Aero-News Network Inc has published a short review of the A22LS (Foxbat) on their YouTube channel AeroTV. Headlined ‘Versatile AND Practical – The All-Seeing Aeroprakt A-22 LSA’ AeroTV’s Tom Patton interviews Dennis Long, Aeroprakt’s USA dealer at the recent Deland Sport Aviation Showcase, held in Florida each year.
The video includes some rather old flying footage of an early Australian A22L, plus some newer video of a glider tug A22LS at Benalla in Victoria. The report gives Dennis a great opportunity to describe the aircraft and its capabilities – which he does excellently! I must remember some of the phrases he uses to use myself at the upcoming Avalon Airshow. Particularly coming to mind are: “…just the best handling light sport on the field.” And: “…taking off on gravel or sand, it does a very fine job of that because the nose comes up right away and you’re balancing just like a taildragger.”
God job, Dennis!
