In case I don’t get another post up before (gosh, this is a busy time of year, isn’t it?)… let me wish all visitors and viewers a very warm and wonderful holiday. We so appreciate your visits to ByDanJohnson.com! We begin a new year shortly and will keep our focus on the many enjoyable light airplanes. This industry and the pilots it serves have an exciting four years ahead as FAA’s huge new regulation comes to completion. For some this will add excellent new opportunities such as using an LSA of the future to do various kinds of aerial work — and much more. For others — those of you who enjoy pure recreational flying — the new rule will also be beneficial as FAA pulls further back to let industry take the lead in new directions. I find this very foresightful of the aviation agency and I’m thrilled to report more as we learn details of the new rule.
It's Holiday Time What Could You Ask Santa to Bring?How about WingBug as a stocking stuffer? This thing is pretty amazing. I admire developer Alex Rolinski and partner Bryan Tittle for pursuing such a project to a high state of the art. The good folks at Levil have a different entry (the B.O.M.) but WingBug has an advantage in that they also developed an app to support the hardware. The app and product are darned impressive and the video below will tell you all you need to know plus give you a close-up look to see how it functions. (This was a rare solo effort of video recording on my part but it has been made totally professional thanks to the talented YouTube publisher Videoman Dave who could not attend DeLand this year.)
