MD3 Rider Added to Guinness Record-Holder's List and  First Italian-Built MD3 Rider Imported to U.S.

Space Coast Aviation Services ?

Space Coast Aviation Services president Ron Bearer, importer and distributor of the Flyltalia MD3 Rider was kept busy during Sun 'n Fun '08 showing off the MD3 and giving interested people flights in the high-wing aircraft.

One passenger turned out to be a celebrity of sorts. "He handed us a paper that listed news about him with pictures of a few of the aircraft [he's flown in]," explains

Space Coast Aviation Services president Ron Bearer. "His name is Edwin Shackelton and he's from England. He wanted to add the MD3 to his list of aircraft."

Turns out Shackleton is listed in Guinness World Records for the most aircraft flown as a passenger. According to Guinness, "As of January '07, Shackleton had flown in a total of 841 different types of aircraft. His first flight was in 1943 in a De Havilland DH 89 Dominie, and other aircraft have included balloons, airships, helicopters and microlights." "Of course we had to help," says Bearer, laughing. "He was really nice."

Several weeks after the Sun 'n Fun airshow, Space Coast Aviation Services and Flyltalia jointly announced the first Italian-built MD3 Rider has been imported into the United States and has been recognized to be in conformance with the ASTM Standard 2245-06 for design and performance of a light sport aircraft (LSA).

Bearer notes this is an historic moment for Flyltalia. "Flyltalia has finally brought the MD3 Rider home [to Italy] where its own workforce and practices can assure top quality and quick response to manufacturing demands," he says.

Bearer points out that although Flyltalia has always owned the design, earlier MD3 Riders were produced in the Czech Republic, the geographical and political distances sometimes leading to inefficient lags in communications, supplies, and various approvals. The new streamlined operation is very much to his liking. "This means we can now deliver in quantity and on schedule," Bearer says.
