"No Future" For Cessna Skycatcher: CEO Scott Ernest
AVweb ^ | October 22, 2013 | Glenn Pew

Posted on 10/22/2013 4:26:49 PM PDT by taildragger

Cessna CEO Scott Ernest told aviation media at NBAA 2013 in Las Vegas the company's made-in-China S-LSA Skycatcher has "no future" but he didn't have much to say about it other than that.

"His answers were also short when he was asked about the progress of the diesel-powered Cessna TurboSkylane JT-A following the test article's off-airport landing earlier this year. Asked specifically about the Skycatcher, Ernest responded "There's no future for the Skycatcher." When asked if the company was ending production of the LSA, Ernest answered by repeating: "There's no future." Ernest told reporters that Cessna's TurboSkylane JT-A program was supported by the company. He declined to directly address the mishap and when asked if that meant the aircraft hasn't flown since the incident, Ernest said, "I just answered the question." So, AVweb asked for more details in a podcast interview with Jodi Noah, vice president of piston arircraft for the company.

Regarding the diesel TurboSkylane, Noah said the company was continuing with the program, but offered few more details other than that the project had Cessna's support. Asked specifically about the SkyCatcher, Noah said the company had sold about 20 of the aircraft and has an inventory of more that are available for sale. Ernest's comments after his presentation categorized the SkyCatcher program simply. "That program didn't have a business model that worked," he said. Business models that appear to be working for Cessna include those for the company's line of business jets. Still in development, the Cessna Latitude is on track for first flight early next year. The new Citation X could be certified as early as March of 2014, boasting a top speed of .935 Mach and regaining the title of fastest production business jet. And regarding the recently announced Scorpion Jet tandem seat military offering, Ernest said it will fly this year, "sooner to this date than the end of the year."

FWIW...

The SkyCatcher was made in China, and it's O-200 engine parent company was also bought by the Chinese. Both did not sit well with Gen-Av types...

None of the general aviation aircraft manufactures are doing well. Mooney aircraft corporation was recent helped by the Chinese. I didn't know that Mooney had stopped building aircraft. They required an injection of capital by the Chinese to get production back up and running in Kerrville, Texas.

” “That program didn’t have a business model that worked,” he said.”

No kidding! An “inexpensive” airplane became $150,000. I can buy all kinds of good airplanes with better characteristics for less money.

The idea was capitalize on the “Light Sport Aircraft” (LSA) market. That market wanted airplanes in the $25,000 to $65,000 price range at most.

An LSA is an airplane that weights no more than about half of what other airplanes weight, have weaker engines, and only require a Sport class license that allows a pilot to fly at his local airport during the daytime and only require about half the regular pilot training and use a driver’s license as the medical certificate instead of an FAA Medical Examiner performing a flight physical.

It was really about medically unqualified pilots, and people desiring to be pilots but medically unfit, that just wanted to get into the air. Some say it was about reducing costs for people only wanting to fly some. For some people that was true. The airplane market really does want to cut costs, but some used the opportunity to try to cheat the system.

“Cheat” in what way?”

An FAA medical is very simple: No heart conditions, good eye sight, good hearing, and few other key ingredients that are not hard to achieve, like not be on certain medications. Under the Sport license using the driver’s license there are no changes to the requirements. Same list.

So, if the two licenses have the same medical requirements, then why does one have an FAA medical certificate required and the other does not?

Simple. People that cannot get an FAA medical and know they have a disqualifying medical condition fly under the Sport regulations illegally. I personally can name a number of them. One guy had cataracts so bad he could barely drive. We had to turn him in but he had been flying for several years before that. One guy had a heart attack. Didn’t tell the FAA then moved to Sport where he didn’t have to. Other guys don’t want to complete the requirements to get a pilot’s license because of the medical issue but then fly at night or more than 25 miles from their home airport without the instructor certifications.

It’s all about rigging the system to cheat the medical.

I’ve heard them claim that, but I don’t believe it. Even if it’s more crash-worthy somehow in laboratory tests, they are like motorcycles: Ya can’t see ‘em. Especially if it’s raining, when they have the poorest traction.

I was never a pilot, but my father was. Owned a Piper Cherokee 140. It was something like 20 years old when he was flying it, and it was in great condition. Planes had to pass annuals, 200 hour checks if you were leasing it out.

Yes, thank you. That is correct. And, if you’re leasing it out, it doesn’t take long to tick off 100 hours. IIRC, he only leased it for a few turns and decided it was cheaper to leave the plane tied down when he wasn’t using it. “Checks” were not a trivial matter, things were routinely replaced.

I learned to fly in a Cessna 152. Rented Cessna 172s after I got my certificate. The in 96 I bought and built a 2 seat experimental seaplane kit. A crate of steel, aluminum, and fabric. I put 250 hours on it and sold it in 2001. I borrow and rent now.

“Ernest’s comments after his presentation categorized the SkyCatcher program simply. “That program didn’t have a business model that worked,” “

The original pan was to offer a GA LSA aircraft to the general public, as the new “150”, for less than $70K.

The mere fact that they had go to China, and still couldn’t keep the price under $125K says a lot about the current state of manufacturing in America.

All of those delays cost Cessna the market, as other LSA’s like the Slovenian-built Pipistrel Virus took away the market.

Wow, the Chinese have been busy converting their US debt/bonds/T bills into hard assets. In the end they will own us. I had no idea that Cirrus was owned by the Chinese. I think a lot of companies try to hid their Chinese ownership.

