                                     Beechcraft               Staggerwing
                      Said to be the Rolls-Royce of biplanes, this near rare all-time American classic was
                      designed and developed as a luxury business executive transport, through the col-
                      laborative efforts of businessman Walter H. Beech and aircraft designer T.A. “Ted”

        prototype Beechcraft Model 17 was first flown on November 4th 1932. Sleek, fast and sassy, the
        first production model, B17L was to be the forerunner of a standard-setting private four-passenger
        aircraft. A unique signature design and style was highlighted by the unusual wing layout, having
the upper wing inversely staggered by nearly 26 inches behind the lower wing, providing excellent visi-
bility to the pilot, and low stall characteristics to the aircraft. A large powerful radial engine housed up
front, retractable undercarriage, solid wing struts and tapered fuselage nicely finished a tomorrow-like
streamlined appearance. The moniker “Staggerwing”, as the story goes, originated at an air show in
Miami, FL in 1933, when the commentator made the remark during a high-speed pass “look at that neg-
ative staggerwing Beechcraft go”, hence the forever accepted nickname “Staggerwing”, now readily
associated with the venerable D17S.

                                                                     The mid-1930s forward saw the

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 5, 2009 - Cessna Aircraft
Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, is
demonstrating its new Internet-based flight training
software at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots
Association (AOPA) annual convention. The
Sport/Private Pilot course is approvable under FAR
Part 141 regulations.

The Cessna Flight Training System is available
through the global Cessna Pilot Center network of
flight schools.

“The new training program is a key component of              Ta l k t o u s a b o u r o u r N E W
Cessna’s effort to make flying more accessible and
to re-energize pilot training,” said Tom Aniello,

Cessna’s vice president of Marketing. “The AOPA
convention is the perfect venue to really show off
this new tool since these are the people closest to
the training environment.”

Stans, 17 November 2009

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is proud to announce that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force & Air Defense
(AF&AD) has entered into a contract in excess of 500 Million Swiss Francs to procure a fleet of 25 PC-
21 turboprop aircraft, together with an integrated ground based training system and a comprehensive
logistics support package.

After Switzerland and Singapore, the UAE is now the third country to revolutionise its training pipeline
with the most modern and most advanced turbo trainer aircraft on the market today.

Delivery of the aircraft and the complete training system
is scheduled to commence in 2011, paving the way for
basic and advanced flying training in the UAE to be in
line with the 4th generation equipment already in service
in the front line squadrons, enabling the UAE AF&AD to
continue to produce first class
pilots for these demanding platforms.

The decision to select the PC-21 training system was
made after an extremely tough and thorough evaluation
by the UAE, which looked at all available options. It is a
major success for Pilatus Aircraft Ltd in the Middle East
and we believe it will encourage other forces in the
region and beyond to take a close look at our pilot train-
ing solution.

As a partner to the UAE AF&AD for more than 25 years, in supporting the existing fleet of PC-7 trainer
aircraft, this award is proof positive of the confidence and trust our customer has bestowed on Pilatus
Aircraft Ltd for securing the future of their basic and advanced flying training requirements. Once
Pilatus always Pilatus.

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is committed to continue serving the UAE AF&AD with its world renowned dedica-
tion to Swiss precision and quality, through delivering and supporting the most advanced turbo trainer
aircraft in the world the Pilatus PC-21.

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd was founded in 1939 and is currently world market leader in the manufacture and
sale of single-engine turboprop aircraft. It is the only
Swiss company that develops and produces private and
training aircraft. Pilatus, which is headquartered in Stans,
Switzerland, is licensed to maintain and
perform upgrades on a variety of aircraft. This service is
complemented by three independent subsidiaries in
Altenrhein (Switzerland), in Broomfield (Colorado, USA)
and Adelaide (Australia). In UAE
Pilatus is represented by a branch office in Abu Dhabi.

                                        Before you Shake Hands
                       If you’re like most owners and pilots, you simply renew your aviation
                       insurance policy every year. If it was good enough last year it will be
                       good enough this year.

There are two very big problems with this scenario.First, things change. Your aircraft, where
you fly, who you fly with, how much you fly; therefore, these changes should be reflected in
your policy. Second, and even more serious, is that your policy
may be the wrong one for you! In that situation, you are simply renewing your mistake year
after year. In either case, your aviation insurance policy deserves a little bit of your time once
a year. Here are the five things you should do to make sure you are adequately protected.

1. Choose Your Broker

Start by finding an aviation specialist. Although any general insurance broker can sell you aviation insurance, they simply do
not have the ex perience or familiarity with the field to be your best choice and they usually can’t get you the best rates.

2. Confirm the Value of Your Aircraft

Neglecting to keep up with the market value of your aircraft is one of the most common renewal mistakes. Unlike home or
auto insurance, aviation insurance is a “stated value” policy - the “stated value” is the maximum the insurance company will
pay out— they may also keep the plane as salvage. That means that the owner is responsible for declaring t he value of the
insured aircraft. If you undervalue your plane, you risk losing it after even a minor accident.

