Early last month, the Superior Court judge presiding over the lawsuit between Farnborough Aircraft and Epic Aircraft parent Aircraft Investor Resources (AIR) granted an injunction allowing Farnborough access to the F1/Kestrel JP100 prototype that AIR was building under an agreement. Several days after the ruling, Farnborough personnel moved the prototype, which was missing its previously installed wings and horizontal stabilizer, from AIR’s Bend, Ore. facility to another hangar to finish assembly of the turboprop single. Under court order, AIR had until tomorrow to deliver to Farnborough Aircraft a set of wings and horizontal stabilizer for the F1 prototype. An arbitration hearing to resolve the remaining disputes is scheduled for June 12. Meanwhile, Farnborough hopes to fly its prototype in June or July.
