Project Teenflight is auctioning this beautiful, approximately 50-hour old E-LSA RV-12 to raise funds for the next group of teenage builders. The plane was built by high school students during the 2014 and 2015 school years under close supervision of adult mentors, including Van himself. It flew to AirVenture and will return to its base in Hillboro, OR, following the show.
Opening bids will be at least $75,000 and the auction closes September 1st at 6pm Pacific time. A "buy-it-now" bid of $105,000 will close the auction sooner. More information on the auction email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To herald its entry into aviation communications, Dynon is offering a limited edition handheld radio. Some 100 compact aviation band transceivers were created as part of its plan to eventually supplement the SkyView glass panel system with a panel-mounted radio. As part of that program the company created handheld transceivers to learn about radio design, FCC Part 87 certification and radio production.
These 100 DX-15 limited edition handheld aviation radios are restricted to use in the United States and are being offered to U.S. pilots through a unique auction. To participate, bidders must visit Dynon’s web site and place a bid. A typical retail price for equivalent radios would be about $250, but starting bids as low as $75 will be accepted. Participants can bid only once, for up to two units. Shipping in the U.S. is free. Continue reading "Dynon Announces Handheld Radio Auction"
