This week at Mentone ...... we all saw Mike put the new AAT Aviation Tercel ... daily through its paces flying low & nimbly in the 'demo-box' over the cornfield!
Wearing my hat as official event reporter for PRA rotorcraft E-zine .... I spent some time doing mini-interviews of a variety of Mentone visitors & exhibitors!
It was a pleasure to meet Artur & get his impressions of our PRA event and learn about his machines.
Mike graciously took me for a "prospective customer demo flight" ( Oops..... I spoke the incorrect flight request terminology "getting a ride" a couple of times in our conversation!!! ...)
THANKS Mike ..... that was a very impressive flight in your gorgeous new machine. LOVE the color ..... Mike explained that the customer can pick any colour available in the auto-paint spectrum & sent the number code to the AAT factory & they will match it very closely!
I was most impressed while talking to Mike - discovering a lot of good things about ordering this brand of machine - for use in the US.
As I am not sure how much should be said out on a public forum ... I encourage anyone interested in this well priced, great performing, pre-tested ...AIR-freighted - (no long waits for that pesky container delivery by sea) FAA 51% build compliant machine to get on the horn & talk to Mike!
This is a very nimble and well balanced machine ..... beautifully stable with the large twin tails on long booms! The cabin is SO roomy ... I got my large 6'6" hubby FJ to sit in & try it on for size ..... with the slightly smaller fuel tank option allowing him to seat a little farther back from the rudder pedals it appears he could be very comfortable in the cabin of this gyro ! LOTS of room for average -large people to sit sidexside without crowding each other! Fantastic all around visibility with thoughtfully designed window panels! Compact central instrumentation ... (comprehensive with out being overly busy!) nice luggage room behind the seat & the proven turbo-charged RST 122-135hp rotax powerplant giving excellent performance!
