Airborne 07.19.19: DeltaHawk, 'Flying Saucer' Drone, Original RV-5

Also: Gone West-Bill Harrison, Ray Scholar, D-Day Squadron, Bizarre Boeing/SWA Suit

DeltaHawk Engines, the US developer and manufacturer of a new generation of jet fuel GA engines, is implementing an Early-Bird Engine Buy Program.

Experimental aircraft owners can get a DHK 180-hp engine and engine monitoring package installed at the company's headquarters for a total price of $89,900. Plus, by placing an order during the AirVenture early-bird show special timeframe, aircraft owners pay only $5,000 at time of signing. This AirVenture early-bird special is only available for a limited time! The engine is currently installed in an SR-20 at the DeltaHawk booth, 177, where pilot-led engineering team members will be available to answer questions. Swiss researchers at Flybotix are working on a new type of drone that could lead to a substantial increase in flight time. Rather than four or more small rotors, the Flybotix drone has only two larger rotors, one on top of the other and rotating in opposite directions, enclosed in a full shroud. The theory is that reducing the number of rotors places less drain on the aircraft's batteries, increasing flight time. The cowling increases the aircraft's aerodynamic properties, which adds to the energy savings. The original RV-5, which is in the midst of a restoration being carried out by Van's Aircraft employees with the help of members of EAA Chapter 105, will be on display at AirVenture. Plenty of RV aircraft will be in attendance, but this will be the only RV-5, as only one has ever been built. Designed by Richard VanGrunsven in the mid-1970s as an investigatory, conceptual design intended to — among other things — address the fuel crisis at the time, the RV-5 was built by people from the local community including members of Chapter 105. The RV-5 is extremely light, weighing just 315 pounds including the engine, and is unique compared to Van's commercial line of aircraft due to its mid-wing configuration. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
