    The aero engineering world has suffered a great loss.

    Thank you Roger for all you gave to us at International Formula 1! I appreciate all of the good advice you gave me on "Heatstroke". You will be sadly missed. And ALSO thank you Grace for all of your contributions as well! You both are in my prayers. Swaid.

    Cessna tests new “Skycourier” and it’s actually not too terrible

    Cessna tests new “Skycourier” and it’s actually not too terrible

    I shipped my airplane in 2017 except it was to Thailand for the Air Race 1 Cup race along with 15 other airplanes right after Reno. Unfortunately a couple of the racers were damaged due to rough handling of the containers. I have though about having a dedicated shipping crate which would make...

    Cessna tests new “Skycourier” and it’s actually not too terrible

    I need one to put my IF1 racer in and fly it to Reno. I have been dreaming about something like the GAFHawk for a long time. Maybe some Airtractor wings, a Pratt -41 and a 7' x 7' box with a ramp door on the back. 8500# gross, 1700# fuel = 5.5 hrs range, 2300# payload- enough for a Cassutt...

    Polen Special, anyone?

    Hi David Moxley, Thank you for posting your progress, it is an inspiration to all! I am looking forward to your updates. I went and viewed the Polen Special at Dick's house in 2015. It was apart and needed some work. He told me he may not ever fly it again and might donate it to a museum. It is...

    300 HP Airframe Needed.

    Most of the suggestions would work. The main objective is to purchase a previously flying home-built minus the engine and prop so I can install mine. I am not looking for a keeper but something that has a resell market. I am familiar with all the above aircraft but the one off twin named Gumbo...

    300 HP Airframe Needed.

    Hello All, I am looking to buy an Experimental air-frame minus the engine and prop. I would like to find one that has previously flown and needs an engine and prop Or very close to completion. I have a complete Aerostar 600 that I am parting out. I will consider most anything except one off...

    Mike makes parts

    In order to make it a Gold class racer I would need to change to a tapered wing, cut down the turtle deck and canopy, new carbon tail, new engine mount and cowling, etc..... I figured it would be faster to build a new plane and not scrap a slab wing racer with race history. I was planning to...

    Mike makes parts

    I did not know you parted with your Cassutt?! I was hoping I would meet you one September in Reno. I sold Heatstroke in March'18. We are working on a SnoShoe for 2020. Good luck with the Smith.

    Cassutt - looking for anyone who knows anything about it

    Here is a few pictures of Thailand. One of them shows the rudder shape on Heatstroke. I think my rudder might have a straight trailing edge similar to Mother Holiday.

    Wing spar sizing design

    Is there a program (freeware calculator) or other simple means used to calculate the loads and sizing of a light aircraft "C" channel spar design, either wing or tail? To be applied to a Cassutt sized airplane used for Racing. Thanks, Fixnflyr
