Airborne Affordable Flyers 10.13.23: Lancair Sold, Scissortail G750, Colt 100

Also: Home-Built Accidents Declining, Scalebirds Update, EAA Youth Programs, Glider Disconnect

JetEXE Aviation has acquired storied kit-aircraft concern Lancair—henceforth Lancair Aerospace.

Lancair, since its 1981 founding, created a global community of Lancair aircraft owners that comprises thousands of members who’ve logged, in the aggregate, hundreds-of-thousands of flight-hours in 14 Lancair models and variants thereof. Scissortail Aerosports showed off their GoGetAir G750 last month at the Mt. Version Sport Aviation Expo, in Illinois. You simply don't see that many taper-winged aircraft these days, much less one that pushes the LSA concept in advance of specs that will be coming as soon as MOSAIC becomes law. There is no end to the high-wing, kinda Cessna-looking birds out there in the LSA community... but now and then, one actually surprises us. Texas Aircraft’s Colt 100 did just that. ANN Test Pilot, Jim Campbell, noted that a well-designed cockpit was accented by the fact that it wasn't that difficult to get in and out -- an issue that more and more sport aircraft buyers have asked us about -- and one that we're going to pay a whole lot more attention to... All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
