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.
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.
