The LP1 Aircraft Services General Aviation - Check Out The Airplane Window Molds Being Made
The LP1 aircraft services General Aviation and has the design goal of
"beating the airlines". It's slow work developing an aircraft, as you can
see from something simple like this video where we make the aircraft window
molds out of fiberglass and nomex honeycomb core. It's slow work to make
such a fast airplane! We expect a 385 mph cruise while only burning 14.gph,
either 100LL or Premium auto-gas can be used. These molds are fiberglass
but the entire aircraft is carbon fiber.
The "Flying Millyard" first test run
This is the first test run of my 5 litre V Twin engine based on two Pratt &
Whitney R1340 aircraft cylinders, all other parts are hand made including
the crankshaft, con rods and crankcase wooden moulds, the crankcases were
then cast in aluminium. The engine runs a dry sump with twin pumps, twin SU
carbs, points ignition with manual advance / retard and twin plugs per
LP1 faster taxi test
All landing gear functioning well, no issues. Strong cross wind seemed easy
to deal with.
