Team Bede was in force last week for a great show at Oshkosh 2014. We had 4 airplanes at the booth including the brand new BD-22L and a BD-5J. With over 500,000 recorded attendees at the show we were very busy showing off our fleet of airplanes and showing the excellent features of our GA and Light Sport airplanes. It was also very exciting to see a BD-5J flying in the show and doing such a fantastic routine.
Feedback has been extremely positive and people seemed very excited to learn about our new builder assist options on the BD-4C, BD-17, BD-17L and BD-22L. We now look to work on welcoming all interested parties to take advantage of the builder assist facility and start work on their next and greatest airplane with us.
The weather was for the most part fantastic with just a couple of "rain delays." There seemed to be less heat and humidity than in the past and we all thoroughly enjoyed talking about our airplanes with everyone who stopped by to see us. Please enjoy some photos taken at the booth and from the flight line.
Meanwhile.....back in Florida!
The work continues in Fort Pierce in earnest to open the doors on our new facility. This week sees a new floor in the builder assist center going in and we are edging ever closer to being able to welcome kit builders to come and see us. Please stay posted for news and monitor our Facebook page or website to find updates and current news and events.
Assembly continues on the BD-4C in Fort Pierce and all signs point to this being a record build in terms of hours. Our team are perfecting the process of a quick build on the BD-4 and we are excited to bring all that we have learned during this assembly to our current and future builders alike.
We were so pleased to have seen so many of our existing owners come a visit us during the week of Oshkosh. Some flew in and some just stopped by to report on build progress, flying stories or just to sit and enjoy a cold water with us at our booth. You make the week so much more enjoyable and we thoroughly enjoy your company! Many of you even took the time to swap jokes with Jim which is always an entertaining prospect!
