LOUDENSLAGER LASER 200
Leo Loudenslager built the Laser 200 for competition aerobatics and the goal of winning a world aerobatic title. Ultimately, Loudenslager and his Laser were so successful that he won an unprecedented seven U.S. National Aerobatic Champion titles, a record that still stands, and the 1980 World Champion title. Loudenslager's legacy is evident in the design characteristics and performance of current aerobatic aircraft, powerful and agile monoplanes, and in the tumbling and twisting but precise routines flown by current champions and airshow pilots.
Loudenslager learned to fly in 1962 when he was a mechanic in the U.S. Air Force and his flying skills immediately impressed his instructors. He became a certified flight instructor and co-operated a fixed base operation at Vacaville Aiport in California before joining American Airlines as a pilot. When Leo attended the 1964 Reno Air Races, he was so impressed by the flights of legends Duane Cole in his clipped-wing Taylorcraft and Bob Hoover in his North American P-51 Mustang that he decided to become an aerobatic competitor.
In the late 1960s, Loudenslager decided to build an aerobatic airplane but decided against one like the popular, though not yet dominant Pitts Special, the deHavilland Chipmunk, or the Czech Zlin. Instead he ordered plans for a sleek new design by Clayton Stephens, the Stephens Akro. The Akro was a midwing monoplane inspired by European aerobatic aircraft. Stephens and George Ritchie designed the aircraft for Ritchie's wife Margaret, an aerobatic competitor, and Ed Allenbaugh refined and engineered the design. Loudenslager bought plans and began work on the fuselage and tail while Stephens built the wings. Margaret Ritchie was killed in her Akro, but the cause was determined not to be design-related so Loudenslager continued his work.
His Akro first flew in April 1971, but he continued to modify the aircraft, still searching for perfection, in the forms of better rates of climb and roll and overall strength of the airplane. He remodeled it continuously and, in 1975, finally ended by cutting the aircraft in half and building an entirely new aircraft from the cockpit forward. Changes included modified airfoil and wing, and several forward fuselages, tails, instrument panels, propellers, spinners, and turtledecks. Only about 10 percent of the original Stephens Akro remained, specifically the tail-cone behind the pilot running to the tail section. The aircraft's data plate still labels the aircraft as a Stephens Akro, but this was because, as a matter of expediency, Loudenslager never requested a new one bearing the Laser designation. Only six months passed from the time when he embarked on the major rebuild until the 1975 national championship, and he did not have time for paperwork. He also wanted to keep the registration number N10LL.
When the Laser 200, resplendent in blue and yellow, emerged, it was lighter, stronger, and more powerful, with a 200 hp engine. These modifications allowed Loudenslager to perform more difficult and sharper maneuvers with seemingly endless rolls throughout the sequence. Loudenslager and the Laser could fly at more than 230 mph and endure gravity forces up to 9 Gs. Mattituck Engines modified the Lycoming engine to achieve maximum performance under these stressful conditions. The aircraft is made of steel tubes with fabric-covered fuselage and tail section. The single-piece wing consists of a spruce spar reinforced with birch plywood caps on bottom and top, to prevent the cracking of the spar near the wing root, as happened in the Akro. The plywood and spruce ribs are covered in 1/8th inch mahogany skin.
In 1971, Loudenlagser competed in his first contest at the second level of competition and then immediately proceeded to the highest level, unlimited. He flew at the U.S. nationals and amazingly came in eighth in the men's division. He won his first U.S. National Championship title in 1975 and repeated in '76, '77, and '78, and then again in '80, '81, and '82. Aerobatic champion and judge Clint McHenry once said he had only seen two perfect aerobatic routines, and both were flown by Loudenslager. Loudenslager retired from competition flight in 1983 but continued to fly at airshows around the country until his death (not flight related) in 1997. In 1983, the Laser was painted in the brilliant red Bud Light scheme to reflect its sponsorship.
The Laser 200 heavily influenced the next generation of aerobatic aircraft, including the Extra, which dominated competition throughout the 1990s. Monoplanes have less drag, full-length ailerons for crisp maneuvers, and, for the judges, better presentation in the sky than biplanes. The monoplane design offers a stronger frame so that more powerful engines can be attached to provide power for high power but precise maneuvers.
N10LL is one of about five or six Laser aircraft, and others, with significant modifications, have been built from Laser plans. Carolyn and Kelly
Barry's Bay, Ontario-Zurakowski Park
Janusz Zurakowski (12 September 1909 – 9 February 2004) was a renowned Polish fighter and test pilot, who, at various times, lived and worked in Poland, the United Kingdom and Canada.
Zurakowski was born to Polish parents in 1909 in Ryzawka, which had been a city of the Russian Empire since 1864 when the Russians abolished the Congress Kingdom of Poland. In 1921, following the Polish-Soviet War, the Treaty of Riga established the frontier between Soviet Russia and the Second Polish Republic. The new border placed Ryzawka in Soviet territory and the Zurakowski family left their home and escaped into the newly established Polish Republic.
