Pilot Magazine News - March 2012

PUBLISHED: 14:49 13 March 2012 | UPDATED: 14:12 10 October 2012

Latest news from Pilot Magazine...

Hot news in the flying world is the announcement of the Rotax 912iS, which brings direct fuel injection and digital electronic control to the most popular four-stroke power plant used in microlights/ultralights, Euro-VLA and US Light Sport Aircraft (see the Spring issue for our full news story, alongside an exclusive flight test of the superb Bristell Fastback LSA and something of a ‘budget flying’ theme, with a ‘First Look’ feature on the GSAL Eindecker ‘deregulated’ and flight test of the latest incarnation of the Thruster microlight).

While the year’s fly-ins are beginning to take off (see our constantly-updated Calendar for dates) the European headline event of the next couple of months is AERO 2012, held at Friedrichshafen on 19-22 April. Pilot will be reporting from the event, which showcases all the latest in GA and includes everything from R/C models to full-size bizjets. Don’t forget that the British equivalent, Aero Expo, held on 25-27 May is coming hot on its heels. Early bookings are up, and Sywell promises a wonderful grass field/art deco ‘feel’ to the event – one to which you can easily fly in.
