Company To Apply Rich Experience In Championship Air Races and AirShow
UAV Navigation will sponsor its CEO and co-founder Guillermo Parodi's jet aircraft in the upcoming Reno National Championship Air Races and Air Show in September 2012. Parodi will be flying a Cassutt Special III dubbed, "N-A-RUSH."
The Cassault Special III is a single seat racing jet designed in the United States in 1951 by ex-TWA Captain Tom Cassutt. It will compete in the Formula One Class. All Formula One aircraft are powered by a Continental O-200 engine. The fastest of these aircraft can reach almost 250 mph on the 3.12 mile race course in Reno.
Parodi commented, " I appreciate the first-hand experience of flight testing the company's avionics equipment myself. It is a direct way of understanding the needs of the ultimate consumer and a fertile ground for breeding new ideas.
