Project Notebook: Retirement dream
from FLYING Magazine
According to author Pia Bergqvist: When legendary airplane designer Burt Rutan announced his retirement in 2011, a collective gasp rang through the aviation industry. Airplane enthusiasts wanted to see more of Rutan's ingenious and sometimes whacky designs. Fortunately it wasn't long before a sigh of relief followed the shock when details emerged of Rutan's latest project — SkiGull. SkiGull is the 47th aircraft designed by the award-winning engineer or produced by one of his companies.