Zurakowski was educated in Lublin and while at high school, he learned to fly gliders. In 1934, Zurakowski joined the Polish Air Force and entered the Polish Air Force Officers' School. After learning to fly powered aircraft in 1935, and graduating as a Sub-Lieutenant, he went on to serve as a fighter pilot posted to 161 Fighter Squadron in Lwow, and later, in 1939, as a flying instructor at Deblin.
Second World War
In September 1939, "Black September", Zurakowski had his combat debut in an outmoded PZL P.7 trainer against a flight of seven German Dornier 17s attacking Deblin on 2 September. He managed to damage a Do 17 but was forced to break off combat when his guns jammed.
Following the defeat of Poland, Zurakowski made his way to England via Rumania and France. Like many of his compatriots, he was smuggled out of the war zone with false documents and a new identity as a forester. Thousands of the Polish Air Force pilots who had made their way to France fought against Luftwaffe forces in the Battle of France. Zurakowski was originally posted to a fighter unit in France before he was selected to train as a bomber pilot in England. Once he arrived in England, the RAF changed its mind and sent him and the first group of Poles to fighter squadrons which were rapidly being deployed in anticipation of an attack on Britain in 1940.
Zurakowski was first posted as a Pilot Officer to 152 Squadron before joining No 234 Squadron initially stationed at RAF St Eval, Cornwall, a town named after the patron saint of flight testing. The squadron was moved forward to RAF Middle Wallop on 13 August 1940. He flew the Spitfire Mk. 1 against the Luftwaffe shooting down a Messerschmitt Bf-110 over the Isle of Wight on 15 August 1940. After being shot down nine days later, he returned to duty, shooting down two Bf-109Es on the 12th and 13th day after that. Near the conclusion of the Battle of Britain, he scored a "probable" over a Bf-110C on 29 September 1940. Following the decimation of 234 Squadron and its transfer to the north, Zurakowski asked for a transfer to No. 609 Squadron RAF, a Spitfire unit still in the front lines. From there, he was reposted as a flight instructor to a succession of Flight Training Units where he passed on his knowledge of combat flying to a new group of fighter pilots.
In 1942, now Flying Officer Zurakowski flew again with his countrymen on Spitfire IIs in No 315 Squadron rising to the post of Squadron Leader of No 316 Polish Fighter Squadron and Deputy Wing leader of Polish No 1 Fighter Wing stationed at RAF Northolt, often escorting USAAF bombers on daylight bombing raids. Zurakowski scored a probable over a Me-109G on 17 May 1943 while acting as the Wing Gunnery Officer. He was awarded the Virtuti Militari, the Polish equivalent of the Victoria Cross in 1943. Other awards included the Polish Cross of Valor (Krzyz Walecznych) and Bar (1941) and Second Bar (1943).
After the war, Poland's Soviet-imposed communist government exiled all of the Polish fighter pilots who had flown with the RAF as part of a ploy to downplay Polish patriotism. As a result, S/L Zurakowski, among many other Polish war heroes, chose to stay in Britain. In 1944, he was posted to the Empire Test Pilots' School, graduating from No. 2 Course on 5 January 1945. From 1945 to 1947 Zurakowski worked as a test pilot with "C" Squadron of the Aeroplane and Armament Experimental Establishment (A&AEE) at RAF Boscombe Down, testing naval aircraft for the Air Ministry. Never having landed an aircraft on a carrier before, he practised landing on a deck painted on a runway at Naval Air Station East Haven. Following a brief training period, he proceeded to land the Supermarine Seafire, a navalised Spitfire, on the deck of HMS Ravager without incident.
While still at Boscombe Down, Zurakowski also flew, among over 30 different types, the Vampire, the de Havilland Hornet and the Gloster Meteor never letting pass, "an opportunity to give the staff a display that included single engine aerobatics." Acknowledged as one of the best aerobatic pilots in the UK, he gave a spectacular display at the Farnborough Airshow in June 1946, with the Martin-Baker MB 5, a piston-engined fighter designed too late to enter production.

flight instructor flight maneuvers
Flight Instructor Flight Maneuvers and Practical Test Prep is designed to SIMPLIFY and FACILITATE your flight instructor training in a single-engine land airplane. This book teaches you how to instruct each flight maneuver or other subject area (such as preflight preparation) prior to your flight lesson. Thus, you will be thoroughly prepared to spend more quality time in the airplane. Additionally, this book serves as an excellent review prior to your FAA practical (flight) test. We carefully designed Flight Instructor Flight Maneuvers and Practical Test Prep to make it easy for you to learn and understand. For example 1. We outline and illustrate each flight maneuver you will perform during your flight training. You will know what to expect and what to do before your instructor demonstrates how to instruct the maneuver. You will learn faster because you will understand what to do. 2. We have included discussion of the FAA's list of common errors made during each flight maneuver. This will help you learn from others' mistakes. 3. Each FAA practical test task is explained in terms of what your FAA-designated examiner, or FAA inspector, may expect you to interpret or demonstrate. You will be thoroughly prepared to complete your practical test confidently and successfully. 4. Finally, we help you focus on gaining practical test standard proficiency as quickly as possible to prepare you for your FAA practical (flight) test. Additionally, this book contains the FAA Flight Instructor (single-engine land airplane) Practical Test Standards reprinted verbatim.
