Hi AeroDynamic Aviators
Both the Champ and Taylorcraft are back on line.
The Champ has had a new radio and intercom installation to replace the one that kept breaking down.
The Taylorcraft has merely been waiting for better weather and its annual inspection.
Where else can you fly a 1945 or 1946 airplane, with a manual “armstrong” starter system, just like your grandfather might have learned to fly in?
They definitely are an acquired taste, but they will help you hone your stick and rudder skills like no other plane.
I have test flown both and they are ready for you!
I’d like to extend a warm AeroDynamic welcome to Jose Catalan Soriano and Daniel Tari Fernandez, two pilots from Spain who have come to us to learn the art of tailwheel flying and then spend some time to gain additional experience.
Congratulations to both for earning their tailwheel endorsements, and checking out in a variety of taildraggers already, including the Taylorcraft L-1, Aeronca Champ and Citabria.
The L-2 is back on line!
Our 1945 little warbird is back. N50839 was a real military plane in 1945, serving with the US Army on the home front as a liaison and observation plane. Converted back to its civilian form, it is a great example of a plane that so many pilots learnt to fly in – the Taylorcraft “tandem trainer”.
Come fly the spirit of a bygone age – wooden prop, “Armstrong” starter, slide open the window and stick your elbow out and enjoy low and slow flying.
