Cessna's SkyCatcher nearly here

Cessna's C162 - the SkyCatcher - is now compliant with the ASTM standards used for LSA (Light Sport Aircraft)in the US. According to Cessna, deliveries are due to start later this year, with November looking likely, although many observers and deposit holders believe that only in 2010 will significant numbers start to be delivered.

The SkyCatcher features a stick-cum-yoke arrangement, a Continental O-200 and a Garmin G300 glass panel.

I overheard a couple of visitors talking while standing by the SkyCatcher...
"Look at that 'ole Coninennal"
"Yup, bedder dan dat Rowtaix thing. Shame dere building it in China"
