I’m a huge fan of those planes.

To me it’s a lot like a motor bike. You don’t want it as your primary means of transportation and it’s not for year round use if you live in a colder climate.

But if you want to fly locally, in good weather and enjoy the wind in your face and the awesome view there’s nothing better!

A little more progress.

Rear seat analog gauges installed.

Airplane should start final assembly late this week. Then engine runs and annual sign off.

Hope to be flying early December.

Actually it does have a blue line speed Vyse.

Blue line speed is about 48 mph. The rear airspeed indicator is not silk screened with that speed, but the Dynon panel up front will have that speed indicated on the airspeed tape.

At max gross, 1,680 lbs, it supposed to climb at over 300 ft/min at Vyse.

On my demo flight, not at max gross weight, it did way more than that.

It sounds like a fun way to do some multi time building!

There’s two of them around the corner from my hangar they are very cool and on floats. When he’s working on them I just stand and stare. Congrats.

I got about 3.5 hours in an AirCam a few years ago. Absolutely, incredibly fun to go fly. If you're going to root around in river valleys and canyons with steep walls on either side, it's the only way to go.
Definitely in the Top 5 of aircraft I ever want to own.
Congratulations on your acquisition!

Avoiding housework led me to this forum.
Anyone else out there that had to Google "AirCam" and sort by images? :shrug:

Giving rides in my Breezy has been the most fun aviation interaction with others I've ever had. (I have a breezy because I couldn't afford an aircam.)

Give lots of rides...


Wow, that one sure looks........... well, “Breezy”. I have a friend with an AirCam and he has lots of fun with it and absolutely loves it. I would have floats, but since he lives in Tucson..... NO.

I heard that you can take off on one engine.....
:drool:

That looks like such fun to have for local flights.

I intend to gives lots of flights to friends and family.

I’ve heard that it’ll takeoff on one engine (obviously not recommended). I’ve flown the engine with one pulled all the way back, still climbs at 500’/min.

Was hoping for final delivery before Christmas, but now may not get the avionics bugs worked out until New Years.

Latest video with engines running, looking good, sounds great.
