On July 14, 2005 Europa, N81EU completed a flight around the world behind an
Airmaster VP prop attached to a Rotax 912. It was the propellor which provided
a breakthrough when the Russian authorities refused entry and a daring flight
needed to be made from Alaska to Japan. After 21 hours in the air I landed
with 45 Minutes of reserve and this was only possible due to the ability to
adjust optimum fuel flow over speed at different weights.
During another instant the Airmaster saved the life of pilot and a cameraman
in Mongolia when high density altitude and high grass did hamper take-off
from an unprepared field close to the birthplace of chengis khan. Only a split
second desicion to over-rev the engine to 6ooo rpm broke the spell and we were
airborne for a safe flight home.
The Airmaster is virtually carefree, built to highest standards (you should
show more photographs of you beautifully crafted hub on your website !), and
in my case has made the magic carpet complete. I strongly recommend every
owner of a small aircraft to opt for a VP and personally see no real
competition for the Airmaster.
