Francisco Agullo: welcome to Tannkosh!

Dear Tannkosh-Crews and Visitors,

another flying legend has announced his visit to Tannkosh 2013: Mr. Francisco Agullo from Switzerland will be flying in with his "Twinbo"! The pilot as well as the aircraft are quite legendary:

Beechcraft B50 Twin Bonanza, nick named „Twin-Bo“

One of the most successful civil aircraft built in the 1950's, it was also adopted by the military. A total of 994 aircraft have been built, only 2 Twinbos are still flying in Europe!

Registration N3682B, built 1954, Serial-Nr. CH-103, 2 Lycoming GO-435
engines with 275 HP each, wingspan 13.8m, lenth 9.6m, height 3.5m, MTOW 2900kg.

It's an honour to welcome Francisco Agullo to Tannkosh for the first time.
He is a very experienced pilot and has flown all over the world. He is also the founder of the Super Constellation Flying Association.

Francisco will be the commentator during the Flyby of "his" Super Connie during Tannkosh - as a training captain on this aircraft he knows it intimately - and we are very much looking forward to meeting him in person.

Welcome to Tannkosh, Francisco!

Francisco Agullo

Francisco is 42 years old and lives in Geneva. His passion for aviation
started when he was a kid. After completing an ETS Engineering degree he decided to become a bush pilot, initially in North Canada and a few years later in Africa for the United Nations.

After returning to Europe, he flies as an Airline Pilot for TEA, Swissair and Privatair. In Switzerland, at the age of 28, he becomes the youngest Captain to fly an aeroplane weighing more than 100 tons.
In 2000, Francisco creates the « Super Constellation Flyers Association » which operates one of the last two airworthy Lockheed Super Constellation in the world.

In order to improve his technical knowledge, Francisco joins in 2006 the prestigious National Test Pilots School (NTPS) in Mojave, California.

In 2008, he buys a Douglas DC-3 and flies it today as the "Breitling DC-3"

Fluently speaking 5 languages, he loves to travel and has been already 7 times around the World flying an airliner.... and once with an Ecolight !

Today, Francisco has accumulated over 11'000 flight hours in 44 different aircraft types. He is today Captain and Flight Instructor on DC-3, DC-4, DC-6, DC-7, L-1049 and B757/B767.
