Progressive Aerodyne was a good kit company, but is in over their heads with LSAs.

Since the departure of the previous owner/investor, they do not employee any engineers or competent quality control professionals and are under the direction of a very arrogant and clueless CEO.

There are multiple, major known safety issues with the airplane without any appropriate publishing of safety bulletins to the owner community.

Hopefully someone steps in before people get hurt.

Agree with the above post. A&P mechanics will rarely touch them
