FLYER  |  Flyer August 2015  


This month in FLYER, Ian Seager flies a Swearingen SX-300 – a two-seat, high-performance kitplane conceived in the 1980s by designer Ed Swearingen, with a reputation for speed, complexity… and colossal build times! Elsewhere, Ken Scott tells the tale of recreating the previously extinct Stinson Model O from a handful of previously forgotten factory photos. Our first solo feature catches up with Mark Baker, the man behind AOPA, while our latest Flying Adventure takes you from the Pacific Ocean to hot-and-high mountains, through sparsely-populated desert and stunning canyons, plus one below-sea-level airport in Death Valley as Rob Mantel Sundances his way through spectacular Southwest USA
Joe Fournier looks at the chances of survival after ditching, and finds them higher than you think, but it's hard, fast work and frightening. Survival starts with preparation: through currency, planning, imagining scenarios, briefings... and careful loading, while Jerry Parr looks at the stopping power of brakes in Engineering Essentials, and Top Gear puts four folding bikes of various sizes and price to the test. With all this, plus the chance to save £49 in landing fees, the latest news, comment and much more – it’s easy to see why FLYER is the brightest and most-read GA title in the UK!
