Scheyden is proud to have “Super” Dave Matheison fly the MX2, one of the world’s most advanced aerobatic aircraft. Custom wrapped for Team Scheyden, this plane is capable of rolling at 500 degrees per second.
The MX2 is a carbon fiber, two seat tandem sport aircraft produced by MX Aircraft of North Carolina. The MX2 has been used by competitors in the annual Red Bull Air Race World Championship. The MX2 was based on the Giles G-202 aerobatic trainer, the first prototype was a modified G-202 and first flew in May 2002. The first aircraft of the initial production batch of five first flew in May 2005. The MX2 is a carbon-fibre low wing cantilever monoplane with full span ailerons and a conventional landing gear with a tailwheel. It has an enclosed cockpit for two in tandem on recling seats and a single piece canopy. The MX2 is powered by a 260 hp (194 kW) Lycoming IO-540 flat-six piston engine with a three-blade tractor propeller. Optimised for aerobatic speed and agility the MX2 can pull a G-load of plus and minus 12 Gs, giving it tight turns and loops and a range of aerobatic maneuvers.
Come see how pilot “Super” Dave Matheison can push this 1300 pound, 385 HP aviation machine to the limit. Just like the MX2, Scheyden is all about PRECISION! Our message is simple; Work hard! Give your best! And be precise! No matter what, never stop chasing your dreams! Booyah!
