I can't go to SnF, sorry.If you go to Sun n Fun please take a test flight and provide a pirep! Thanks! I’ve flown in one M24, but don’t think the prop was pitched correctly.
Thanks for posting. Do you think it will cruise around 100mph? Looks like a closed tandem single canopy design rather than dual doors in the M24 side by side. Maybe they will announce it at Sun n Fun starting March 31st....
In a webinar last month, Luca Magni stated he expects the M26 to start being available by EOY 2021. Dual controls are optional, no removable canopy (yet). It is not being designed to be a trainer. Will only come with the Rotax 915. He also said when asked that a removable canopy will be researched in 2022.Not only was Aero 2020 cancelled – all italian factories were closed for several months last year, starting right about the time of the planned announcement. I imagine they are still riding out a lot of business uncertainty even now.
Italy never was the easiest place to grow a business to begin with, as evidenced by what Illini85 just wrote, above.
"To cover all fiscal obligations in Austria, a company owner has to work 170 days per year, in France 132, and in Switzerland 63. In Italy, however, 269!"