Those six cylinder Continental engines used in the 172 were some of the smoothest running aircraft engines ever built, IMO.

No market for a $130,000 2 seater that cruises at about 100 knots and can’t fly at night or IFR? Who could’ve ever guessed? /sarc

There could be a huge market for a new affordable GA airplane in the US, especially with the TSA. But Cirrus wanted to target the rich guys who used to buy Bos and Mooneys, and Cessna wanted to sell an LSA at a price that 95% of potential customers could never afford. And there’s still no one making an airplane that most of the market can afford.

I first saw a Smart-type car in Paris in 2004, parked on a side street near Gare du Norde. It had been backed up to the curb due to lack of space, and didn’t extend any farther into the street than the normal-sized (yet small) cars on either side.

Still got a parking ticket tho, lol

The whole point of using the Driver’s License criteria is the logic that says that if you are medically safe to drive a vehicle weighing 3,000 to 26,000 lbs and carrying up to 15 people while closing head on with other vehicles at a combined speed of 120 mph and passing within 6 feet of each other, then you are probably safe to pilot yourself and one other person in an aircraft weighing no more that 1320 lbs and traveling at 120 kts.

If you have a heart attack while driving a full sized van with 10 or more pax on a two lane road with other traffic then you are far more dangerous than having that same heart attack while tooling around the patch in a J-3.

You said that “we had to turn him in...”. Who is we? IOW, from what frame of reference are you addressing this issue? Medical examiner?, Flight instructor?

Since I’ve asked, just to be fair, I hold a Comm, SEL, Rotorcraft-Helicopter and Instrument-Airplane ticket. I also have a US Navy Fixed Wing & Helicopter Instrument Rating. I also had a triple bypass 10 years ago, after which my cardiologist cleared me to return to work, “chopping wood, digging ditches and everything”.

While this is obviously NOT the same as passing an FAA Second Class Medical it does indicate that I was capable of resuming normal life, including driving the above mentioned vehicles.

Yes, there are a few cheaters using the Sport Pilot designation. There are also cheaters flying Bonanzas, driving while drunk, half asleep or texting. However, one assumption of the Sport Pilot rating is that most pilots are neither suicidal nor homicidal. That “...either a 3rd class FAA medical certificate or a current and valid U.S. driver’s license (serves) as evidence of medical eligibility (provided the individual’s most recent application for an FAA medical certificate was not denied, revoked, suspended or withdrawn).”

I have NOT lost my medical and would NEVER cheat.

I am simply trying to have a discussion about the rationale behind the Sport Pilot certificate. At the moment I feel like the guy who asked the fish, "How's the water", to which the fish replied, "What water?"

You seemed to be immersed in the ocean of "All Sport Pilots are cheaters".

I asked about your background in order to better understand your frame of reference. We appear to be looking at the Sport Pilot medical situation from completely different viewpoints.

I no longer fly, primarily due to financial considerations. If I were to fly using the Sport Pilot designation I would meet the letter and the spirit of the law. I am legal & safe to drive automobiles, including pulling a trailer up to 10,000lbs or a Combined Gross Weight of 26,000lbs. Ergo, I am Safe & Legal to fly as a Sport Pilot. Rod Machado, as always, gives a succinct summation:

"First, a sport pilot license doesn't require that you have an FAA issued third-class medical certificate. It only requires that you have a valid U.S.drivers license without having an official denial or revocation of an FAA medical certificate on file with the FAA. This means if you have a drivers license then the FAA considers you medically qualified to fly as a sport pilot in a sport airplane." Why Sport vs. Private Pilot?

I would never drive or fly when I am unsafe. Does my having had a heart bypass make me an unsafe driver? Not according to the several cardiologists by whom I have been treated.

To: BwanaNdege

You claim to be a pilot yet you equate driving with flying?

The entire idea of a Sport class is to get around the medical. Third class medicals are a cinch to get. Machado is a giving bad legal advice. He fails to mention that if you know of a reason that you might fail a third class medical you also have reason to know that you cannot fly otherwise.

The idea is that when a pilot knows they will no longer meet requirements they simply move to Sport and lie about their condition. Why is it lying? Because of this little regulation:

§ 61.53 Prohibition on operations during medical deficiency.

(a) Operations that require a medical certificate. Except as provided for in paragraph (b) of this section, a person who holds a current medical certificate issued under part 67 of this chapter shall not act as pilot in command, or in any other capacity as a required pilot flight crewmember, while that person:

(1) Knows or has reason to know of any medical condition that would make the person unable to meet the requirements for the medical certificate necessary for the pilot operation; or

(2) Is taking medication or receiving other treatment for a medical condition that results in the person being unable to meet the requirements for the medical certificate necessary for the pilot operation.

(b) Operations that do not require a medical certificate. For operations provided for in §61.23(b) of this part, a person shall not act as pilot in command, or in any other capacity as a required pilot flight crewmember, while that person knows or has reason to know of any medical condition that would make the person unable to operate the aircraft in a safe manner.

(c) Operations requiring a medical certificate or a U.S. driver’s license. For operations provided for in §61.23(c), a person must meet the provisions of—

(1) Paragraph (a) of this section if that person holds a valid medical certificate issued under part 67 of this chapter and does not hold a current and valid U.S. driver’s license.

(2) Paragraph (b) of this section if that person holds a current and valid U.S. driver’s license.
