Last summer the FAA Adminstrator flew the open-cockpit Quicksilver Sport II. At EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2004, FAA Administrator, Marion Blakey flew with instructor Ken Snyder to feel the Wisconsin breeze on her knees. Kudos to her for “daring” to fly in this machine; she was offered enclosed cockpit aircraft, but selected the Quicksilver herself. After she flew in it, I was able to convince two other FAA big shots to fly in the same machine. Look for my review of the charming little Sprint I in Ultralight Flying! magazine’s 2/05 issue.
