Interesting week end


Recommended Posts

Don't know what to be more interested in this weekend, The Diamond Demo flight in a DA42 from Alice to Sydney running on JetA1 that got 18L/Hr per engine, or the students that are developing an electric plane based on a Cessna 162.


I know the Diamond pilot would have been nursing it, but 36L/Hr over that distance is impressive in anyones language for a plane that size.


However, a 450kg MTOW, 80 horsepower electric plane with a two hour range, and scope for four hours range with in the LSA MTOW rules is quite a development.


Now they just have to get it off the page and into the sky!!
