When Dan Johnson was with us last week, we didn't even begin to cover everything that happened at the AERO show in Germany. This time we focus on some of the happenings in the ASTM meetings and in the electric aircraft world.
Dan Johnson is back from the AERO event in Germany and gives us a report on new products from the premier event in Germany for sport and microlight aviation.
Dan Johnson held forth in the LSA Mall at Sun 'n Fun last week. We talk with him about how the light sport vendors did both in sales and in weather survival. We also talk about some of the great improvements over in Paradise City this year.
Sun 'n Fun is coming up in just a couple of weeks and Dan visits with us about some of the things we can expect at the show.

Sonex's single-place airplane made its first flight and Jeremy Monnett joins us to talk about how it went.

It’ll be the SportCruiser as it was before Piper assumed worldwide distribution. Widely reported in aviation media, Piper abruptly ended their almost-year-long relationship with manufacturer CSA in what ...

Dan talks about what happened, what is going on, and what Piper may be doing in the future. He also talks about the LSA barnstorming tour some LSA manufactures went on in Florida after the Sebring event.
