We're sure excited to be on the 2011 Goodyear Aviation Calendar!! A huge thank you to Goodyear and all involved with the photo shoot. Last but not least, the Nalbone brothers for their vision and involvement in creating this unique airplane. The calendar is available from the Goodyear Aviation Tires web page or Aircraft Spruce;


It's been tricky keeping this one under our hat, especially since I'm (ben) known to be the big mouth of the family. This panned out at Oshkosh this year. We really had fun with the folks from Goodyear. RARE won't be publishing any of these photos on our site and won't have the calendar available through us but, you'll be sure to see one on our wall.

Step Back In Time

We're pleased to be able to share a piece written by our Taperwing Customer Dennis Guentzel of Bozeman Montana. This was recently published in the RNPA, Retired Northwest Pilots Association, magazine, Contrails. Photo credit and layout to Gary Ferguson, story written by Dennis Guentzel, published in Contrails magazine RNPA.

It's always fun to see how customer's "use" their airplane. I think it's safe to say that Denny gets some serious enjoyment out of his Taperwing and maximizes that potential by leaving the local pattern for some adventure. Not only a pilot, he's a bit of a gear head too! Vintage Porsche's, racing boats and owning airplanes have made him quite capable of some heavy wrenching and keeping the Taperwing in tip-top shape. Hope you enjoy this article as much as we did and as much as Dennis does flying his Taperwing!
