Some memories of the last show in Arizona… The Tucano-R flew from our American company in Texas, Archer City. The weather was nice and we met some very passionate pilots. Also Dan Johnson had finally a flight on our experimental warbird…. copy and paste this link to read his article and see his impressions….
In Mt Vernon, at Mildwest LSA Expo, Valter della Nebbia introduces our Tucano to the American market. The aircraft, which kit was recently approved by the FAAA https://www.faa.gov/aircraft/gen_av/ultralights/amateur_built/kits/media/amateur_built_kit_listing.pdf, è stato has finally completed its first 70 flight hours.
The aircraft is currently in Pennsylvania with our dealer Jeff and it is available to be flown.
Last week we met our USA dealers. We met Peery and Abed in Oakland County International Airport and Jeff in Mt Vernon. Jeff flew away with his new Tucano, 140 hp powered by a Rotax 912 with the mechanical compressor while Perry and Abed are still working on their aircraft.
