Father-In-Law's first flight in a Glasair aircraft powered by a Subaru Alcyone SVX EG33 six cylinder 202 cubic inch engine. He had never before experienced any "G Loads" and handled them well. Watch us make a high speed missed approach.
[SUBARU] 2014 Nürburgring 24h Rennen Digest Movie
The 42nd 24 Hours Nürburgring race was held in Nürburgring, Germany in
The "SUBARU WRX STI NBR Challenge 2014" race car developed on the new WRX
STI platform finished 4th in its class.
Bear witness to the SUBARU STI team's epic 24 hour battle.
This airplane is so much fun! Fast, aerobatic, and econmic to fly. Here's a
little slice of the Glasair life.
Glasair Subaru First Test Start
http://www.GlasairProject.com: I had been building my Glasair I for about 8
1/2 years. I designed this Subaru engine installation. This is the first
test start of the engine. Visit GlasairProject.com
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.
Eggenfellner Subaru First Start
First start of my Eggenfellner Subaru E-6 engine. This is a converted
automobile engine for aircraft use and is capable of producing 200 hp.
Instead of burning just expensive aviation fuel, I will be able to use the
cheaper 92 Octane auto fuel, or as necessary, aviation gas. Repairs and
maintenance of this engine will also be cheaper then a typical aircraft
engine. Being water cooled, it will have far less vibration and will be
quieter then the typical air cooled aircraft engine. It will eventually be
attached to my RV-8A that I am currently building.
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.
