The New Kolb Aircraft Company proudly told ANN Wednesday the
first production unit of its light sport aircraft, the Kolb Flyer
Super Sport, took flight for the first time on April 3. The flight
was a milestone in a testing program which started six months ago,
should be completed by the first week of July.
A few weeks ago, Aero-TV traveled to Champaign, Illinois, to
sample the delights of an all indoor radio-controlled model
aircraft event known as E-Fest. It was quite the weekend and we,
admittedly, had a great time seeing the best in small model
aircraft. While many of the aircraft thrilled us to no end, it was
the wild and seemingly non-aerodynamic antics of the RC helicopters
that really got our attention.
