FFA AS-202 Bravo disappeared from FanJet Aviation website

The As-202 was quite a while available to order from FanJet Aviation, which was the TC holder for quite a while.
Now I have noticed that the Bravo has completely disappeared from their website. I was wondering if the TC went in other hand (again)...

What's an As-202? Not this, I suppose? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AS-202

This German company seems to specialise in TC's no longer supported by the original owner. For the Do28, they hold an STC for changing the engines to Walter turbines; for the As-202 they simply state "if interested in this type, please get in touch" which isn't saying very much as to the current state of things.

This page appears from Google when crossing the words AS-202 and Fanjet aviation:
[URL="http://www.fanjetaviation.com/design/"]

It used to be reachable on the website now it has been hidden; as you can see it says about Gomolzig: "Fanjet Aviation exclusively offers this unique aircraft new or used as a broker for Gomolzig Flugzeug und Maschinenbau GmbH, Schwelm/Wuppertal. Gomolzig produces new aircraft and holds the Bravo 202 type certificate."

Fantastic aircraft. British Aerospace flying college has 12 of them at PIK in the late 1980s/1990s

parkfell, indeed a nice machine, although pretty conventional in its design; such a pity that development was abandoned. It would have deserved better glory.
