OMG, the Egg-With-Legs! A good friend of mine was on the design and production team, as was one of Cirrus's SR design team members.
That short-coupled gear demands a pilot's full attention when landing.
Andy, it's true that many designs from the Venture were used in the Cirrus. I too was worried about the short coupled gear, but in practice, it hasn't been as much of an issue as I first thought it would be. I think the perfect Venture would have a wider fixed gear and a parachute! Mini Cirrus Egg! And would do 220 knots!
Yeah, one just crashed at Spruce Creek 7FL6 during landing. Instructions given to a new owner of new build. Guess it comes in pretty hot.
Yes, one did crash in Spruce Creek in late October. Details here: Venture Crash @ Spruce Creek The pilot is a close friend of mine and I'm glad he is doing fine now (cracked ribs). Stall is 61 knots dirty. Specs Approach for me is 85 knots.
Here's my favorite one: Beautiful Red Rocket Venture video
