    Default Turbine Legacy

    Hey Guys,

    Last year's winner of the Mojave Experimental Flyin Experimenter of the year trophy Mike Patey is at it again. This time putting a PT-6 on a new highly modified Lancair Legacy. The program is aggressive both in schedule and in engineering, and we are psyched to watch.

    Check it out!

    Will he be able to run for the records he broke last year or was that piston powered only?

    Piston is a different class from turbine is a different class from turbo prop.

    Which means a whole new group of records to go for!!

    Get psyched!

    I guess it's safe to assume that this Turbulence will have the carbon-fiber wrap for the tail for the extra speed/loads.

    very cool!

    I can't help but wonder if a guy with this much energy, time and coinage is interested in the Unlimited Class...?
