I'm pretty sure that the Cessna model number was the 337. You did need a multi-engine rating to fly it, but you could get a rating that would enable you to fly multiengine aircraft, but was limited to centerline thrust only. With this rating, one could fly the Skymster, but not a different twin whose engines were mounted on the wings.

Hiroshi, one addition to your post. The Voyager is no longer the only aircraft to fly nonstop around the world unrefueled. Steve Fossett did it recently in a jet powered aircraft, and he did it solo!

I had heard something about that, but obviously I missed the event. I don't keep up with this stuff much anymore.

Thanks for the correction and the update. With a name like propwash, it stands to reason you would be in the know

Here's another Rutan design, The Quickie. A home built that the pilot almost has to wear! http://tswill2.smugmug.com/photos/14752625-M.jpg

I've been in the LongEZ and its not much wider or bigger, the only difference is that it's a tandem 2 seater, but it's "veri-ez" to slip into for a very "cozy" fit and at 200mph its a scream.:G:G:G

But would you like to be the FIRST to fly it?
