    It looks like new aviation marketplace for you, isn't it?

    Too far for me probably but looks nice.

    It was nearly standard trip, probably "everyday bread" for him, but I have complete record of track in may iPad/Air Navigation Pro app.
    I hope to go back in future to spend more time flying - beautiful country.

    Mountains flights on the trip - New Zealand
    Dear friends,
    this is not Avid or Fox flying but I decided to share this video I took in March at the end of my business trip through New Zealand. My job is ATC systems (Air Traffic Control Systems) development and support so I had opportunity to work for AirNav New Zealand shortly. I finished my trip there by excellent flights to Milford Sound and back to Queenstown. Beautifull mountains, clever pilot - strong memories for me. I have only iPhone video but still nice enough.
    and second part

    SKYPER GT9 - new bird in the hands
    Hi friends,
    I have new toy in the hands for "customer test" ordered by aviation magazine here.
    Even though I have now Bristell, I am still sort of addicted to shoulder wing planes. This SKYPER is all-metal aircraft, very light, just 285kg /  628 lbs empty , but MTOW is 600kg/1322 lbs.
    What is unusual for me is quite high speed for cruising available, probably due to wing profile. I had only "first date" just no more the 2 hours in the air and 8 landings. Engine is standard ROTAX 912 / 100HP and origin of the aircraft is UL category 475kg/1047 lbs now enhanced to LSA level.

    BIG NEWS AGAIN - Avid TurboProp
    Dear friends,
    a little surprising information for me, but definitely big new for AVID community:
    AVID TurboProp is reality in Europe.
    Company Stuttgart Engineering developed STV-100 shaft-turbine engine for light aircraft - it is already known information for a while. They are working on 100HP and 130 HP variants of completely new engines.
    Surprise is that they decided for first installation on AVID aircraft    I have no more news or data, just a few pictures I am sharing with you for now. Enjoy

    Dear friends,
    last week we had the biggest aviation exhibition in Europe (for general aviation) AERO Expo 2018 Friedrichshafen. Sort of celebration for me and my friends, we are traveling nearly 1000 kilometers by car to visit this event.
    This year sort of mixture appeared here as you can see. Maybe not really rational, but ...
    Look at it. It is Bristell (my current aircraft type) but on the real Beringer Alaskan landing gear. I don't know, how it will work, but definitely I will ask to try it.

    Well, good information for me. I need to gather such information as here are no gush gears as common solution. Only real bush plane here is Slepcev STORCH I wrote about, but landing gear is more complicated due to historical replica matters. Btw. I didn't find any info about mentioned Fitt gear on the web ... can somebody give me a direction?
    I need to collect data step by step, and hope that my day is coming closer

    Sorry, my English is not so good, what does mean "flack" in this sentence:the springs catch a lot of flack around these parts! ? Do you mean some sort of dirt?
    I am asking because my "retirement dream" is shoulder wing plane with real bush landing gear, so any experience I can learn is good for me.

    Hi Nick, what about this gear?
    http://www.avidfoxflyers.com/index.php?/topic/3394-high-country-wide-gear/
    It looks like nice solution - if still available.
    Regarding Grove type of gear, just word of mouth, but cabane type of gear is more recommended for these light planes due to better distribution of forces to airframe.
