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.

Amazing turbine STOL homebuilt airplane
This is Scott Ehni's custom Zenith CH701 airplane (that he scratch-built from plans) powered by the lightweight Garrett JFS 100-13A turboshaft engine, putting out at least 90 BHP at a prop speed of 3,100 rpm, burning about 12 gph. The small APU will work on almost any liquid that will burn. The best off-airport fuel choice is a mix of diesel and unleaded regular gas as it burns a bit cleaner. Awesome turbine jet engine sound on the experimental aircraft!

BD-10 Homebuilt Supersonic Jet Aircraft (2 of 2)
Note: This is video 2 of 2, Time 9:27-19:13 It was supposed to be a supersonic homebuilt jet aircraft that could cruise at up to M 1.14 on a single GE J85 and a range of about 1,200 miles. It also was fully capable of exceeding a climb rate of 12,000 Feet Per Minute (achieving 10,000 feet from take off in under 40 seconds) Unfortunately, due to the design of the aircraft structurally, there was an accident and Jim Bede canceled the program. The accident related to vertical tail stabilizer failure when the test pilot was testing Mach 1.0+ capabilities. This resulted in structural failure and a fatal crash. The total price of this aircraft was to be well under $1 million. (Give me 2 days locked in a room and I could have solved those issues completely). Anyways, if this aircraft was fixed and made sound structurally, it would be dominating the the market today. http://www.cdmaximum.com

Aero-TV: Sub-Sonex "Teeny " Jet - Re-Engined and Ready for Flight Test
Even Smaller Than A Micro-Jet, 'Monnett's Madness' Has Produced Something Even Cooler Than Usual I think John Monnett is nuts... a pure, certifiable, grade-A, crazy-man... and in the best of all possible ways. His inspired madness has not only brought forth Jet: Re-Esome great airplanes that have furnished the necessary means (and yes, madness) by which hundreds, even thousands, of pilots (overall) have managed to keep their hearts, minds and bodies in the world of flight, but he shows NO signs of slowing down. And for that, aviation is a better (and more affordable) place. One of the most divinely inspired bits of craziness has led John to develop a teeny-tiny single-place jet airplane that will cost less to build and fly than most APUs used by the civil jet fleet. And better yet; the SubSonex single-place jet aircraft is about to resume testing. Following a series of initial high-speed taxi tests, the Sonex Aircraft Hornets' Nest Research and Development team determined that a review and modification of the aircraft design was necessary to achieve acceptable handling qualities for the average pilot. Due to the increased power offered by the new PBS TJ-100 engine selected for the SubSonex, it was determined that a tricycle gear configuration would be needed to increase yaw stability on the ground in the transition phase approaching takeoff speeds. Unveiled at AirVenture 2009 under the banner of the Hornets' Nest Research and Development program, the SubSonex jet was intended as an effort to study the feasibility and marketability of a small, single-place homebuilt jet aircraft. The SubSonex has attracted a tremendous level of interest from the public and aviation press, however, Sonex Aircraft, LLC has not yet decided if the aircraft will become an available homebuilt aircraft product. Following first flight of the aircraft and a full series of flight tests, Hornets' Nest designers plan to construct a second SubSonex prototype with a larger cockpit, enhanced landing gear system and other refinements to further evaluate the aircraft concept.





RV4 - the making of - (Experimental Aircraft)
Process of building an experimental aircraft during the last five years in my garage. It's a long way to the top if you want an RV4.....Credits to my wife Andrea and Willi, the dog, for beeing still here, Pat the personal bucking bar for help and support, my parents for some extra grease, Klaus for infecting me with the RV-virus, Doug Reeves for his fanastic www.vansairforce.net community, Van for his great design and support, Georg for all the tools and for teaching me how to land this thing and all the others on the way. The experience of a lifetime!!

Aero-TV: The Lancair Factory - Where High Performance Begins
Kim Lorentzen Provides a Tour of Lancair's Redmond Facility As composite structures began to emerge in the late 1970s, Lance Neibauer's aviation interest quickly went from hobby to inspiration; having graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design, Neibauer believed he could develop a sleekly designed aircraft that optimized both performance and handling. The resulting Lancair 200 made its aviation debut in 1984, premiering for Oshkosh attendees the following year. Exhibiting such advancement, the Lancair 200 is now displayed at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Museum in Oshkosh, WI. The Lancair team became synonymous with innovative aircraft, including the Lancair 320/360, whose unprecedented design and beauty earned a display place at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 1993, Neibauer launched Pacific Aviation Composites USA (later renamed 'Columbia Aircraft'), eventually developing the type-certificated, piston single-engine Columbia 300. In February of 2003, Neibauer announced the sale of his kit company to Joseph Bartels. Since the sale, Bartels has led the company forward with Neibauers legacy, developing the new Lancair Evolution. Today the company offers seven Fastbuild kits: The Lancair Legacy Fixed Gear, Lancair Legacy, Lancair ES, Lancair ES-P, Lancair IV, Lancair IV-P, and the Lancair Evolution. Located at the Redmond, OR airport, Lancair International operates a 38,000 square-foot facility featuring full service maintenance and builder assist programs; the builder assist program allows Lancair customers to receive hands-on technical assistance and guidance throughout their aircraft build. Currently, the program is offered for all Lancair aircraft. Copyright 2010, Aero-News Network, Inc., All Rights Reserved.
