Today we are joined on the podcast by Burt Rutan!
Burt Rutan is perhaps the most famous aerospace engineer in the world known for his many, many innovative designs that have marveled people for decades. He is known for dozens of designs including the Voyager which is an extremely efficient airplane designed to circle the planet without stopping or refueling.
Burt takes a moment to fill us in on his current all consuming project the SkiGull which he shares many details with us that have not been shared before. Burt is hoping to have his new design finished in time to fly to EAA Airventure Oshkosh and display the plane.
Perhaps Burt's most famous design, SpaceShipOne and it's mothership White Knight are now going to be released to the public through Rutan RC. We encourage you to support the Kickstarter like we did!
