    Cars have backup cameras now. Couldn't an airplane have a landing camera?

    I believe the Nemesis NXT had a landing camera.

    Why not just make the floor of the cockpit ahead of the rudder petals out of clear acrylic?

    Landing without being able to see the runway isn’t too difficult. A camera could be very helpful for taxi, but I doubt that the typical auto back-up camera would be very useful for landing. Plexi floors and forward side panels in a Pitts were popular, and were OK for looking straight down, but did not really help much for forward visibility.

    The Verhees design does incorporate windows in the floor on each side of the cockpit. I'm also doing a camera in the nose for taxi purposes.

    Ah! Very good! Perhaps we might trade e-mail addresses whatever for some occasional info sharing.
