Re: Turbine P-Baron

Here's the latest from Darwin at Rocket Engineering.



David, We are pleased to announce the first flight of the Turbine Cougar Baron.

The first flight was September 16,2008 and since then it has flown 4 more times.

The performance is better than expected and the flight and handling qualities are

very docile, much, much better than the original. Takeoff is awesome, power up to

500# torque, release brakes and in 6 seconds the aircraft is passing through 80 kias

with smooth rotation up to 140 kias and at full power (500 hp/side) the climb rate is

between 4000 to 5000 fpm. We have only been to 13,500 so far and 200 kias is

achieved on only 24 gallons per side.

We will have more data to send you in the next few weeks but I though you would

appreciate this info. I have flight tested for the FAA many aircraft and this is by far

the highest performance aircraft I have ever flown, the Ferrari of aircraft.
