Let’s celebrate the return of some very fine whine.
The Lancair Turbine Evolution might be the ultimate Experimental kit aircraft. By Doug Rozendaal.
Looking sleek as a spaceship, the new V-Twin inspires some strong feelings in flight reviewer Doug Rozendaal when he first sees it. Flying the plane only increases his enthusiasm.
Capturing the look (and at least some of the feel) of a legendary aircraft-one that tops many pilots dream list-was no small feat. By Doug Rozendaal.
When determining whos best to conduct the first flight, its a risk versus reward equation. By Doug Rozendaal.
Doug Rozendaal samples the new piston version of the Lancair Evolution and, as with the turbine Evo, finds much to admire.
The Velocity TXL-5 turbo combines style, sophistication and high performance eminently suited to cross-country sojourns at flight levels. By Doug Rozendaal.
Before you think to yourself, “I couldn’t afford that, let alone fly it” relax a little and let your imagination run wild. The ViperJet offers glove leather interior, rosewood inlay, and performance to spare. Doug Rozendaal completes the picture.
When Joe Bartels bought the company from founder Lance Neibauer in 2003, he knew it was time for a change.
