there with near 1100 hp and a cruise speed of OVER 350 knots (i know, as i
built the thing, and fly in it often)
Legend HWO C-GBEP
Masterpiece of Craftsmanship and very fast airplane. Owner-pilot was very
generous to answer our questions on his visit to South Florida. Sorry that
the camera went out of focus at the peak of acceleration, plane is just too

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.
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.
