Brazilian Red Bull Foxbat

A22 Red Bull 01My colleague and fellow Aeroprakt agent in Brazil – Wander Azevedo – has sent me a selection of photos of a new metallic grey Foxbat, decorated in Red Bull colours. It certainly looks good!

Maybe we should organise some of these unusual colour schemes in Australia…

Brazilian Foxbat – a trio of videos

Here is a very nice set of three videos from Eduardo Fernandes Gontijo, A22LS owner in Brazil. Although fairly long – 6-11 minutes each, they show great views of the interior of this vast South American country. The music is good, even relaxing, and the various view points he’s used for the cameras also adds interest. It’s also good to see the aircraft being used to visit friends!

I can’t be certain but it looks like Eduardo has an MGL iEFIS installed in his A22LS with maybe a Garmin 695/795 for navigation. So far in Australia we have installed mainly Dynon equipment – anyone any experience of these large MGL screens?

Anyway – thanks for the video links Eduardo, it looks like you are enjoying your flying!

As usual, click on the photos to go to the YouTube page for viewing.

World Cup celebration – Foxbat Brazilian style

To celebrate the start of the world cup in Brazil, I thought you’d like to see some examples of the A22 Foxbat, Brazilian style.

There are some very attractive and eye-catching paint jobs and some interesting instrument panels. And one photo I would definitely advise not trying at home…

Have a look in the photo gallery at the bottom right side of this blog for further pictures.

Many thanks to my colleague Wander Azevedo of FLY Ultraleves, Aeroprakt distributor for Brazil, based in Goiania, south west of Brasilia.
