Its a shame that Catto lost out on their name in the ariticle. Several mistakes in the article made for sure.

I had the same thoughts. As I read the article I was bewildered several times and wondered how things get so twisted from what is discussed, tested and reported in the Just Aircraft circles.
Also I was concerned about the long lead times I have been hearing on the Catto props so I oredered one in early May and it shipped May 28th. I'm back overseas now so I won't get to see it for a month but I'll take some pics and post when I get back.
Take Care,

This is why I believe very little of what the media reports. People who are new to a subject are given a crash course and then are responsible for explaining it to the masses. Thank goodness thats not how flight instruction works...

Still good exposure for JA though.
Best,

Do the SS's really cruise at 87kts?
Or is that supposed be 87mph?

John
There are many things that happen really fast when you are
flying an airplane. There is no sense in rushing any of the others.

I would much rather be looking down at the runway, than up at it.
