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: Antique Dream Machine - John Swander and His Waco UEC
An Amazing Restoration Is The Dream Of A Lifetime One of the prettiest sights to be had at the 2009 AAA/APM Fly-In and Convention was a stunning Waco UEC brought back to life by its owner, pilot, and caretaker, John Swander. This rare cabin WACO is one of the oldest of it's type and calls DeSoto, KS, home. John has been rebuilding antique airplanes since 1979 and the his 1932 Waco UEC Cabin Biplane came together after a decade long rebuild, taking to the skies, once again, in 1999 and winning Grand Champion kudos at Oshkosh 2000. And it was but one of the MANY amazing sights at AAA 2009. Founded in August of 1953 by Robert L. Taylor, the Antique Aircraft Association is the world's oldest organization specifically devoted to antique and classic aircraft. Committed to "keep the antiques flying," the AAA has dedicated its fifty-six years to the preservation of this "Golden Age of Aviation." AAA members have access to the organization's vast historical library, as well as its large assortment of spare engine and aircraft parts available to assist in restoration projects. With twenty active chapters across the U.S., the AAA works closely with many type clubs including the Interstate, Culver, Corben, Fairchild, Great Lakes, Pietenpol, Rearwin, Parakeet, Hatz, and Travel Air clubs. The organization's headquarters, located near Blakesburg, Iowa, at Antique Field, serves as a site for numerous type club fly-ins throughout the season. Antique Field is also the home to the Airpower Museum, Incorporated (APM). Featuring a large collection of aircraft, the facility has over 20,000 square feet of display and storage space. Every year over Labor Day Weekend, the Antique Aircraft Association holds its annual AAA/APM Fly-In and Convention. This year, the event celebrated the early days of corporate aviation, themed as "Corporate Wings." In all, over 360 aircraft, including an impressive turnout of Howard aircraft, visited Antique Field during the fly-in. Copyright 2010, Aero-News Network, Inc., All Rights Reserved.

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'.
