Aero Sport is proud to annouce Walter Extra"s latest accomplishments. Earlier this week the all new Extra 200 was test flown and the flight enevelope has been expanded to include all spins, both nornal and flat, stability checks, VNE (220 knots), and normal maneuvers associated with US certification. The Lycoming IO 360 powered two place Extra will be certificated at 10 +/- G's. The airplane is presently logging it's first cross country time in the cargo hold of a 747 and will make it's first public appearence at Sun & Fun next week. Look for the most beautifull yellow, red, and blue airplane and you'll have found us! As if this accomplishment wasn't enough, Walter Extra ended his week by making the first flight on the new Extra 400. The 400 is an all composite, six place, pressurized retractable with a projected cruise speed of 248 knots. Look for the 400 at Oshkosh this year. We congratulate Walter and the fine staff of Extra. Can anyone remember the last time any manufacture completed two airplanes and test flew both of them in the same week? An amazing feat! Jim Moser Aero Sport Inc. P.O.
