    Default Mission Patch

    Hey Guys,

    A month or so ago Jenn and I had the opportunity to help out on an Aero Chia race prepped Lancair Legacy. The airplane had some modification work done by Andy Chiavetta. It's owner Mac Hammond clearly has great taste. The panel was done by Jon Hadlich. The paint was laid out by Mirco Pecorari (http://www.mircopecorari.com/). The engine was done by Chris Padilla at Pacific Continental.

    The test program was this last winter, testing was done by Matt Jackson, Len Fox, with a little help from Wasabi Air Racing (Elliot Seguin, Jenn Whaley and Justin Gillen), as well as consulting work from Darryl Greenamyer and Mojave legends Dick Rutan, and Peter Siebold.

    What a pleasure to work with such talented and professional people!

    There was a minimum order on these patches and we have a few extra. We will be giving 5-10 away. If more envelopes come in than we have patches we promise we will send you something equally awesome.

    Send a self addressed stamped envelope to:
    Wasabi Air Racing
    PO Box 131
    Mojave CA
    93502

    What are you working on tonight?

    Thank you,
    Elliot and Jenn

    Correct. Race 33 is still around though, and would put up a hell of a fight with the right motor.

    Thanks Tom.

    I really think the Legacy looks great without the back windows.

    What engine are they using? Isn't Pacific Continental owned by the Jackson's?

    TSIO-550. About Pacific, yes that is my understanding.

    What a sweet running powerplant!

    Thanks for the posts, Elliot. That's certainly an interesting new Sport Class competitor.

    Are you at liberty to tell more? Will the owner, Mac, be the race pilot?

    Thanks FlyKidChris!

    As of right now my understanding is there isn't an intention to race the ariplane in 2014. But this thing would sure be a rocketship when it does race!
