Subaru EG33 SVX Glasair 1RG - Low Fly By - Four Miles a Minute -
A friend caught our Glasair on this high speed low fly-by with his cell phone camera. Not the best quality, but the Subaru SVX EG33 engine sounds great. This experimental aircraft is a Glasair and is powered by an aero conversion 202 cubic inch six cylinder EG33 engine from a Subaru Alcyone SVX automobile. See the 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
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...

Subaru SVX LS-L Alcyone 1 Owner 3.3L F6 Flat-Six Coupe 1 Owner AWD Start Up
Test Drive Review http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com Here is a very nice 1 Owner
Subaru SVX that has the big 3.3L Flat 6 Engine and AWD. This car was
surprisingly quick and has a lot of power. Plenty of power for anything you
need and still gets good gas mileage. The exterior of this car is very nice
and a nice bright red color which you dont' see very often on these cars.
You don't see many of these cars period. The paint is nice but faded on the
top surfaces. This car is straight as can be. Comes with all the books and
you can really tell the previous owner really cared for this car. The
interior is just immaculate with the leather seats and suede interior. The
interior shows very little wear and is as clean as can be. This is a very
nice car that I would just drive like it is or you can fix it up and have
yourself a very nice car.

The Subaru Alcyone SVX, also known outside of its home market Japan as the
Subaru SVX, is a two-door grand tourer coupé that was sold by Subaru, the
automobile manufacturing division of Japanese transportation conglomerate
Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI). Produced from 1991 to December 1996, it was
FHI's first attempt to enter the luxury/performance car market. Its
intention was to combine two seemingly contradictory elements—comfort and
performance. The name "Alcyone" (pronounced "el-SIGH-uh-nee") refers to
the brightest star in the Pleiades star cluster, on which the Subaru logo

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.
