Beech and aircraft designer T.A. “Ted” Wells. A 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 Models B17 undergo an extensive redesign to create the D17 Staggerwing. These modifications not only improved the ruggedness, power and speed, but also enhanced the overall performance of the hand- crafted, luxurious cabin biplane. Gaining wide recognition and accept- ance the Beech Aircraft Corporation produced, between 1933 and 1949, 785 units, all versions, civilian and military with the D17S being the most numerous and broadly used. Pictured herewith is a 1938 Beech D17S Staggerwing, Tail #18777, s/n 200 from this year’s Fly-In and Sport Convention at Arlington, WA. Stats on the D17S generally are as follows: • Powerplant - P&W R985-AN-1 or AN-3 Wasp JR. (450-HP) • Empty Weight - 2540 lbs • Loaded Weight - 4250 lbs • Height - 8 feet • Max.

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. Further media information is available from: Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman and CEO Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, P.O.

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.” Head Office: 380-18799 Airport Way Pitt Meadows BC, V3Y 2B4 Local Ph.604-460-8787 Toronto Office: Local Fax 604-460-8788 Local Ph.905-910-0526 Toll Free 1-888-917-11177 Toll Free 1-888-917-1177 Toll Free Fax 1-866-372-2755 Toll Free Fax 1-866-372-2755 firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com Everything Aircraft Page 11 December 2009 General Aviation Airbags serious head-impact injury and enhance one's ability to exit the aircraft following an otherwise survivable acci- Nearly 80-percent of new general aviation airplanes are dent.

(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.

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.

R eno, Nevada - Sept. 20, 2009 - Jon Sharp completed an astounding run at the 46th Thunderbolt Competition Annual Reno National Championship Air Races by setting a new course record in the Super Series Sport Class Gold Heat. It was the fifth straight day of record-setting speeds for the Sharp's NemesisNXT and his fourth straight air race 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- ly faster, setting new course marks each time out. He had previously set the record for qualifying speed (412.554 mph) and he remains the only Sport Class competitor to surpass the 400-mph mark.
