http://www.ultralightflyer.com – Vickers Wave amphibious light sport aircraft, by Vickers Aircraft. You cannot ride a Wave today, but 2017 may be the breakout year for this impressively-configured LSA seaplane entry from the other down-under country of New Zealand. Indeed, principal, Paul Vickers -- the namesake of Vickers Aircraft -- wrote at the end of 2016, "Great strides have been made in the past months here at Vickers. We may have appeared quiet but we have been very busy preparing for 2017, which will prove to be an incredible year." Paul confirmed, "We have secured funding from the USA that will allow us to expand our operations." He continued, "New machinery for carbon fiber part production and larger premises will streamline our processes." He noted that additional staff was hired to fill key roles to ensure smooth production and timely deliveries. "I traveled to various U.S. states in 2016 to personally meet with potential investors and found the ideal partner in Florida," said Paul. "Our new partner brings not only a vast wealth of aviation knowledge but incredible American business experience which will ensure a strong and responsible Vickers brand in the USA." "In this new temperature controlled environment production carbon fiber parts are being prepared in accordance with manufacturing procedures that have been finely tuned over years of development," he explained. "It has always been of extreme importance to maintain control, quality, and cost over all components for the Wave. This has allowed for a modest investment and will result in an actual aircraft that will be both deliverable and affordable provided by an aircraft company that is sustainable." "We have been developing the processes to produce conforming production components and we are very close to beginning structural testing on production sub-assemblies such as the wing carry thru and rear empennage." Nearby you see a recently infused carbon fiber mold insert just prior to trimming and finishing. TenCate Advanced Composites USA has joined Vickers as a strategic partner to supply carbon fiber materials for Wave. "TenCate is pleased to support Vickers Aircraft with carbon fiber epoxy prepreg and ancillary composite materials for the development and production of their Light-Sport Aircraft," said David Clarke, CEO of TenCate. "We look forward to their successful introduction of this unique aircraft platform." "Working with TenCate's superior products will enable us to produce an aircraft which will be of the highest quality yet help keep weight within LSA specifications," noted Paul. "TenCate is a leader in the aerospace composite industry and having them work with us to bring our aircraft to market will help make Wave exceptional." Most readers know that carbon fiber is wonderful to combine strength with low weight but preparing the material for use on aircraft is an exacting effort. "We have now acquired a critical part of our production process, a Zund carbon fiber cutting center," said Paul. The Zund cutting machine can cut carbon fiber at an astonishing three feet per second, ink mark part numbers and bar codes to integrate individual pieces of carbon fiber into our inventory system to ensure full traceability and correct placement during laminating." He added that the Zund cutter has the capacity to produce parts for more than 100 aircraft per year. "We looked globally at other industry leaders and concluded that Zund was a stand out within composite manufacturing companies," reported Darryn Todd, VP of Composites for Vickers. Along with the fresh funding Vickers has also appointed the American distributor for Wave. "We are very pleased to have such strong support from the USA," exclaimed Paul. "We are equally excited to have appointed a U.S. distributor in Florida, the ideal location for Vickers Aircraft USA." http://www.ultralightflyer.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © The Ultralight Flyer Video Magazine.

MVP Aircraft – from MVP Aero the Most Versatile Aircraft in the light sport aircraft category?

MVP Aircraft – from MVP Aero the Most Versatile Aircraft in the light sport aircraft category?

