NASA's New Wing Technology
Is an 18 propeller plane in our future? NASA through the LEAPTech (Leading Edge Asynchronous Propellers Technology project is developing an efficient electric powered aircraft. Using a 31 foot carbon composite wing, 18 propellers, each with its own small engine, will be powered by its own lithium iron phosphate battery. Cruising speed is planned to be at between 200-230 mph. Interesting is that each propeller will be able to operate independently at various speeds. Wow, we wonder what that cockpit panel will look like!

About Tailwinds
Hi! Im Nancy and this is a photo of me from the 1992 Around the World Air Race. Im holding what is left of a spinner from the Tailwinds World Flyer, a Piper PA-39 Twin Comanche. The rest of the spinner had crashed into the windshield leaving a 5 inch gaping hole as we were racing over southern France approaching Cannes. We had just flown over 12 hours from Nuuk, Greenland and were racing for first place. The sun had risen and fortunately I had put on my sunglasses so there was no eye damage as the glass flew into the cockpit and into my face. Such are the mishaps and adventures of cross country air racing. And adventure is one of the reasons why I love aviation!
Tailwinds began as a catalog operation in 1986 on the kitchen table of one of our founders, Marion Jayne. Marion was my mother, personal CFI, and pilot extraordinaire! She was the 12th woman in the United States to earn her ATP rating, and was honored as one of the top 100 aviators of the century at Kitty Hawk in 2003. We began Tailwinds because we wanted to offer products that represented the love of aviation and the celebration of flight. We’ve had tremendous growth since we published our first catalog, but our founding principles remain the same. Our goal is to provide a pleasant shopping experience featuring only quality products and top-notch customer service.
