Home of Wasabi Air Racing

Elliot Seguin and Jenn Whaley's Formula One class air race team based out of Mojave, California. Pylon racing at the National Championship Air Races in Reno Nevada. Eight airplanes racing head to head around telephone poles in the desert. Mojave is the best place on the planet to build and modify a race plane, and Wasabi is lucky to have the best support in the business.

Mower Power to the People

Last week Wasabi's airframe specialist Ken Baker got stranded for weather in Texas, as a result he had to leave his Piper Arrow behind and airline back to Mojave to make it to Scaled for work Monday.  Rescuing the stranded Baker was the perfect opportunity to get some more cross country data on the GT-400 and check out an aviation legend in the flesh.

The DA-11 has a cult following at Scaled Composites, and I have been trying to get to Texas to see it for a while.  Below are some of the pictures from the trip.  Such a freaking cool airplane.
