Racing

I would like to thank our sponsors for helping me get Unleashed to the air races.
Aviation Solutions LLCAviation Solutions LLC has been covering all of my airplanes since my Cessna 150 days and I was proud to have them as my Primary Sponsor for the 2014 Reno Air Races.  Please visit their website www.AviationSolutions.aero for more information.

 

Airflow Performance IncI am very happy to have switched to a brand new Airflow Performance FM-200A fuel servo this year thanks to the support from Don Rivera.  This new servo appears to not only offer more manifold pressure, but also maintain the correct air/fuel ratio well into the high RPM’s.  Something the old servo would not do.  Only a few test flights so far, but things are looking really good for 2014!  Contact Airflow Performance Inc to improve your setup!

BeringerAnother major sponsor and set of improvements for Unleashed are in the form of new wheels and brakes made by Beringer.  I am VERY happy to remove the old system and gain so many things.  Tubless tires, sealed bearings, brakes that work, anti-skid pressure regulator and more!  Contact Beringer for the best wheels and brakes for your airplane today!

Advanced Aero ComponentsAdvanced Aero Components has been making beautiful parts for experimental aircraft that not only look great, they perform even better!  Unleashed is now using their Air/Oil separator and we don’t even clean the belly anymore.  What a great product.

R & D American AviationR & D American Aviation is a great family owned and operated maintenance facility located at my home airport Lee’s Summit Missouri. (KLXT)  Without the support I got from everyone at R & D, I wouldn’t have had the airplane done in time.  If you need anything from a pre-buy, annual inspection, or major repair, please visit R & D American Aviation.

EAA Chapter 91My local EAA Chapter 91 was also a huge part of my success this year.  Not only the chapter itself helped, but its many very capable members with a vast skill set help me overcome many of my challenges modifying my airplane.  My first airplane ride was at a Chapter 91 Young Eagles event and I enjoy sharing that experience with Young Eagles myself. (When the airplane is assembled that is..)  Please if you have a local EAA Chapter, please support it to help continue experimental aviation.

Special thanks to Donald McMullin.
