Aero Friedrichshafen 2007
AERO 2007 expects further growth
AERO, the International Trade Exhibition for General Aviation to be held from 19 to 22 April 2007, will be once again one of the most important marketing tools for more than 700 companies from 30 countries next year.
Atec Zephyr 2000
A promising trend became apparent after only a few weeks of AERO preparation: more than 50 companies already registered for participation. Another 50 companies, mainly from abroad, announced their participation with some of these firms even wishing to rent more exhibition space than in 2005.
Project Management is very pleased that “two of the three exhibition halls dedicated to General Aviation and Business Aviation are almost fully booked”. According to the organisers, major reasons for the success of AERO are to be seen in the high quality of the trade show and the provision of outstanding opportunities for networking within the industry.

Long journey by Ultralight!
On the 20th of April, 13 ultralights took off in formation from a small airfield in southern Sweden. The destination was the town of Friedrichshafen in southern Germany to visit the Aero 2005 fair, a one way trip of more than 580 nautical miles. A fantastic journey that unfortunately was very dramatic in some ways!

Rotary Engine in Ultralight aircraft?
WANKEL AG has an interesting concept for us who fly light airplanes. They have a rotary engine that produces 75hp at weight of only 101 lbs (46kg)! For us who fly light aircraft, the usable load and empty weight is of great importance. Maybe this could be a good choice for us?
For you who don’t know what a rotary engine is. The rotary engine (Wankel) does not have any cylinders and pistons. Instead it has one or more triangular rotating discs. This gives the engine a very smooth running without vibrations. It also makes it possible to get a lot of horsepower at high rpms. The disadvantages with rotary engines has been high fuel consumption and a short lifespan.
Mazda has been leading the development of the wankel since it has been placed their RX-series of sports cars for a few years now.Visit WANKEL AG now!
I just happened to end up on a Cri-Cri page the other night. I found some video-clips
of Cri-Cri in the air. The Cri-Cri's wingspan is under 5 meters and has an empty weight of 63kg! Very nice video clips of the Cri-Cri flying! Check them out!
Visit the Cri-Cri page and check out the mpeg movies!
