Experimental Subaru EG33 powered Glasair SARL aircraft fly by
This Glasair 1 RG is powered with an experimental 202 cubic inch Subaru EG33 automoble engine conversion from a Subaru Alcyone SVX sports car. The Glasair airplane has a experimental Marcotte gear reduction unit. Watch and listen as our Glasair 1RG makes a high speed, low fly-by missed approach. This home built experimental 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. brz
Verhees Delta, a FAST, tiny homebuilt airplane
It is small, only 50 HP but ...has cruise speed of 220 km/h. Its single
retracting wheel gives the idea it is tricky on the ground, but it is not.
Also stable in the air.
Uses 13 liters/h at cruise speed. Has tank of 50 liters. So ...ideal to
Aerochia LT-1 : The First Flight
The LT-1 made its first flight Friday afternoon May 14th, 2010 at
Jacqueline Cochran regional airport in Thermal California. Test Pilot Len
Fox was enlisted last minute to make the maiden flight after Darryl
Greenamyer was sidelined with a rib injury. Len spent the morning reviewing
the aircraft with designer/builder Andy Chiavetta and performing engine
runups. After a quick lunch at El Grecko Loco (which definitely did not
help settle any pre-flight butterflies) it was back to the field for a fast
taxi test, and followed shortly by its first flight.
Aerochia would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Len for making the
last minute trek from Oregon for the first flight as well as Penny at
Tradition Aviation for giving us the run of hanger A.

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...

2014 Subaru Forester off-road snowy Misadventure & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT is bigger and
more fuel efficient than the previous model...but is as off-road worthy? We
decided to find out in one of the worst Colorado snow storms of the year by
taking it up our usual test trail. Of course the turbo-charged Forester 2.0XT that we tested came
with all-season 18 inch tires and a new CVT transmission. In our real
world testing we review the car as it is provided to us by the
manufacturer. We also drive the car the way most buyers will and that means
with the stock tires. So how did the new 2014 Subaru Forester do in the
snowy Colorado Rockies? Watch this video to find out.
