Hey Charles, and Brian.
You guys by chance aren't talking about the "Impulse" design in Germany are
you?
They designed a series of very cool looking aircraft(taildragger was one
sleek airplane!)that used anything from a Rotax 912 on up to a really hot
one with a turbine.

If I understand correctly, they had so many people willing to spend the $$$
to buy the turbine one, they essentially killed off all the other models.
They DID have a nice website, but it is also history now.
I know of no way to contact any of the principals involved....I did have a
couple of their email addys, but when I requested info, they basically told
me "we are to busy to talk to you"....!

Charles,
Interesting airplane, but not the one that I'm thinking of. I've got a
picture of it saved at work and I'll see if I can find what the company is
tomorrow. Can't remember at all the name of the company. I know it's
overseas though, Brian W.

Rick,
You got it, the Capco Impulse Xtreme! Turbine powered, 310mph at full
throttle, cruise at 264mph, burning 15gph and climbs at 8000 feet per
minute! Couldn't find a power rating there though. Take a look:

aircraft, but the turboprop at the bottom of the page looks like a hoot.
Thanks, Brian W.
