Lane Aviation host first stop of 2016 502XP American Expedition
The 2016 502XP American Expedition, a nationwide tour of Air Tractor’s new 502XP kicked off with demonstration flights and bar-b-que at Lane Aviation in Rosenberg, TX. Representatives from Air Tractor, Pratt & Whitney Canada and Lane Aviation were on hand to answer any questions about the new aircraft, and to allow pilots to take the 502XP on a test flight.
“This aircraft handled itself well compared to a 502B, hauled the load really well and a very fast aircraft” commented Dan Kubecka. Kubecka loaded the aircraft with 500 gallons for his flight, and with years of previously testing Air Tractors, was impressed with the characteristics of the new 502XP.
