    What's this?

    I saw a picture of this and don't recognize it. I think it may be a drawing and not real. It's claimed to be a drone seen in Australia.

    Mountain plane

    Hi everyone. Now that I've sold my aluminum vette engine and moved to the Southern Ecuadorian mountain wilderness I've started to think of what kind of special plane would be possible to use around here. It has special needs due to the location it's designed for. There are no small airports...

    Ocean altitude limit?

    If I understand it correctly, there is an altitude limit for GA aircraft operating visual over the continental US, but is there an altitude limit out over intercontinental ocean? You know, like to keep from getting smashed across the front of some airliner or Learjet.

    I've been able to find 3 view scale drawings of just about any plane I was interested in but I haven't been able to find one of the Aerostar 600/601, very strange.

    Tandem Wing Pusher

    This is an idea for a tandem wing pusher aircraft with the primary design goal being minimum wing sizes. To achieve minimum wing sizes both wings are lifting and most of the area of both wings contain large flaps, the front flap is also the pitch control. The center of gravity is a little...