http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – Dan Johnson talks to Darrell Lynds about the MVP from MVP Aero. The MVP or Most Versatile Plane is the latest entry into the ever expanding amphibious light sport aircraft market. The MVP does not put more features (and weight) on an already challenging, weight-restricted airplane instead the design required a paradigm shift from traditional thinking. This different approach is the key to understanding just how the factory is going to achieve the goals set for the MVP. In the simplest of terms, the MVP is not an amphibious airplane that has all of these new features added to it. Instead, it is a highly integrated collection of features, pieces and parts that happen to become an airplane. Once the old adage, “an airplane is 10,000 compromises flying in formation” had been fully abandoned, this new attitude begins to reveal amazing opportunities, synergies, and relationships. Ultimately, the new features become completely intertwined with the parts that make up the airplane. As a result the MVP delivers a diverse feature-set while also delivering a respectable useful load. Flanking both sides of the MVP are nose to tail catwalks that enable movement all over the MVP for on the water preflight of the engine, inspection of the tail and the wing’s aft mounted control surfaces. Or, one can simply access the aft fuselage to deploy and relax in a fitted hammock that stretches between the engine pylon and the tail. The MVP’s most compelling feature is that it transforms into a versatile floating platform. The canopy moves upwards and back on a 4-bar link to sit atop the engine pylon. This frees up the nose of the MVP to resemble the front of a classic bass-type fishing boat. With the canopy open, the MVP’s engine can be run so as to continue to shore or dock, or to motor along to the next cove or fishing spot. This configuration also enables a passenger to step up onto the forward deck to assist in docking and beaching duties. Excellent stability of the hull keeps the MVP relatively flat as both occupants move about. And to create the perfect fishing or observation perch, either seat can be repositioned onto a pedestal up on the forward deck. The Instrument panel is a self-contained pod that pivots up and out of the way, not only to help protect it from dripping swim suits and flip flops, but also to provide a way to create a larger flat deck. Four hinged folding panels (called the origami deck) stow atop the forward deck under the canopy and are able to be deployed in two halves to fully cover the seats of the cockpit, enabling a completely flat floor from the bow to the back of the baggage compartment. This floor is level whether floating on the water, or parked on level ground. This amazingly big surface on a relatively little airplane is just large enough for two people to stretch out and sleep. Deploying a fitted tent and inflating a fitted air mattress makes spending the night a delight. Traveling from marina to marina on a big adventure couldn’t be easier with the MVP’s on-the-water folding wings. Taxi up close and shut down the engine. Fold the wings, and propel the MVP towards the slip with use of an on-board trolling motor. Integrated within the bilge, is a useful bow thruster to help make docking a breeze. With all these features, one might expect there to be compromises made to the flight and handling qualities of the MVP. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The MVP should prove to be a top performer and a joy to fly in its class. High-aspect ratio/high lift wings, excellent stability, crisp controls, comfortable seats and excellent visibility will all contribute to making the MVP a sheer joy to fly. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.

Super Petrel LS amphibious light sport aircraft bi-plane from Edra Aeronautica.

Super Petrel LS amphibious light sport aircraft bi-plane from Edra Aeronautica.

http://www.superpetrelusa.com – Super Petrel LS amphibious light sport aircraft bi-plane from Edra Aeronautica. The Super Petrel LS was from Edra Aeronáutica made its debut in the LSA mall In Paradise City at the EAA Sun and Fun convention. This sleek amphibious biplane is manufactured in Brazil. The Super Petrel is being imported and distributed in the United States by Brian Boucher from Florida Lightsport Aviation located in the Daytona Beach area. The 1st Super Petrel LS, which has already passed the Brazilian LSA standards which are very similar to the US standards, arrived in the US just before The US Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida. Unfortunately enough hours hadn't been flown on the aircraft to allow it to make the trip to Sebring. Since Sebring Brian has flown the Super Petrel over 50 hours, and so was able to fly the aircraft over to Sun and Fun. While the 1st Super Petrel has been registered as an experimental aircraft and FAA audit has been scheduled for June of 2013 so that future Super Petrel's will be available as ready to fly light sport aircraft The craft features side-by-side seating in a 45 inch cabin, in a pusher configuration, it has a steerable nosewheel with a center mounted brake handle. Brian reports "that the craft has probably 10 times as many water landings as it does on hard surface runways." "my partner who takes off from Spruce Creek had so regularly heading for local lakes where he must take off and land for 2 or 3 hours on water before heading back to Spruce Creek." Because the Super Petrel LS is a biplane, with a very short wingspan of only 28 feet, it is very easy to maneuver when coming in and out of the water, or for docking. Brian reports " it is a very simple aircraft to fly, it is very stable, has no flaps, and uses a single lever manual retract system." It uses a standard stick and rudder control system with dual sticks, dual rudder pedals and a center mounted throttle. The retract lever is also centrally located between the 2 seats. The Super Petrel LS is powered by the Rotax 912 100 hp engine and takes off from water in 8 to 10 seconds. When equipped with the Rotax 914 it can get off the water in his little as 5 seconds! This quick takeoff can be attributed to the use of 2 wings. Initially the lower wing provides a ground effect cushion during the takeoff run, then when ready to lift off the top wing, which is at a different angle of attack takes over. Cruise at 5200 RPM on the Rotax 912 ULS comes in at just over 100 miles per hour. Stall is very uneventful with the aircraft basically just mushing. For landing an approach speed of about 65 mph is used. Edra Aeronáutica has been in operation for over 20 years and there are over 300 Petrel aircraft are flying worldwide. http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com Video and Audio content is Copyright © Sport Aviation Magazine.
