Junkers Finally ‘Corrects’ The A50 Junior with a Radial Engine

All is As It Should Be Once Again

Junkers Aircraft has shown up to Sun ‘n Fun 2024 with a much-requested variation of their A50 LSA, replacing the original homage’s nose-mounted Rotax engine with a much more period accurate Scarlett 7 radial engine. The new model is called the A50 Heritage, differentiating it from the Rotax-powered version that caught so much attention in 2023. It’s understandable why the firm started out with the Rotax version first, despite its overall commitment to providing as much historically-accurate design as they possibly can: The Rotax is a pretty well-known, trusted, affordable, and fuel-sipping powerplant with a fairly modular footprint. Designing an aircraft around it means a wider demographic of buyers, with some extra room to grow as years pass and customers desire increasingly powerful versions of the same aircraft.

Celebrating the 80th Anniversary of D-Day

Welcome to a journey through time and skies! This year, the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Airbase Georgia is taking us on an unforgettable adventure, celebrating the 80th Anniversary of D-Day.

It marked the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.

Classic Aero-TV: The Switchblade Flying Car FLIES!

On 15 July 2022, the FAA granted approval for flight-testing of the machine to commence, and Samson Sky got eagerly about the business of vetting its creation.
