Thank you,

Dragon:  This is the mission patch for N357AW, the most recent Aerochia Super Legacy.  Wasabi was tasked with getting the airplane airworthy and doing the phase one test program.  The names on the top of the patch are the four core members of the team, Andy Chiavetta, Justin Gillen, Elliot Seguin, and Jon Hadlich.  The center of the patch is a dragon.  The dragon was a south pacific style kite that was donated to ward off the gremlins that seemed to be haunting the program.  The patch was designed by Michael Lizama (@BTMichael).

Race 44: This is the mission patch for Lynn Farnworth's race 44 build up and participation at Reno 2014.  The patch is Mowgli (Andy) juggling so many difficult problems.  This program was aggressive before the gremlins started to plague the airplane.  The result was a couple turbo failures (the snails) and Lynn's impressive dead stick during a heat race at Reno.  The names in the center of the patch are the core members of that team Andy Chiavetta, Elliot Seguin, and Justin Gillen. The patch was designed by Michael Lizama (@BTMichael).

Darth Vader:  This is the mission patch for Wasabi's 2014 season.  This was a very busy year for Wasabi, we cut the gear off the airplane, tested an exciting new Catto propeller, increased our gross weight by 20%, and flew non-stop to Oshkosh for the airplane's EAA debut.  The most important was we consistently went faster and finished better than we ever had.  The patch was designed by Michael Lizama (@BTMichael).

Sunrise: This is the mission patch for the Mojave to Oshkosh non-stop formation flight and associated testing and formation practice.  The patch shows a formation of exotic aircraft flying in formation towards the rising sun while other folks are still still catching a few last Zs.  The aircraft on the patch include, Dustin Riggs flying Dick Rutan's Ol' Blue, Doug Dodson flying his Glassair II, Zach Reeder flying the Rutan Catbird, Elliot Seguin flying Wasabi, Justin Gillen flying the Tangotimemachine, and Brandon Cangiano flying Polaire his Lancair Legacy.
