Lycoming Brumby

Recommended Posts

2 weeks and the 610 high wing Brumby is ready for delivery, yes it's on it's way. Paul from Brumby said it will be flying next week, what great news. Paul said some check hours need to be flown and then it's mine .

 

It is being held up because of a recall on the ignition. The first lycoming 233 for Brumby is here and it looks gr8.

 

I viewed the finished paint job last week and phil and Paul had just finished the cowls , move over mr. Cessna

 

The best LSA is here.

As I said in a prev post, the Brumby 610 is an impressive product, and I predict it'll be a winner for sure. At Natfly the little Cessna Flycatcher just sat there forlorne looking, whilst all the other flashy stuff had constant lines of attention, including the Brumbys. Probabily not a lot wrong with the Cessna, (especially after all the mods and testing) however the design just looked dated against the competition, even before it got off the lot...........................................................Maj...109_groan.gif.66f71fc85b2fabe1695703d67c904c24.gif

The Cessna should be OK after the testing. Pity the cost keeps going up but I reckon a new 172 would cost about 370K. Nev

I'm visiting Cowra in August and hope to get a demo in the 610. It looks the goods as a more robust and reliable trainer. Currently thinking it'sgoing to be between the 0-233 Lycoming and the Rotax 912iS for an engine. Both have strong points.

 

happy days,

Poteroo, What a great choice there. One thing that impressed my with the 610 was the interior room and appointments....some serious thought went into cabin sizing. Even more room than a good Lightwing !...Definitly taking things to the next level for us. Get one before the price goes stupid, as demand should be good.................................................................Maj...012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif

Hi poteroo,

 

I have a Brumby 610 with the rotex 912 uls in it.

 

Give me a call on 0448373132 if you want to ask anything.

 

Actually it will be in Cowra for August as I'm putting bigger tyres on it, so stick your head in the hanger and check it out if you like.

 

I'm very happy with the preformance, I use it as a touring aircraft and seem to get over the country side fairly smartly. Rotex engines just sit there and purr away all day. I've flown thru some rough conditions and it sits in the air well, it will be interesting to see how the lycombing goes. The question will be if more weight users up the additional horsepower? I guess we will know soon enough.

 

Best speed in my Brumby was 164knts ground speed, (I was riding the crust of a dust storm) 54knts tail wind!

Thanks for the offer Andrew. I'll be there on Friday 10th August, after a wearing week in the nations' capital. May give you a call during that week.

 

I've had a look at the you-tube vid that you cut on the Rotax 912ULS Brumby 610. From an instructing viewpoint - more space, adjustable seats, toe brakes, and an elevator trim wheel all make it easier. I like the ground adjustable propellor for training, because we really don't need any more than 90-100 kts for circuit and other manoeuvring work - but 1000 fpm would be very handy in the circuit.

 

You'll notice the difference in ground roll with larger diameter tyres. On my old C170, it lifted the aircrafts deck angle on the ground - causing the aircraft to lift earlier due the higher AoA. The reduction in drag through our very sandy paddocks over here was most noticeable. You just have to be cautious with larger tyres operated @ lower pressures - because they tend to 'grip' on bitumin runways when you're in stiff crosswinds.

 

happy days,

Hi peteroo,

 

Thanks for the reply, if everything goes to plan my Brumby will be at Cowra on the 2nd of August. Feel free to check it out, Paul will probably take you for a spin in the club one, have fun and give me a call if you want
