Thanks for the topic.... You are so cool....Love your last post on another topic.... There are about 50 Allegro's in the US. In 2007 there was a style change (Hence Allergo 2000 vs 2007) that increased cabin width, fuel capicity, enlarged rudder area which made the airplane more stable and less rudder dependant (Eaiser to fly!!) I hope to hear from Jim Hazen from Mesa, Az who never had flown, got his Sport Pilot license at around 58-60 years old and has now landed in all 48 continuous states...In an Allegro 2000...He purchased the Allegro 2000 from Falcon Executive Avaition in Mesa Az where received his training. Now that is a cool story. Allegro has sort of been on hold the last two years but now the plane will be built in the USA (Oregon) by Sadler Aviation (Viper LSA). Previously made in the Check Republic.. . We hope the see sales start back up and start to climb in the ratings. Still around number 11 with no planes sold in 2 years.
The Allegro is about the only LSA to feature a high wing and a T Tail... All composite body with metal wings and tail.. Lands very similar to most LSA's.( Ct's too!) Something I wish my CFI had known. I spent many, many hours being taught a power off, full flap, full stall landing. After I was allowed to solo, and reading comments here and on CTFLYER.COM, it slowley has come out over the last year or so that LSA land different... A little power on landing and fly it onto the ground makes a world of difference..
More from me later and I am looking forward to seeing a bunch of you in Page this year
