Draco Lives

Kevin Flanagan

Mike Patey, CEO of Best Tugs and airplane builder had built one of the most fantastic Backcountry planes I've ever seen, named Draco. This past summer however, he had a gust incident on his rollout for a takeoff which caused the aircraft to tumble, and subsequently destoying the red plane. Fortunately, nobody had any injuries.

Currently, Mike is building a new dream into reality named Scappy, and will soon be once again flying his own hand-made creation. He took a break in his Scappy video series to highlight the life of Draco, and that is what this video is all about.


Twin brothers, Mike and Mark Patey talk with Desert News about their life in the air.
