December 2014 update. I have re-arranged this page.
The Building my Expedition E350 in the factory, has a lot of pictures.
The Dimensions of the Expedition E350 aircraft. A reference.
Then, Pictures of older models of Found Aviation aircraft. Some history
The color scheme for my plane. It’s amazing how a concept drawing became beautiful reality.
Then came bankruptcy of the company
Sometime in summer 2013, the companies Found Aviation and Expedition Aircraft went into receivership, (the Canadian phrase for bankrupty). As I am writing this update in December 2014, I still have not heard news of who bought the company remnants at the receivership auction. If I hear any confirmed news, I will post it. If you happen to know before I do, please let me know.
Before the bankruptcy, actually back in 2008, I wrote down my thougts about the competing airplanes that were around at the time. In 2014, Cessna and the others are surviving.
|Didn’t have sufficient range and load ability.|
|Is closer, but insuring 6 seats is more than I need. You
can’t get a new 206 for under $500,000 either.
|Is significantly smaller than E350.|
|The Murphy Moose is a consideration..|
I still fly my plane
The loss of the Found aviation company is sad, but these airplanes are still in existence and are flown by people who love them. 13 Expedition aircraft were delivered, and my daughter and I still enjoy and are proud of owning one. My further adventures in flying are on my personal hobby blog in the flying category.
