Aircraft Emergency And Landing in a Glasair - the impossible turn ???
My Glasair engine is a Subaru SVX EG-33. Six bearings in the planetary speed reduction unit failed during departure. I declared an in-flight emergency and immediately returned for landing. Total flight time was 63 seconds. I failed to plug the camera mike in so you don't hear the engine monitor blaring out alarms or chatter between other pilots and myself. Departure was made with 10 degrees of flaps and remained there until landing with 25 degrees. The buzzer during much of the flight is the "gear up" with "flaps extended" warning horn ... the stall horn never sounded. Speed did drop but the flight never reached critically low speed. Power was intentionally reduced to keep gearbox temps down. I fly patrol flights at 500 ft or less, often 6 to 7 hrs a day. So I do have low level maneuvering experience. Some may call this the impossible turn but power was available during the entire flight.





Aero-TV: Glasair Aviation -Thoughts On The Evolution Of Sport Aviation
A Look At The Changes Taking Place In The Sport Aviation Industry The future of sport aviation is in flux... the old ways of sport flying are rapidly disappearing and a new reality is coming about. With that in mind, ANN's Tom Patton took a few moments to ask one of the veterans of the sport aviation market, Glasair's Scott Taylor, about what he sees as he works in this ever-evolving industry. The generation that used to build every single piece of an aircraft, from plans, rather than a kit has all but disappeared and today's SportPlane builder/buyer is a far more discerning and picky individual. Take the Glasair Sportsman 2 + 2 as a case in point... the machine is surviving because of an aggressive marketing program by the manufacturer that not only emphasizes the ability of the aircraft , but has packaged a fast-build program (a legal one!) to offer the more immediate gratification that today's customer's demand. And it is innovative thinking like the 'Two Week To Taxi' program that has made the company successful while dozens of others have all but disappeared. The Sportsman 2+2 gives its pilots reason to brag about 155-161 mph cruise speeds (180-200 hp), and a Vso of only 48 mph... making the S2+2 an easy STOL performer needing as little as 375 feet for takeoff and 260 feet for landing. Climb rates range from 1950 fpm (solo) to 1000 fpm (gross). At 65% power and standard tanks, the S2+2 will get you 886 sm down the road. It has 1000 pounds of useful load, and a small bench seat behind the two front seats (good for an adult or two small kids... or an amazing load of crap, uh, gear). Even if you fill both seats and gas it all the way up, there's still 300 pounds of useful load left. And its THAT kind of capability that is much in demand by today's SportPlane buyer...

Glasair: Build an airplane in two weeks
Glasair's "Two Weeks To Taxi" program has been approved by the FAA. Pilots can now build their own experimental category "homebuilt" aircraft with the help of Glasair technicians inside of two weeks vacation time.





Aero-TV: Doing It Diesel Style - Glasair's New Diesel Offering
Glasair Makes A Commitment To Alternative Powerplants ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell saw and reported on a lot of interesting things at Sun ‘n Fun 2014, and one of these was a Glasair with a diesel engine in front of the firewall. Glasair Aircraft Production Manager, Benjamin Rauk, explained that Glasair is well aware of the challenges being imposed by the need to find alternative fuels. To face this challenge, they have chosen the Continental Centurion 2.0s diesel engine. Rauk said they are expecting performance numbers to be similar to the 180 H.P. Lycoming powered versions of the airplane with the big difference being in lower fuel consumption. They are expecting the fuel burn to decrease by 3 to 4 gallons per hour. Rauk goes on to explain some of the difference in the installation and operation of the diesel engine. He understands that these differences will be new to homebuilders and Glasair will be providing complete customer support. This video offers the chance to take a look at technology that is moving into both factory-built and amateur-built aircraft. Industry leaders say that diesel will be the technology of the future.
