Phoenix Composites/Performance One Aviation is the premier composite repair, modification and kit-built assist center in the United States.Dace’s highly modified, supremely crafted Glasair III is legendary within the experimental aircraft universe as being among the finest examples of detail, planning, engineering and craftsmanship. This aircraft was awarded the “Lindy Award” for best composite aircraft at Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 2000. The list of additions, modifications, options, accessories, avionics, etc. is mind boggling. With a Demars Special Edition IO540-P1A5 350 hp Lycoming engine this rocket ship cruises at 265 mph.
