As are many of the other posters in this forum, I am very excited about the Mosquito and am eager to learn more and hear the feedback as more of these are flying.

I am a paraglider pilot that is looking very seriously at other types of aircraft that may be within my reach. I have recently been looking at gyroplanes and think they may be a good alternative for me, as they claim to be much safer than fixed wings or helicopters. If anyone has any comments in that regard I would love to hear them.

I have a couple of quick questions on the mosquito:

Is there any merit to the thought of a BRS system for this craft? Is it possible?

Has anyone thought of putting a light tubular "cab assembly on the air version with a plexi bubble wind shield?

I have heard that there is around 15 of these flying. Approximately what is the most hours a builder has logged flying to date?

How many of these craft (air, XE and XEL) have been produced? Kits and complete? How many are back ordered?

Thanks for your time in considering these question. I am very interested in your products and am excited to see how they evolve, as I research what type of aircraft is right for me.

Thanks

  "51% rule" compliance
Posted by: aviatrexx - 12-09-2006, 04:55 PM - Forum: Registration and Licencing - Replies (2)

I just checked the FAA list of aircraft kits that have met their rather squishy definition of "major portion fabricated and assembled by an individual", commonly referred to as the "51% rule". Curious, and notable by exception, was the absence of any of the Mosquito designs. All the other major helicopter kit designs were represented.

The FAA readily admits that there are many aircraft designs that might meet the "major portion" rule but those kit manufacturers have not submitted a request to be included. No doubt more is required than a simple "request"; you just know the Feds are going to want all sort of documentation of manufacturer effort vs. builder effort.

I know for a fact that the "major portion" determination for a helicopter kit is considerably more lenient than for a fixed-wing kit, owing to the complexity of the rotor components. The FAA isn't stupid; it doesn't want Joe Allthumbs assembling rotorheads, regardless of how much how that might tilt the 51% towards the kit manufacturer. However, the simpler the design, the harder it is to come up with enough work for the individual to perform to qualify as the major portion. I have no concern about the quality of the engineering or parts manufacture of the Mosquito, but I do want to be able to register it "Experimental - Amateur Built".

Regardless of the effort required to get the FAA's blessing, it would seem to be a worthwhile imprimatur to pursue. Otherwise, the onus is on the builder to prove that he completed the "major portion". Since I'd like to take advantage of the "factory builder assistance" program, and given the wide variation in FAR interpretation by FAA officials in different regions of the country, I'd rather not risk running afoul of a dyspeptic DAR at the last minute.

What's your thinking on this, John?

  a really basic question...
Posted by: aviatrexx - 12-09-2006, 02:59 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

I suppose that "XEL" stands for "XE-Light" but what does "XE" stand for?
"eXEllent", "eXtra Excitement", "eXternal Enclosure"?

  kit pricing
Posted by: Matthew - 12-07-2006, 09:43 PM - Forum: Pricing - Replies (4)

i just looked over the kit pricing and i saw that to have the mosquito xe pre-built you would have to add 4500 insead of 4000. did you add 500 more to the price to have it tested?

also, i was just wondering, did the mosquito xe come pre painted and Mosquito and pre polished before?

also again, what happen to the avionics price for the Transceiver

sorry for all of the questions :o
