After the ugliness of the recent election season, I thought we might appreciate some uplifting news of a different, more personal sort, from our Parkwest family all the way down in Paraguay. While the Americans have been duking it out over candidates, Beto has been hard at work on two projects of great importance to Paraguayan aviation history: the continuing progress on the Deperdussin replica (now with new motor and having achieved flight), and the design and construction of a replica Potez 25.

I just want to say felicidades to Roberto and his team, who have dedicated much time and many brain cells in order to research, engineer and painstakingly accomplish this incredible work.
To learn more or follow their progress more closely, you can Google or search Facebook for Proyecto Potez 25 or Proyecto Pettirossi.
