  1. The Humbert Tétras (English: Grouse) is a French two seat ultralight with a single engine and high wing. Available as a kit or complete aircraft, it has been in production since 1994 by Humbert Aviation of Ramonchamp. The Tétras was first seen in public in 1992 at the RSA Rally at Moulins and marketing began in 1994. It is a conventionally laid out single engine, tractor configuration light aircraft with a high wing, side-by-side seating for two and a fixed undercarriage. For details of the construction and six variants, click here.
  2. The Skyboy was manufactured as a completed aircraft by InterPlane Aircraft of Zbraslavice, Czech Republic. It was designed in 1992 specifically for the German market as a trainer. It was adapted for the US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles category for use as a two-seat trainer under the FAR 103 trainer exemption. It later became available as a US light-sport aircraft. The aircraft is available in Canada as an Advanced Ultralight Aeroplane. For details of the construction and features of the Skyboy, click here.
  3. Designed by Philippe Moniot and certified in 1999, this very light (400 kg empty, 634 kg loaded) and economical (80 PS engine) aircraft is primarily intended to be used to learn to fly, but also to travel with a relatively high cruise speed (113 knots).Despite its classic appearance, it is entirely built from composite materials, especially carbon fibers. A three-seat version, the APM 30 Lion, was presented at the 2005 Paris Air Show. A four seat derivative, the APM-40 Simba is also available.
  4. Hi Phil, What programs are you having USB problems with? I've just run an update to Win10 to the latest version, and this morning ran a properties check on a SD card to see how much space was left. I also run a USB external drive with all my photos on it. I've been working the dickens out of it with the Aircraft Showcase. File Explorer and my photo editor PhotoScape work fine. Swapped the external drive for a USB stick and read files off it. Not sure why you are having problems.
  5. Ian has completed the monumental task of copying all the profiles from the old software, so now they are all here. The total now exceeds 200 profiles. If there is any aircraft you would like added, please advise in the comments below. I would be particularly interested in recommendations for gliders, as this category is under represented, and I don't know much about gliders.
  6. Maybe it's just military heavy lifters. What about the C-17 or C-5A?
  7. It took everyone by surprise when the C-27J Spartan went inverted during it's handling display at the 2015 Avalon Air Show. I have just posted a video in the Media section showing a LM-100J Super Hercules doing the same, pulling off a loop. Then when the list of other similar videos came up on the side of the Youtube page, there was one for the Airbus A300M performing an inverted display as well. When can we expect a loop in the A380?
  8. Here's an image of the Conair BAe Avro 146 Firebomber at Avalon in 2015.
  9. Slight thread drift, but it refers to a previous post regarding Frank Lowy's yacht. Apparently he just sold it to a mining millionaire (billionaire?). It was featured in tonight's news running amok and crashing into a marina, crushing a number of dinghies and a gangway.
  10. Yes Graeme, the Plumb Cracker Jack.
  11. Sorry Glenn. This may help: The aircraft was flown regularly from 1982-1986 then retired and the registration abandoned. Today, the plane is on display at KMIT.
  12. The yellow and white plane in #1701 is a Powell P-70 Acey Deucy, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powell_P-70_Acey_Deucy