3. Review Your Liability

Make sure your policy doesn’t have passenger or family member restrictions. This is the most common way that companies
offer “bargain” policies. It is also the most common way owners lose everything they own when courts award large injury set-
tlements that are not covered by their “bargain” policy. With the high court settlements being awarded today, one to two mil-
lion dollars should be the least you consider.

4. Get the Right Coverage for Your Needs

At every renewal, you should discuss your flying habits with your broker. Make sure your policy covers the kind of flying you
do. Also, if you make upgrades or changes to the configuration of your aircraft, you may need to make some adjustments to
your policy. Otherwise, you may find yourself out of luck in case of an accident.

5. Protect Your Interests

You should discuss any other unusual circumstances regarding your aircraft. You may need to arrange for special coverage to
protect your interests. A common example is an owner who leases his aircraft to a flying school or commercial operator. If the
lessee commits an illegal act or omission, your aviation policy could be nullified. In these situations, you should obtain
“Breach of Warranty” coverage which will pay a lien holder’s interest despite the policy being otherwise invalidated.
Following these simple steps once a year at renewal time could save you a lot of money - don’t take the easy way out …
Don’t say “Just renew it for another year.”

 The Garmin G500 systems is a no-compromise glass panel solution for most air-
 craft under 6000 lbs. The Garmin G600 system includes: Synthetic Vision
 Technology (SVT), GAD43 adapter with attitude gyro outputs for autopilots and is
 capable of display functions for Garmin's weather radar. It is approved for installation
 into many aircraft types up to 12000 lbs.

 It all makes sense, you can make a really good aircraft a really much better aircraft.

 With Supplemental Type Certification provided under an Approved Model List
 (AML)2, standardized retrofit installation of the G600/G500 in your aircraft is simple
 and straightforward. The unit neatly fits into the “six-pack” slot in your instrument
 panel – and connects through your plane’s existing electrical system. So, you could
 be flying behind that great-looking Garmin glass even sooner than you expected.
 Better still, you’ll be flying with the confidence and peace-of-mind that comes with
 our award-winning Garmin Product Support.

 To find out more about the futuristic flight capabilities available now with a
 G600/G500 retrofit, just give Maxcraft Avionics Ltd. your Garmin dealer a call. Or

Dale Klapmeier on Cirrus Known Ice Protection.

(Aircraft referenced has an experimental certificate of airworthiness and is operating within Cirrus Aircraft's new product launch time-
in-service program.)

For a few years the Cirrus SR22 has been available with basic ice protection, meant only to buy pilots a bit of time and security while
exiting an inadvertent icing encounter. It was never intended to allow pilots to deliberately penetrate visible moisture when icing is
known or forecast. Too often, this lack of known icing capability hindered aircraft utility and dispatch rates.

2009 Cirrus SR22 and Turbo models are available with Cirrus Known Ice Protection - a TKS based weeping-wing anti-ice system that
is equipped for certification* for Flight into Known Icing conditions (FIKI). *Certification available, Q2 '09

The introduction of Cirrus Known Ice Protection was just a matter of time, and the minute you activate the robust, FIKI-approved TKS
system, you’ll know it’s different from the basic ice protection on non-FIKI aircraft. Cirrus Known Ice Protection is an actual FAA re-
certification of the SR22 and Turbo to permit pilots to legally fly into known icing conditions.

This certification required much more than adding an extra pump and fluid volume to the basic system. When activated, the Cirrus
Known Ice Protection system thoroughly and evenly coats flight surfaces, including the vertical stabilizer and elevator tips, with anti-
ice fluid. The FIKI-approved system incorporates new elements like a stall speed indicator on the PFD, ice lights with split prisms on
either side of the aircraft that illuminate both the wings and horizontal stabilizer in low-light conditions, and backup pumps and filters
for fault-tolerant and redundant operation. With the two small nozzles positioned just below the windscreen, in addition to any fluid
slung rearward by the propeller, the pilot is assured of an unobstructed forward view. Endurance for the system, now indicated on the
Cirrus Perspective MFD, is increased to 150 minutes at Normal flow rates, 75 minutes when High is selected, and a new, Max rate
has been added affording a total of 37.5 minutes of anti-ice capability, in two-minute bursts, during periods of higher accretion.

Cirrus again delivers increased aircraft safety and utility. With Known Ice Protection on the new SR22 and Turbo, pilots can now
launch or continue flight with the peace of mind that they’re both legal and safe when icing is forecast or present.

The new SR22 and Turbo for 2009, bringing safety, security, value and style to a new altitude.

                          The Aichi D3A1, a Navy Type 99 Carrier Bomber 11, was the first Japanese warplane to bomb
                          American targets in World War Two. Code named “VAL”, in keeping with the Allies identifica-
                          tion system, 126 of the tandem-two-seat, single engine dive-bombers played a major role in the
                          attack of December 7, 1941 on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, labeled Operation Z, and the destruction
                          of warships on Battleship Row, particularly the U.S.S. Arizona. The assault, planned by
                          Admiral Isoruku Yamamoto, Chief of the Combined Japanese Fleet, was based on the success of
                          the British torpedo attack on the Italian fleet at Taranto the year previous. Choosing the code
name Operation Z, as it turns out, was steeped in Japanese Naval history. On board the Japanese aircraft carrier Akagi
(Red Castle), flagship of the Pearl Harbor assault force, was the flag originally flown over Admiral Togo’s flagship in the
defeat of the Russians during the Battle of Tsushima Strait in 1905. It was called the Z Flag, hence Operation Z.

