Default Pirotti models now in CARF's control

Breaking news is that the Pirotti sports jets are being manufactured by CARF now, I think a full release will be done at FJ next week.
I know fans of the range will be happy as the finish will be more consistent.

Yahoo, maybe now they will be able to be had with some certainty, and not the long wait until “I don’t know when”. This going to make the decision as to what to get next a little harder. Don’t see it yet on the CARF site under the “news” information, but i’m sure it will not take long.

Yes, I'm sure it will improve the situation I know existed before. I understand it will go on the site over the weekend

Does this mean Pirotti is out of business and CompARF bought the tooling and naming rights?
I tried unsuccessfully to purchase a Rebel Hot and just gave up on the idea.
I wonder how long it will take for CompARF to be able to deliver Pirotti jets to customers?

Pirotti are still there with the G-91 and the original owner stays as the Italian agent, CARF bought the designs and moulds and will ‘CARF’ them all. Things are well advanced, talk to CARF at FJ and I’m sure deliveries can be confirmed

I’m told Hot and 2m Rebel production is just about to start, with the complete range in manufacture by April.
Im sureguys who do visit FJ will update the thread with more info. For sure there will be new schemes too.

I guess the Tuono is no longer made. Shame, liked the look of that one. Not a fan of the Rebel design in the least.

I liked the look of the Tuono as well... especially with the curved wing tips. There was one in a Black JPS colour scheme at jet power many years ago and it looked stunning
