Here’s a quick report on a most memorable flight from Winter Haven, Florida, to my home base at the Arlington, Washington Airport (KAWO).
First, a thank you to the AirCam team at the factory in Sebring who readied N333AE with the new Clamar carbon-fiber amphibious floats and sorted out other issues. From the front office to the mechanics in the hangar, everyone was a pleasure to do business with.
Next, I want to thank the Winter Haven crew who got me certified and on my way home. Richard Johnson, my primary instructor, and John Collins in the Twin Comanche were both superb instructors, professional, and patient.
April is just around the corner; it's time for the annual Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In and Expo on Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Florida! Visit the AirCam team this year April 4th through 9th. We will look forward to seeing you!
The AirCam display will be in its usual position on the main exhibitor’s show line, just northwest of the FAA Building in booth MD 20-B. Stop by to see the AirCam on amphibious floats, and check out our brand new full enclosure equipped factory demo AirCam, N87DF.
We will be featuring some of our great videos showing the AirCam in action, and will look forward to visiting with you, discussing our recent and upcoming adventures, and sharing more exciting AirCam news.
See you at the show!
Here’s an update on the AirCam enclosure project. The design has been finalized and most testing is complete. Flight testing has been going well, but the factory team still has to complete basic spin testing, which will require the installation of an emergency parachute system.
All the parts are ordered for the first run of 18 enclosures, with 14 already spoken for. Keith Campbell's AirCam will be the first customer aircraft to be fitted with the enclosure, and it will be on display at the Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In and Expo on April 21-26 in Lakeland, Florida. Stop by the AirCam display booth in the Main Exhibit Area to see Keith’s AirCam, or visit the AirCam display in the LSA Mall to examine the enclosure on the factory demonstrator, N912LA.
