BUSHCAT - TAILWHEEL
The BushCat is the third and latest generation of the aircraft previously known as the Cheetah. It is an aircraft which has been designed around four principles: Simplicity, ruggedness, low cost and FUN!
The original Cheetah LSA was a robust and reliable work horse. It quickly gained popularity among the South African bush flying community, and earned its reputation as a fun flying utility aircraft. Aerodynamic and ergonomic improvements were later made to the aircraft, as well as modifications from worldwide customer feedback, which resulted in the second generation Cheetah XLS.
It soon became clear that the role of the aircraft was to serve bush pilots in areas that other light sport aircraft just couldn’t handle. As a result, the focus moved toward making the aeroplane tougher than any other in its class, and able to withstand the might of the veld and tundra – as a result the BushCat was born.
Since then the BushCat has continued to serve its duties as a bush aeroplane and is being successfully used in anti-wildlife-poaching missions in various regions of Africa. More BushCats are on order by conservation entities for this very purpose as it meets the very specific requirements of these missions.
The aircraft is extremely comfortable with the widest cabin in its class and offers generous headroom making the aircraft perfect for all sizes of pilots.
Due to its simplistic modular design, the aircraft is extremely easy to work on thus reducing the cost of maintenance and repair to a minimum.
Available in nose-wheel and tail-dragger configurations, the aircraft also caters for all preferences. At the 2013 EAA Airventure Oshkosh convention, SkyReach proudly rolled out its Amphibian option, turning heads in the process. The price, performance and cheeky looks of the aircraft capturing the attention of many.
The BushCat demonstrates great performance and STOL ability – at the best price!
Bravo P2004 Tecnam light sport aircraft LSA / Advanced Ultralight
The Tecnam P2004 Bravo was introduced to the light sport aircraft market in the early 2000's. The Bravo is a single-engine light sport aircraft with a, cantilevered, high wing, side by side seating, in a tractor configuration. The Tecnam P2004 Bravo is a multi-purpose aircraft that be used for the both recreational sport flying or as a two seat LSA trainer.
With the creation of the Sport Pilot rule and the Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) category, dreams of becoming a licensed pilot became more feasible for the average pilot. Tecnam, an Italian firm, has been building aircraft since 1948. The Tecnam P2004 Bravo is an attractive tricycle model that features a tapered cantilever wing with electrically operated flaps. The P2004 Bravo has a stabilator, and its empty weight is 620 pounds. Wingspan is 27.55 feet from and the length measures 21.56 feet.
From a distance the P2004 Bravo slightly resembles a Cessna 150 or 152, without wing struts, but the overall performance is superior. Power is supplied by the Rotax 912 ULS powerplant capable of 100 horsepower and a two-blade composite covered wooden propeller.
The instrument panel contains both standard instruments and an electronic alternative which should satisfy nearly every pilot’s preferences. Two people easily fit into the wide cabin, which features leather upholstery. Maximum speed in level flight at maximum continuous power is 120 knots, and the never exceed speed is 138 knots, with a service ceiling of 13,110 feet.
Pilot visibility is very good, and taxiing the P2004 Bravo is easy using the rudder pedals and steerable nosewheel.
After applying full throttle, the aircraft gains speed rapidly, but torque is noticeable. A slight amount of opposite rudder will easily compensate. The Tecnam will lift off after a slight rearward movement of the control yoke. The best climbing rate is at 68 knots of Indicated Air Speed, and cruising speed ranges from 100-113 knots. The P2004 Bravo is very responsive to the controls.

Bravo flies with the usual Tecnam natural feel and cruises toward the upper end of the LSA/ Advanced Ultralight spectrum.
