N330CG - Panzl Staudacher 330 Ser No. 002



Welcome to the webpage of N330CG - a Panzl 330 built by Greg Panzl in Onsted Michigan. I acquired this airplane for the principal purpose of training for and competing at the 2012 World Advanced Aerobatic Championships in Nyiregyhaza Hungary in summer 2012.  I was one of 8 pilots to qualify for the USA Advanced Aerobatic team at the 2011 US National Aerobatic Championships.  


Loren Smith, owner of Panzl No. 001 has a great writeup on the Panzl at http://www.iac78.org/panzl/panzlinfo.html.  


Powered by a Lycoming IO-540 with an MT prop, the Panzl has 330hp, rolls 400 degrees per second (many, many vertical rolls), has reclined seating making 10g pulls relatively GLOC-free, has an unbreakable wing, and unbelievably great lines for competitive aerobatics.
