with a C-152 4-20-14:  Editorials keep complaining about the decline of private pilots and the need to develop ways to bring people back to flying. In recent years, a lot of focus has been on the advance of the "glass cockpit" along with the new light sport rating. Click here to read Avweb articleBut the light sport seem to have a target audience at both extremes of the scale. They say it's a great plane for the boomers that are having problems passing the 3rd class physical and at the same time they say it's a great plane for flight schools. Then the price tags began shooting close to and over $200,000 and the light sport sales never took off. The final blow came with Piper dropping its light sport and Cessna Clyde Cessnaabandoning the Skycatcher. That leaves a startup flight school with no two seat aircraft that's designated as a plane designed for training except for Cessna's $360,000 Skyhawk. In comes AOPA with an idea to rebuild old C-152's and sell them as new training aircraft to flight schools for $85,000. If the rebuilt C-152's starts selling like hot cakes will the new owner of Cessna (Textron) re-start the C-152 production line? Textron says, "That's not going to happen." Sorry Clyde, it's not part of the corporate culture...

PERSONAL ELECTRIC 200 mph VTOL 4-16-14: Inventors and entrepreneurial people seem to be coming out of the woodwork with ideas about electric airplanes. However, a lot of people don't realize that your passion for your inventive CLICK HERE TO SEE JOBY S2 VIDEOCLICK HERE TO ENLARGEand creative ideas can actually get you government funding, even if you haven't built a working prototype. Not only that, the operational design on the S2 is based on a theoretical advancement of battery and motor density power requirements that currently don't exist. The Joby S2 idea was sold to NASA by demonstrating  a couple of dozen 10 lb models. The idea of, "**Creating aircraft as safe and easy to use as automobiles," continues to be a sought after achievement for people at NASA's Langley Research Center. Some scientist say that the personal aircraft vehicle won't become a reality until the technology reaches a level of advancement for complete and total autonomous operation from take-off to landing. And if they don't include taxiing and parking we'll probably be reading about multi-vehicle accidents at metropolitan areas. One editorial describe the requirement to pilot a plane is that, "You can't drive an airplane, you have to fly it." **Note: In 2012 there were 5,516,000 car crashes with 33,561 fatalities.

ALL ELECTRIC AIRCRAFT BY EADS 4-14-14 Electric aircraft are coming and advances are being made with airframes, electric motors and power supplies. In a recent article in Aerospace Engineering, the E-FAN is shown featuring two electric motors generating 60 kW (80 hp) of power, with variable pitch propellers protected in a shroud. The aircraft has been designed from scratch and not based on an existing design that has been converted for the electric motors. It has two batteries that gives it about an hour of flight. There's a couple of YouTube videos where the first video shows an overview of the construction and the second video shows a test pilot taking the aircraft for its 
  first test flight. Another unique feature on this machine is that the taxiing is done with a drive system on the main landing gear wheel. You'll notice that the propellers are not turning as the aircraft is taxiing out to the runway. CLICK ON THE HYPERTEXT FOR MORE INFORMATION

VFR In April  4-11-14: Could the long wait be finally over? The other day had a beautiful sky and the sun shining but the wind was brisk and made for an interesting ride. The snow is disappearing at Skyhaven and along the coast line. Hangar doors are opening revealing some projects of aircraft in the making. Tony Gallo at Littlebrook was kind enough to let us take a peek in his hanger. Next to his beautiful RV-7A is a single seater that has a VW engine on it. In the back of his hangar is also a Kitfox aircraft with a two cycle Rotax engine on it. It's a two place tail dragger and the wings are made to swing back for easy storage. I mentioned to Tony about the turbulence on the approach to runway 30 on a windy day. He said, "Yah, you ought to try it with a tail dragger."
