Some Of The Other Aircraft We And Saw During AERO 2018

These are by far not all the pictures we’ve got to share from this years AERO Expo in Friedrichshafen. An impressive appearance made the now EASA & FAA certified Pilatus PC-24. The aircraft which is capable of operation from unimproved fields is single pilot certified. The company states that with currently 84+ ordered aircraft, the books are well filled into 2020. The Swiss manufacturer also had a PC-12NG on display at the show.

Robert J. Collier Trophy winning Cirrus was displaying its SF50 Vision Jet at the show. Aiming at the upgrading Cirrus SR20/22 owner, the jet seeks to make the transition and upgrade training easy and simple. The small jet is available with a CAPS parachute system.

DAHER was presented with its TBM 910 and TBM 930 platform and beside the new “MyTBM” App for pilots, the 2018 models will be available with optional heated seats, together with better lighting options for the middle console of the aircraft. We experienced our best time and some exquisite French hospitality at the DAHER stand and a personal thanks goes out to Philippe de Segovia and Petra Steffen from RAS for the nice chat!

Mentioned was aircraft manufacturer VulcanAir, with both the P 68 Observer 2 and the V10 Trainer. The P68 line just received its EASA STC to operate in knowing icing (FIKI) conditions. Vulcan’s CEO Remo De Feo tells us that the trainer has been incredibly well received in EASA Land.

Diamond Aircraft had its new and coming DA50V aircraft on display as well and it looks a lot bigger in person than on the pictures. Impressive performance numbers to boot and definitely worth a look.

We also got to meet and chat with Mark Brown who was on site with a customers Quest Aircraft Kodiak. Unfortunately this particular aircraft wasn’t available for demo flights – but we look forward to see this happen in the future. As you know, we’ve featured a lot of news about the Kodiak on Seaplanemagazine.com – so it was great to finally shake hands and say hello personally.

There is much more to share and we hope you stay tuned for the next batch of pictures on our online magazine.
