SUN ’n FUN Today -

A rare bird By MEG GODLEWSKI When you think corporate airplane, the image of Gulfstreams and Citation jets may come to mind. But the folks at ComLine Pro had something else in mind: A 1969 Polish-built PZL. The PZL attracts a lot of attention because it’s so unusual, not PZL Greg Custer, who notes there are only about three in the United States. Most people don’t recognize the plane, he added. “It was built under license from Yakelov Aircraft. It’s been called a Wilga, a Beaver, you name it.” The PZL was designed to be a Short Takeoff and Land (STOL) aircraft. It sports a 360-hp MP3P supercharged radial engine and leading edge slats that allow it to takeoff and land just about anywhere. The high-wing taildragger can be found in the single-engine warbird parking area. You can find ComLine Pro in Hangar D in the Head Sets Inc. booth.
