Because manufacturers are not going to spend all the R&D money on a 2nd tier class. Especially if there are going to be homologation implications.

GA pilot here (my company owns 2 206's like this, among others) - low, slow, and in a steeply banked turn is NO place to be. Even guys with Redbull logos on their wings don’t do it slow. I don’t see or hear any evidence of mechanical failure, which says this is very, very poor decision making by the pilot. From the Read more

As an engineer I love seeing advancement of technology, but this does seem on point that how many millions of dollars are we spending for a minuscule advancement that does not make the racing better, and everyone else figures it out eventually so you have to keep doing it. As a broader society there has to be a better Read more

It seems that at this point some people would rather default to being butthurt than do any critical thinking or research. I wonder how many of the people who thought this might be a slight against America or the flag own apparel or bumper stickers that DO in fact infract upon the flag code?

A girl at my high school got basically trampled by a deer while running a cross country race once. Honestly it was awful, and I’ve never looked at deer the same way since.