In the first year of the Pacific war, VAL bombers sank more Allied ships and more overall tonnage than any other Axis air-
craft of World War Two. Moreover, “Vals” were largely responsible for the sinking of British battle cruisers H.M.S.
Cornwall and H.M.S. Dorsetshire in the Indian Ocean in late 1941, and the British aircraft carrier H.M.S. Hermes, off
Ceylon on 9 April 1942. In each of these operations, it is said, the “Vals” dropped more than 80% of their bomb load on
target. The D3A1, regardless of itís oncoming obsolescence, proved to be one of the best dive-bombers of its time, and
continued to be a dangerous presence in various naval encounters including the “Battle of Midway”, likewise engineered
by Admiral Yamamoto. In late August 1942 an improved model, the Aichi D3A2, entered the combat, assigned to small-
er but faster aircraft carriers where the VAL became a more effective weapon, apparently due to itís slower speed and abil-
ity to become airborne quickly. But eventually, the D3As became easy prey to the ever improving American fighter planes
and their persistent pilots. Heavy losses resulted, and by 1944 surviving D3As were transferred to land-based combat units,
then transport and training duties, and subsequently the role of the “Kamikaze” or suicide missions. Nonetheless, D3As
did remain in production throughout the war. All told some 1,500 examples were turned out between 1939 and 1945 of
which most were of the D3A2 version.

Initially designed as a successor to the D1A biplane fighter, the D3A emerged as an all-metal low-wing monoplane with a
fixed tail wheel and faired main landing gear. First flown in January 1938, the Aichi D3A prototype revealed several design
deficiencies. These were remedied along with some power adjustments in the second pre-production version, which
enabled full term production of the D3A1 model in early 1940. Deliveries to naval units were made later that year.

Manufactured by Aichi Kokuki K.K., the D3A1 was powered by Mitsubishi Kinsei 43, 14-cylinder radial, air-cooled 1,000
h.p. engine. A second production run of the “A1” model included an engine upgrade to a 1,070 h.p. Kinsei 44 radial.
Generally, this VAL version had a maximum take-off weight of 8,047 lbs., a top speed of 240 mph at 9,845 feet, a service
ceiling of 30,500 feet and a range of 915 miles. Weaponry for the accurately sighted dive-bomber included two fixed and
one trainable 0.303-in machine guns, with 815 lbs. of bombs (3). The D3A2 model was equipped with a more powerful
1,300 h.p. Kinsei radial engine and larger fuel tanks, but otherwise was quite similar to itís predecessor.

The photo featured D3A1 VAL is actually a “Hollywood” replica built for the blockbuster war movie “Tora, Tora, Tora”,
from the body of a 1941 Consolidated Vultee BT-13A, and powered by a Pratt and Whitney R-1340 engine. Owned by the
American Airpower Heritage Flying Museum of Midland, Texas, the rebuild is currently flown as part of the “Tora, Tora,
Tora” re-enactment squadron of the Commemorative Air Force.

The only original VAL on display in the world today is a D3A2-22, s/n 3179, engined with a Pratt and Whitney R-2600, at
the Air Museum, Planes of Fame, Chino California which is awaiting a complete restoration back to airworthy condition.
Recovered from Ballale Island of the Bougainville chain in 1968 the wreck remains were air freighted to Canada in early
1969 by Bob Diemert of Carmen, Manitoba. The rebuilt aircraft, under civil registration CF-TZT, was then delivered to
the Canadian National Aeronautical Collection in 1973. #3170 was subsequently acquired by Ed Maloney/Planes of Fame
Museum in 1984 where it is today hangar displayed as Bll-201 under tail #N3131G.

national championship.

"My Lycoming Thunderbolt Engine roared to life,"
Sharp said, "so I just held on and let it rip!"

Sharp, of Mojave, Calif., won the championship by
averaging a class race record 407.061 mph over the
8-mile course. In each heat Sharp flew progressive-

                                              We have developed a very intensive pre-purchase
                                              inspection program to help buyers of Navajo's to properly

                                              stage for a very unpleasant experience. We travel any -

                                              Our shop can import, license and do any necessary work

                                              from our detailed pre-purchase inspection.

         Peter Lubig -   There are a wide variety of maintenance standards and
                                              our report will help you to know what you are buying and

                                              If you are selling a Navajo, we do an analysis of your air -
                                              plane and inform you where it rates on maintenance and
                                              salability. Up to date Navajo's are very desirable and
                                              saleable. Time life items service bulletins and AWD's are
                                              covered in our report and will help to establish a fair
                                              price for your aircraft. It's better for you to know what
                                              you have when you are selling, rather than to take a
                                              price beating afterwards.
