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...

Aero-TV: Cirrus Reinvents the Turbo - The SR22T All Continental Solution
Cirrus Renews The turbo... With An All-Continental Power Package ANN's Boss and Chief Test Pilot is always happy to get a call about flying a new airplane... and when a most recent call informed him that a new version of the SR22 turbo was on its way to see him, he was VERY interested. Owning an SR22 turbo for a year and a half, such an announcement was bound to cause curiosity as the experience we have had with his machine has been truly exemplary... which begs one to questions -- if it wasn't broke, why change it? Cirrus has some interesting answers to that questions... namely their belief that the airplane is quieter,smoother, more powerful and READY for a number of fuel options that can only make a new owner feel somewhat better with all the uncertainty about the future of 100LL fuel. Over an hour's test flying and some tight air-to-air provided some interesting data... though the real proof of the pudding will come as new owners take possession and use and abuse them in the coming months. Cirrus Aircraft is a member of the global portfolio of Arcapita companies. Its SR20 and SR22 family of composite airplanes incorporate innovative and advanced performance and safety technologies, including the unique Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS™). As of mid 2010, total time on the worldwide Cirrus Aircraft SR-series fleet surpassed 3.5 million hours with more than 40 lives saved to date as a direct result of CAPS being a standard safety feature on all Cirrus aircraft. The Cirrus Aircraft Vision Jet, with nearly 500 production positions reserved, will provide a new personal and regional business transportation solution - the 'personal jet'.

Aero-TV: A Flight To Remember - Oshkosh 2009 Heritage Flight
Are You Getting Ready For Oshkosh 2010? This Will Help! There are so many amazing sights to be seen at Oshkosh in any given year, while the presence of various military demos makes every year even more exciting than the year before. BUT... we have a soft spot in our heart for the Heritage Flights... one of the most inspired collaborations between civilians and the military in our recollection -- and easy the most breathtaking. Check out the USAF A-10 Demo Team that flew some of these flights at Oshkosh 2009 and try not to be awestruck with the pure professionalism and patriotism these airmen display with every move. And better yet, someone DARE to tell me that they aren't having the times of their lives. Yeah... we thought so, too. With all the crap that surrounds us right now, this is the kind of stuff that keeps us proud to be Americans... and flyers. The A-10 West Demonstration Team is a select group of professionals dedicated to showing the extreme capabilities of the A-10 aircraft through exceptional aerial maneuvers. Their mission is to demonstrate the capabilities of the A-10 Thunderbolt II and the professional competence of the US Air Force personnel, to positively affect USAF recruiting and retention efforts, and to promote community and international relations. The A-10 Thunderbolt II has excellent maneuverability at low air speeds and altitude, and is an highly accurate weapons-delivery platform. The aircraft can loiter near battle areas for extended periods of time and operate under 1,000-foot ceilings with 1.5-mile visibility. The wide combat radius and short takeoff and landing capability permit operations in and out of locations near front lines. Using night vision goggles, A-10 pilots can conduct their missions during darkness. The Thunderbolt II can employ a wide variety of conventional munitions, including general purpose bombs, cluster bomb units, laser guided bombs, joint direct attack munitions or JDAM), wind corrected munitions dispenser or WCMD, AGM-65 Maverick and AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles, rockets, illumination flares, and the GAU-8/A 30mm cannon, capable of firing 3,900 rounds per minute to defeat a wide variety of targets including tanks.
