    I flew this aircraft while on vacation in Switzerland. It debut'ed here at Air Venture this year.

This a/c is a retractable gear aircraft powered by a 135 HP Rotax 917.

This engine has not been introduced in the U.S. Yet.

This S a/c is like a little fighter and flies like one.

We weren't able to really ring it out cause of Swiss airspace and low clouds and ceilings.
Airspace there is much more restrictive than here, but still a really fun time flying.

This picture is of Daniel Bättig, who's family hosted us and made our visit the best vacation we could ever hope to have. Daniel flies with me when they visit the U.S. And I have had the honor of soloing both of his and Pia's sons. They are now both licensed pilots and Tim the oldest is now a Swiss Military Helicopter pilot.
