A Very Wet 2019 Upsets Our Development Plans

Twice this year, early spring and late fall, our home airport, Tri-County Regional (LNR) has been severely flooded, closing runways, taxiways, ramps, the fuel system and navigational aids, and in some cases, invading hangars, the terminal/FBO and maintenance shop. This has made it very difficult to maintain our product development plans and caused us to loose most of 2019, having instead to "tread water."

While the LoCamp aircraft in our shop were not damaged, the hangar containing our kit parts inventory was flooded, causing loses inside.  We are still reorganizing and recovering as winter closes in early In Wisconsin.

Meanwhile a second Rotec R2800-powered LoCamp project now also under construction will be finished as well, unless sooner sold as a project to a Beta Builder.  See the earlier blog for the special pricing details.

As 2019 winds down, we can't say we're sorry to see it go. But we have big plans for 2020, including a move to a new shop hangar on higher, non-flooding ground on the airport, and the completion of prototyping projects for other engine options.  And we are especially excited about the prospect of offering completed, fly-away aircraft, built to the buyer's specifications.

Yes, were optimistic for the future. Let's hear from you!
