If it would be a good airplane they would hardly sell it after only 200 hours, would they? The red leather interior alone would be enough reason not to buy it
So airplanes sold after 200 hours are bad airplanes? How much do you know about the reasons why they sell it? A fed leather interior was very popular in many classic cars and planes. Mercedes 300 SL gullwimg, for example. Of course you don’t have to like it, but i don’t think it’s tasteless.
I believe Adam has originated threads here and there on this plane… as I remember he met the builder and liked the whole thing.
It’s a beautiful plane. The builder Oscar is just that, more of a builder and inventor than a flyer. He loses interest once it’s done. He’s working on his new rocket with a 1000hp PT6 that will only carry 4 passengers and have a shorter cabin, again based on the airframe of the Aerostar. Should be a screamer.
unfortunately “experimental” – day VFR only for most of Europe. Is there still a ban on carrying more than two?
I wonder how he solved removing the engines from the wings and rebuildingthe wings … and some other issues. It must have been one hell of a project! But to me the result looks fascinating and cool. Two times the payoad of a Meridian? Wow!
