Newsletter 33 – March 2006

Welcome to Newsletter 33 – the latest edition of the Pipistrel aircraft newsletter, my apologies for the year short delivery between Newsletter 32 and Newsletter 33 but some very important information has been sent to me from the factory which I wanted to share marking a milestone for Pipistrel.

200th Aircraft of Sinus – Virus Family is Flying

From the desk of Mr. Ivo Boscarol, the director of Pipistrel…..

This is another great moment for Pipistrel !

The 200th aircraft of the Sinus – Virus family made her maiden test flight on 9 March 2006

Serial number 200, which is a Sinus 912 Nose Wheel is still in test flight stage but will be on her way to her new home in Taiwan shortly.

The aircraft wears special anniversary markings as promised and looks even better in person than on the photograph.

We hope you will all join us in recognizing this important milestone in Pipistrels’ history and look forward to bringing you serial number 300 in the not too distant future.
