EPISODE #5 (Part 2) – René Petersen

Our Episode #5 (Part 2) – Greenland: The Last Frontier with René Petersen.

We had the chance to chat with René Petersen aka @rep.air from Greenland 🇬🇱
This is the second part of our episode five of TSC together with René Petersen from Greenland.

We further discuss about wild animals, René´s wish on rebuilding the only Super Cub in Greenland, safety chutes on bush planes, the use of slats both automatic (Super STOL) or pilot controlled (Zlin NORDEN), his plan on getting skis for his plane, finally the infamous bolter questionnaire.

If you want to watch René flying his Super STOL in Greenland, checkout his Instagram account – https://www.instagram.com/rep.air/
Talking about the automatic slats on Just Aircraft´s Super STOL, you will find very interesting videos showing them in action on René´s Instagram.
Zlin´s new NORDEN and especially it´s electrical slats can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGwBuaXinvg&t=145s

If you want to checkout the engine I am talking about, you can find some information on this publication: https://www.flyer.co.uk/scalewings-reveals-secret-hybrid-with-multiple-redundancy/ … unfortunately, no news has since been released on the development of this very interesting project.
