1. ### New Guy,

Pietenpol Air Camper, hard to get more straight forward than that. It‘s all wood, easy to fly, two seats, so you can have an instructor teach you how to fly. Cheap to build and to operate. Ther is an annual fly-in just before Oshkosh each year. Good luck
2. ### Raptor NG Discussion

Geap is a typo, it should be Leap. The CFM Leap engine was the follow on to the CFM-56 engines.

Thanks too all for the reply.
4. ### Raptor NG Discussion

Why do you think that that is true? Can you provide any data or calculations to support that statement? Thanks
5. ### Raptor NG Discussion

Yeah, at 3500kg/7700lbs, that will work(not). IMO This is a joke/distraction meant to keep the attention off of the failure of Raptor1 and his poor pilot skill/judgement. And it’s working.

Again, it all depends on the wording in the LLC agreement.

It would be negligent or incompetence to not test the wing spar Imo. Certainly any reputable Director of Engineering would have done a sand bag test of the wing spar. I didn’t see it in any of the videos maybe it was left out. Wasn’t Jeff Kerlo Director of Engineering? We could ask him.
11. ### Scientists Turn CO2 Into Jet Fuel

Nature already does that, there are called trees. Eats the CO2, releases the O2, stacks the C as cellulose in the form of wood.

Raptor will never become what Peter intended as stated in his spec sheet. It’s like my 8yr old designing an airplane. Physics won’t allow it.
13. ### 10/23 Raptor Video

Don’t worry, it won’t get that far.

Then he should fix his cooling issue first.

Not fly it.
