I'd start by reading the product manuals from Hypertek and Contrail, which AFAIK are the only two that are still even sort of in production.Are there any good threads here I can read to learn more about legal hybrids?
You can read out the Aerotech hybrids on their website, e.g.:Didn't Aerotech do hybrids at some point, then drop them?
Early 2000's, some possible safety violations and / or inspection gaps, fire, possible improper firefighting, death, lawsuits.The AT documents are exactly the type of information I was looking for. I never would have known to look for hybrids at AT.
Somebody please tell me about the AT fire??
Since they don't make them any more it's really only of academic interest at this point.The AT documents are exactly the type of information I was looking for. I never would have known to look for hybrids at AT.
My friend Robin did his level 3 cert flight using a turbo hybrid.Aerotech had some 'classic' hybrids using an inert fuel (I believe paper) and nitrous with a small preheater APCP grain. They also had a version they referred to as a "Turbo", which were APCP grains (White Lightning?) throughout plus nitrous. I managed to witness an M Turbo demo and it was definitely cool. Not sure how many ever flew but glad I got to see one .
