Got stuck in the wikipedia wormhole and ended up looking at all the aircraft Bellanca designed. The last one really caught my eye. Looks really modern for something made so long ago. Bellanca Skyrocket ii. First flight in 1975. Composite construction. Cruise of 255, stall at 65. Can haul 6 people with an 1800 pound useful. Really impressive numbers and overall look. Never made it to certification but NASA even looked at the aerodynamics because of its speed. Without certification and only one built some of the weight numbers should be taken with a grain of salt. Just a damn shame for the people of Bellanca as well as GA in general to not have that plane flying. What other planes out there would you have liked to have seen produced, or even brought back into production? Or available in kit form? I've always thought the Comanche to Cherokee step Piper did was backwards. But alas being cheaper to produce apparently drove the market back then. Everything about the Comanche aerodynamically speaking was far superior than the Cherokee. I know the Ravin is a Comanche clone.
