June 1 – “Round & Out of This World … A History of Burt Rutan from a VariEze Builder’s Perspective!” narrated by returning author and historian John Lambert
A History of Burt Rutan from a VariEz Builder’s Perspective!” narrated by returning author and historian John Lambert. Best known for his world record around the world nonstop flight with co-pilot Jeana Yeager, Rutan has been an aviation trailblazer with his aircraft designs. From the Voyager that set the world record to his collaboration with Sir Richard Branson for their Spaceships, Burt Rutan has been on the leading edge of innovative design and engineering. Presented by John Lambert, who has built and flown Rutan’s VariEz kit plane.
“You can always tell a Burt Rutan airplane, just as you can always tell a Dr. Seuss drawing or a Beatles song. It’s not only the configurations — though canards, winglets, or twin booms sometimes give them away. It’s not just the materials, though composites have been key to Rutan’s achievements and helped make him the hero of the homebuilder. And it’s not just the futurism, though Rutan designs always look like they flew in from a decade off in the distance. There’s some other quality rolled up with those three that makes you know it’s a Rutan. We think of it as playfulness.” The Editors , Air & Space Magazine, January 2012
