    What did Steve Fosset accomplish in Rutan's world-circling plane?
     
  4. I read that article when it came out. Quite impressive!

    With expense being a big issue for most general aviation pilots, one has to wonder why engine manufacturers didn't adopt the EFI/FADEC approach years ago.

    Better still, turbocharged diesels show even more promise in terms of greater power throughout the climb and on hot, high-altitude takeoffs, while delivering better efficiency for any given velocity at altitude.
