Airborne 11.10.17: TruTrak Vizion, AeroShell's McNeely, Wittman Airport

Also: Gone West-Richard Gordon, StandardAero Buys Vector Aerospace, Alaska Airlines, Piper ADs

Possibly one of the best deals in general aviation, TruTrak is now delivering both Cessna 172 and Cessna 177 Vizion autopilot systems.

AND... the company says the price is the same as when the system was announced at AirVenture 2017 - just $5000. This price includes pretty much everything needed to complete installation of the Vizion autopilot in a 172 or 177, autopilot controller, roll servo, pitch servo, mounting brackets, pushrods, AND hardware, even the wiring harness.  Add in the affordably-priced STC from EAA for $100 and pilots can install a two-axis autopilot that will not only make cross-country trips easier, but safer too. As the 2017 Stuart Air Show closed at Witham Field in Florida on November 5th, aviation enthusiasts bid a fond farewell to AeroShell Aerobatic Team member, Gene McNeely, who retired after 24 years of service with the team. Fans will likely remember McNeely for his years of flying the ‘slot’ position for the AeroShell Aerobatic Team. The director of Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, WI has announced that he will be stepping down from the post on February 24, 2018. At least that's Peter Moll's current plan, although Moll left the door open for an earlier departure. He said Feb 24 is his last day "unless I have something else lined up before that." All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
