Airborne 12.11.23: Vans Prices Up 32%, Osprey Grounding, Frecce Tricolori

Also: Skyworks Gyro, Elixir Aircraft Sale, Wright Exhibit, Uncrewed Caravan

Well... there’s bad news and some not quite-as-bad news...

Van’s Aircraft is increasing most of their kit prices by approximately 32%. Online order forms will be updated with the new kit prices. Prices of individual parts and components will also be increasing, some more than 32%, and others less. While these price changes are significant, Van’s believes them to be necessary. The United States Air Force has grounded its fleet of V-22 Osprey aircraft a week after a fatal crash involving 8 Special Operations Command servicemen off the coast of Japan. The last 2 years have been particularly brutal to the Osprey community. Italy’s national aerobatic display team, the Frecce Tricolori, announced their 2024 tour schedule, with dates across the United States and Canada. The Frecce Tricolori have been the subject of murmuring around the airshow circuit in recent months, as fans and audiences look forward to the upcoming season. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
