Dear Dave Hall, I would like to get in contact with you regarding the history of the LASA60 and your work in the CAA test flights of it.
I am the owner of two AL60-B2 (one is flying quite a bit) and I am trying to research the history of it in more detail.
Best Regards,
Lars Gleitsmann

Hallo Lars!
Sorry for my late response. I just notice you sent me a message. I guess I should be more aware of this.

Finally I repaired the aircraft a couple of years ago. The fuselage is perfect ! I am just waiting to get some capital and invest on a PT6-28. My LASA was modified in Canada with a PT6-20 but this engine is old. I hope next year I can buy a half life engine.

Best regards

Manuel

Hi Manuel,
How is it going? Did you get yours fixed back up? There is a wreck in Iceland and I wonder if we could joint venture and buy it from the owner and split it for parts...
Best Regards,
Lars

Hi,
That airplane is still around !!! - The plane in the story would be now VH-ELI in Australia !!!
The owner of the company was Blair Estenson, isn't it??
Best Regards,
Lars

Hi Guy,
You had one in Quebec, wasn't it? Did you have the IO-720-A1B powered one from the USA or the one with the turbine?
With the wheelpants mine cruises at 112knots.

Lars

Hi Nicolas Hucki,
Yours is the red one isn't it? Do you still have it? Is it still for sale? If not, where did it go?
The one (D-EAFG) in the picture above did go to the Ukraine, but I have no contact for its new owner!
Please email me,
Best Regards,
Lars

Hello, does anyone know of any of these that are still flying and are for sale? I'd prefer on that's been converted to turbine, but can do that myself if needed.

My AL60 is for sale in France 15000

Hi everyone !

My name is Manuel, from Mexico. The writing is very nice and interesting.

In fact, I would like to ask for some help. I am the owner of a LASA-60, and several months ago I suffered an accident. The plane was damaged considerably but I have some hope in order to repair it.

Looking at the wing structure, I realized that some special parts (a rare tube for instance that runs inside the wing) are needed for the reparation, among others.

My interest is to find a non-flying LASA-60 and probably buy some spare parts.

Does some of you can help me with some information ??? I will really appreciate it. This is my email: skydivemexico@gmail.com

Best regards !!

Manuel

About 1970 a small commuter airline was started to provide service to the San Juan islands from Seattle. Five smaller lines combined to form puget sound airlines. One of these lockheeds was in their inventory and was placed on the mail run between the islands and anacortes. We monitored the unicom frequency. One afternoon ,headed for anacortes, Tommy Clark was headed for the barn when he radioed that the engine had shucker it's innards and he was going down. He made it into an old short hayfield intact. Tommy gave up flying for thirty years or so! He now owns a Franklin powered Stinson 108.

Plane got off he ground pretty good but only climb due to the curvature of the earth.
One nice thing about the plane was a really big side door

I went to work at Lockheed in 1962 and was placed in a training program for flight testing. Our class assignment was to run much of the CAA flight tests on the LASA 60. I spent a fair amount of time riding in it from Burbank to Palomar where we did a lot of the test flying. Not a bad GA aircraft, seemed to be a clone of the C-182. Good training for my later work on the Blackbird.

The 3-view drawing used on this webpage here is bogus, I can supply a better one. I have a AL60B2, and am restoring it to its original paint when it was with the Rhodesian Air Force after the UDI. I am looking for ANY Color PHOTO of this type of Plane with The Rho.AF. ANY help is welcome.
Best regards,
Lars

I owned one of these planes

I don't think it could go 158 mph straight down.
the cruise speed was around 90
Plane got off he ground pretty good but only climb due to the curvature of the earth.

(you could put a piece of plywood in the thing!)
