s64-1

Kelly Shergood’s newest S-64 Skycrane is still in Beta, but already it has impressed test pilots and early buyers. The beautifully crafted utility helicopter has a realistic startup and flight system, along with a winch (crew or individually operated).

As with other Shergood Aviation releases there is a tremendous attention to detail and realism that is sure to appeal to buyers.

The beta version is on sale and display now at Grayling Airport and Kelly Shergood is hoping for a pre-New Years release of the final. A pilot we caught up with at Grayling said that the beta is “pure joy” and had an alarming look of excitement on their face.

The S-64 is an aircraft that is already in high demand, and is likely to become a staple of the airways. “It’s a perfect fit,” said Sketch Sun, President of the Waterbank Business Association. “The biggest industry in our world is construction, and the Skycrane is built for heavy loads. I see an award in the future for Shergood Aviation.”

Shergood Aviation (SHAV) stocks have been rising since the release of the helicopter.

Husky Aviation, the company behind the lauded CRJ-700, has come up with a consumer checklist for aircraft buyers that easily could fit any product.

“Husky’s great,” said WBA President Sketch Sun, “they’re conscientious, innovative, and now everyone can see how much they care about consumers. Major thumbs up.”

The Claw, the chaos inspiring cabal, has fought back with their own version of Echo Squadron, releasing a paint and instructions on how to join their ranks.

In a very different kind of press release from their counterpart at the Coastal Patrol (link to CP story), the Claw treated reporters to a three course meal at a remote airfield some three hours flight from the Blake Sea. After removing our hoods they served a fig and prosciutto salad and explained what they were doing.

“We apologize for the secrecy,” they told us, “but you understand. The Claw is creating its own squadrons to fight the menace of the Coastal Patrol. We have instructions for all aspiring Claw members, be they pirates, scoundrels, rogues, misunderstood, or freelancers.

Pilots will need the approved aircraft, the ZSK P-40E (link) and the official Claw paint (link), being sold through F.I.. Half the proceeds from the sale of the paint will return to the manufacturer, ZSK. We look forward to seeing our new Claw pilots take to the skies!”

Downsizing at the WAA has resulted in changes here at Waterbank News. We will no longer be listing airports, but instead referring pilots and passengers to one of the better aviation resources (see links). WAA is no longer classifying airports, saying that “Bob has gone onto the big buffet at Feral Logistics. He ain’t comin’ back.”

A full list of airports, courtesy of the radar map at Shergood Aviation (link) is after the jump (alphabetical as of 2/8/16). Read More
