Glasair High Speed Flyby - Aircraft with a Subaru EG33 engine
This Glasair aircraft fly by is powered with an experimental 202 cubic inch Subaru EG33 automoble engine conversion from a Subaru Alcyone SVX sports car. This Glasair airplane has a Marcotte gear reduction unit. Watch and listen as our Glasair 1RG makes a high speed, low fly-by missed approach. This home built aircraft raced in several of the 2011 Sport Air Race League, We were undefeated in its SARL race class. This Subaru SVX powered Glasair won silver in the overall experimental group.
First Flight: Flying the new Zenith CH 650 with UL Power's UL350iS engine
Sweet flyer! Today we had the chance to fly our new Zodiac CH650 B kit
airplane with the brand new 130-hp ULPower engine. This new generation
light aircraft powerplant is a direct drive, air cooled four cylinder
engine with full FADEC control (electronic ignition, fuel injection, etc.)
which is lighter and much more efficient than other engines in its class.
On the instrument panel, we're using Dynon's SkyView glass panel
Next we'll be fine tuning the firewall-forward package and the fiberglass
cowl, (and painting it), as well as adding cool striping to the airframe.
We'll report on the performance, characteristics and figures shortly.

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.
Osprey GP-5 Reno 2010
Here is a short clip of the V-8 powered homebuilt racer 'Osprey GP-5'.
After many years the plane finally made the trip to Reno only to have the
engine let go during a qualifying run. As can be seen in this clip, Lee
Behel managed to get the plane down in one peace, the plane should be back
to try again for the 2011 races. More info can be found here
This airplane is so much fun! Fast, aerobatic, and econmic to fly. Here's a
little slice of the Glasair life.
